NCP leader Nawab Malik has alleged that Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, who performed in Mumbai on Saturday at the Global Citizen Festival, has disrespected the Indian flag. Malik took to social media to draw attention to images and video clips showing the Indian flag tucked in Martin’s back pocket during the performance.

Malik has of course demanded an apology.

Poor Martin. Somebody should have told him that no matter how unnoticed these things go in other countries - look at the pictures below - it won’t in India.
