Waving Pak flags no crime, says Hurriyat

A day after Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed said action would be taken against those who have waived Pakistani flag at a recent rally, Hurriyat Conference on Sunday claimed that waving flags of that country is no crime.

Terming the statement as Mufti’s frustration, Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar in a release said, “Some enthusiastic youths raised Pakistani flag which is nothing new as Kashmir has affection with this country (Pakistan).”

Quoting state High Court ruling of 1983, he said, “The waving of Pakistani flag doesn’t come in the category of crime and hoisting of flag doesn’t amount to the waging of war against any country. The hoisting of flag is not although any big issue but the position of India and its agencies is so weak in J&K that merely a waving of cloth puts their occupation in acute danger.”
