San Francisco Indian Consulate is set on fire in a video released on Twitter by supporters of Khalistan on July 2, 2023.
The recent attack on the Indian consulate building in San Francisco has been denounced by the US as a criminal offense.
The reported destruction and attempted arson against the Indian Consulate in San Francisco on Saturday are strongly condemned by the US. Vandalism or violence directed at diplomatic buildings or foreign diplomats while they are in the United States is illegal, according to State Department spokesman Matthew Miller in a tweet on Monday.
Supporters of Khalistan posted a video of the consulate being set on fire early on Sunday morning to social media. In addition to news items, the film also includes the words “violence begets violence” written across it regarding the passing of Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF) leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was located in Canada.
Nijjar, who was on India’s most-wanted terrorists list and had a Rs. 10 lakh cash bounty on his head, was killed by gunfire last month outside a gurdwara in Canada.
Manjinder Singh Sirsa, a BJP politician, also denounced the San Francisco event. Tweeted is, “I vehemently condemn the incident of the July 2nd arson attack on the Indian Consulate in San Francisco, California. “The Indian government has always stood by Sikhs when they face challenges wherever in the world.
I implores Sikhs everywhere to band together to oppose such ISI-sponsored terrorism.
