India’s foreign ministry has compared the storming of the historic Red Fort complex by protesting farmers in New Delhi on January 26 to the violence at the United States’ Capitol Hill earlier this year by the supporters of former US President Donald Trump. This, Al Jazeera reports, after tens of thousands of protesting farmers broke police barricades to storm the Mughal-era fort, with many climbing onto its ramparts to wave farm union and religious flags in the location where prime ministers annually hoist the national flag to mark the country’s independence and thousands more marching on foot or riding on horseback while shouting slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
