Days after the assurance of the Prime Minister of Australia, Anthony Albanese, to curb anti-Indian elements in the country, Khalistani supporters blocked entry to the Indian Consulate in Brisbane (Australia), raising slogans against the Hindus. The Consulate was forced to close temporarily, according to the media.
According to The Australian Todayslogans were raised against Hindus calling them ‘supremacists’ at the Consulate, which is located on Swann Road in the suburb of Taringa in Brisbane.
Queensland Police said it was an unauthorized assembly. “The Indian Consulate was forced to close today due to security concerns after Sikhs for Justice targeted them with their propaganda,” Sarah L. Gates, Director of Hindu Human Rights, told The Australia Today.
“They have been shouting Khalistan Zindabad slogans,” Gates said, adding that there was a heavy police presence in the area.
“These thugs should not be allowed to dictate how we live our life in Australia,” Parvinder Singh, a Queensland resident who took time off work to attend an appointment at the Indian Consulate, told The Australia Today .
The development comes a few days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with Albanians and conveyed India’s concerns over the vandalism of several Hindu temples by activists demanding Khalistan.
