The claim made by Ashoke Pandit that Khalistan flag was hoisted by protestors during the tractor rally in Delhi is false.
Firstly, the Indian tricolor flag was not replaced by any other flag. Secondly, India Today spoke to Harinder Pal Singh, a Sikh scholar and senior member of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, who confirmed that the flag hoisted at Red Fort was the Nishan Sahib and not the Khalistan flag. “I have watched it carefully, and it is clearly the Nishan Sahib, a symbol of Sikh spirituality, which was hoisted on Red Fort. It is not a Khalistan flag,” Singh said.
Therefore, we conclude that Ashoke Pandit falsely claimed that farmers hoisted the Khalistan flag.
