Indian media sites spotted an Indian national flag waving in the crowd of Wednesday’s rally in support of U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington, DC, the WION network reported on Thursday.
“Amid the massive protests, which saw people carrying flags of the United States and of ‘Trump 2020’ and ‘Trump 2024’, one person also waived Indian tricolor,” WION noted.
Video footage of the Indian flag being waved at the rally by an off-camera participant went viral on Twitter. Many social media users in India seemed puzzled at the flag’s presence at the demonstration.
An Indian lawmaker named Varun Gandhi, who belongs to India’s ruling, Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), posted a video clip of the flag waving in the crowd on Twitter with the caption, “Why is there an Indian flag there??? This is one fight we definitely don’t need to participate in”:
