Srinagar: Separatist outfit Dukhtaran-e- Millat chief Asiya Andrabi celebrated Pakistan National Day in Srinagar by singing the country’s anthem and hoisting its flag.
“Pakistan was not formed on basis of a nationality (like India), Islam is the basis of its foundation…Every Muslim is a Pakistani on the basis of Islam, Iman (faith), Quran and love for Prophet Muhammad,” she said.
Andrabi has made incendiary statements before. Last April, she was booked under the ‘Public Safety Act’ and arrested, for allegedly inciting protests and for unlawful activities. She was released on bail eight months later in December.
Pakistan observes National Day every year on March 23. The Pakistan High Commissioner Sohail Mahmood, who was summoned by Pakistan last week, returned to India late last night, in time be able to to host an event on the occasion at the Pakistan high commission in Delhi.
