The protesters raised anti-India and pro-army slogans. They hailed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif.
Protesters marched from Airport Road to Zero Point Chowk where they set ablaze an effigy of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“We want to tell the Indian civil and military establishment that Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) is not Myanmar. The people of Kashmir know how to defend their motherland along with Pakistan Army,” said Hamid Jameel Kashmiri, a protestor participating in the rally..
Later the porters dispersed peacefully.
