Thousands of Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, interrupting a joint session of Congress to certify Joe Biden’s election win, thereby forcing an emergency evacuation at both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Four people were killed and many injured in the chaos that followed inside the US Capitol, incited by the remarks of the sitting president.

During the protest, protestors were spotted waving a tricolor along with the US flags. The use of the Indian flag enraged many Indians on social media.

Priyanka Chaturvedi, Shiv Sena spokesperson wrote,” Whoever is waving this Indian flag should feel ashamed. Don’t use our tricolour to participate in such violent and criminal acts in another country.”

On the other hand, Vir Das, Comedian wrote,” Dear random Indian dude waving Indian flag at the #CapitolRiots, every large crowd is NOT A CRICKET MATCH! ”
