We only hoisted the Nishan Sahib flag on Red Fort while exercising our democratic right to protest: Deep Sidhu

Actor and activist Deep Sidhu, who has been at the forefront in the farmers’ protest posted a video on his Facebook saying, “We have only hoisted the Nishan Sahib flag on the Red Fort while exercising our democratic right to protest.”

He said in such a protest, people’s anger flares up and you cannot blame one person for inciting the protesters.

He said they went to Red Fort as a symbolic protest and didn’t remove the Tricolour but they hoisted the Nishan Sahib flag as a sign of “unity in diversity”.

He also said that today’s incident shouldn’t be seen in isolation as the farmers’ protest has been going on for the past few months.

Sidhu said the protesters didn’t go to Delhi to hurt anyone or damage government property and should not be termed as communal elements or hardliners.

He said the protest was peaceful and symbolic and the emotions of the people should be understood and no one person should be blamed for the mobilisation of people or protest.

He also clarified that India’s flag was not removed from the flagpole and they only hoisted the Kisan Mazdoor Ekta’s flag and the Nishan Sahib.
