Indian flag was held upside down; India depicted in the form of a dog

New Delhi : Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has made a demand with the President, Prime Minister, External Affairs Minister and Sports Minister of India to take stringent action against those who abused Indian national flag during Commonwealth Games held at Glasgow and who depicted India in the form of a dog. The present Central Government is trying to elevate India’s image at international level. Indian officers, sports-persons and citizens tried their best to gain respect for India from people of other countries, but its outcome was not evident. Indians are, however, shocked due to following few incidents.  

1. It was observed in the video-clipping that during Commonwealth games held at Glasgow, Indian flag was held upside down while national anthem was played. Indian flag was held in such way that saffron colour was purposely shown beneath. Insult of national flag is an offence punishable with imprisonment.

2. One dog with India written on its back was taken around during procession which reminded of a notice written outside a restaurant by the British as ‘Indians and dogs are not allowed’. India should boycott such sports events if it is treated disdainfully; also, action should be taken against the organizers of these sports events.

HJS has demanded that the issue should be discussed with conveners of Commonwealth Games and representatives of India so as to book the culprits.
