Srinagar: Hurriyat supporters once again hoisted Pakistani and Islamic State flags in the Kashmir Valley on Friday. While Pakistani flags reappeared in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir, ISIS flags were waved in Srinagar by supporters of separatist leaders.
Supporters of Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq waved Islamic State flags in the heart of Srinagar. Though Pakistani and Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) flags have appeared in the Valley on earlier occasions as well, this is probably the first time that separatist supporters have raised Islamic State flags in the state.
In another incident, supporters of Hurriyat leader Shabir Ahmad Shah waved Pakistani flags in the Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir.
Despite Centre’s warning against such incidents in the Valley, the separatists continue to dare the government by waving Pakistan flags repeatedly.
On May 29 as well, supporters of separatist leader Shabir Shah had waved Pakistani flags in the Anantnag area of the Valley.
Three Pakistani flags were displayed at the rally held by separatist leader Shabir Ahmad Shah in Anantnag. The rally went on for 30 minutes but authorities failed to take any action.
