Yesterday, liberals and conservatives, both lost their collective minds as some of the protesting farmers hoisted the Nishan Sahib flag inside the Red Fort. While the Indian national flag remained hoisted, people were still outraged over the fact that a religious flag would be hoisted in the Red Fort on Republic Day.
We did not take down any flag from any post. Our flag, of Nishan Sahib and Kisan Majdur Ekta, we only hoisted that…. To symbolically register our protest against the new farm legislations, we put up ‘Nishan Sahib’ and a farmer flag and also raised a slogan of Kisan Mazdoor Ekta.
Meanwhile, the Samkyukt Kisan Morcha, the umbrella body of 41 farmer unions had disassociated it self from those who hoisted the flag.
The internet too, has been outraging with many sharing pictures of Deep Sidhu with Sunny Deol and PM Modi and calling him a member of the BJP.
Attempts were made at the beginning of the farmers protest by the media to make Deep Sidhu the face of the farm protests. Attempts are being made to do the same again. The onus isn’t on farmers to distance themselves from him but on the media to prove he is a farmer leader.— Rohini Singh (@rohini_sgh) January 27, 2021
Deep Sidhu, blamed for Red Fort violence, instigated the youth.— Aarti (@aartic02) January 27, 2021

Was Deep Sidhu and his followers responsible for hoisting that flag at the Red Fort?— Dhruv Rathee 🇮🇳 (@dhruv_rathee) January 26, 2021
He is the same person who campaigned for BJP in Lok Sabha Elections. Last time also he caused trouble in the protest by giving alleged Pro-Khalistani statements. pic.twitter.com/vIR0N86kTf
