Vishal Jood, a 25-year-old man from Haryana, who was deported from Australia after pleading guilty to assaults on Sikhs in Sydney received a hero’s welcome as he returned to Karnal on October 17. A road show was organised for Jood with him standing in an open-top vehicle holding the Indian flag.

Jood had visited Australia for the purpose of studying, and in September 2020 was held guilty of assaulting Sikhs in an incident that led to polarisation within the community. He was sentenced to 12 months in jail and given parole after six months.

As the video of his grand welcome went viral, it led to heated debates online.
