The video of the man tearing apart the European nation’s flag went viral on social media after some online platforms claimed that the man, allegedly a BJP supporter, destroyed the flag as he mistook it for the flag of SDPI, a political party.

The Social Democratic Party of India (DPSI) was floated by the now-banned Islamist outfit Popular Front of India (PFI) a decade ago. The incident was reported from Panur Vaidyar Peedika on Tuesday evening.

Police, however, said the man may be a BJP supporter but he did the act in an inebriated state. “He is not an active worker of the BJP and he does not have the history of creating troubles,” a police officer told PTI.

Flags of other nations including that of Argentina and Brazil have also been erected at the junction by the football fans of these nations, they said.

The man was released on station bail after charging him under relevant sections of the Kerala Police Act, they added. The BJP has not reacted to the allegations. Football fever has gripped the state ahead of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
