Pakistani Flag is Raised in Srinagar

Supporters of separatist Masarat Alam, who was controversially released from prison recently, waved Pakistani flags and raised pro-Pakistan slogans at a rally in Srinagar.The BJP has demanded immediate action and asked why the rally was allowed.

The rally was organised by Masarat Alam to welcome Hurriyat Conference hardliner Syed Ali Shah Geelani back to the Valley after several months in Delhi. As hundreds of Mr Alam’s supporters marched through the city and right in front of the office of the state’s Director General of Police, several of them waved Pakistan flags.

Following the incident, the Jammu and Kashmir Police registered a case under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act against Mr Alam, Mr Geelani and other separatist leaders present at the rally.
Masarat Alam, 44, is allegedly the main organiser of the massive protests in 2010 that saw Kashmiris clashing for months with Indian soldiers and police officers. More than 100 people were killed in the violence. He was released controversially from Baramulla jail in March, days after the People’s Democratic Party or PDP’s Mufti Mohammad Sayeed took over as chief minister at the head of a government in which the BJP partners.

“It is highly objectionable and condemnable. The slogans which were raised were pro Pakistan and Pakistan flags, it is unacceptable. Mufti should take cognizance of it so that message clearly goes out to Pakistan supporters that it will not be accepted,” said the BJP’s GVL Narasimha Rao.
