Hurriyat leader waves Pakistani flag at Indian Kashmir rally

Kashmiri leaders had organised a rally against the atrocities of the Indian state

Web Desk April 15, 2015

Hurriyat leader Masarat Alam waved the Pakistani flag on Wednesday to greet Kashmiri separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani at a rally in Srinagar, Indian media reported. 

According to Express News, Kashmiri leaders had organised a rally against the atrocities of the Indian state in Kashmir.

The Times of India reported that Alam also allegedly chanted pro-Pakistani slogans during the rally.

47-year-old Alam is a likely successor to Geelani. He was released from prison after four years on March 7.

India reacted furiously following the show of support for Pakistan at the Srinagar rally.

National Spokesperson Bharatiya Janata Party GVL Narasimha Rao said the act was completely unacceptable.

“We expect the state government of Jammu and Kashmir, headed by Mufti Saeed, to take cognizance of the matter,” Rao added.

Earlier in March, an FIR was registered against Kashmiri leader Asiya Andrabi for unfurling the Pakistani national flag on March 23 in Srinagar. She was booked under the ‘Unlawful Activities Prevention Act’.

The fearless Asiya is the chief of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, a women’s wing associated with the Hurriyat. She allegedly sang the Pakistan national anthem as well after unfurling the flag.

Ameer Paul | 9 years ago | Reply Time is not very far when India will eventually give up it's hegemony to the strugle of Kashmiri people, but it will be too late for India as with J&K will also go away Nagaland, Asam, Bengal, Khalistan, and Southern India. Unnatural India has to be broken up in several parts in order to attain peace, tranquility and aspiration of the people in the region.
