Why national flag hoisting prevented in Srinagar? Shiv Sena

Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Wednesday asked why some youths were prevented by police from hoisting the national flag at Lal Chowk in Srinagar despite the abrogation of Article 370.

An editorial in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ also asked what has changed in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370, and said “Hindutva means nationalism”.

Three people, claiming to be BJP workers from Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir, were on Monday detained while trying to hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar.

“The ‘duplicate mardani’ who calls Mumbai ‘PoK’ is given security by the central government, while the youth who hoist the tricolour in Kashmir are taken away by police,” the Sena mouthpiece said without naming actress Kangana Ranaut.

“The nation wants to know why the youth could not hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk? This means Kashmir’s situation hasn’t improved,” the editorial said.

In Mumbai, the tricolour is hoisted and this means “it is not Pakistan”, it said, adding that “the triclour is insulted where there is Pakistani interference”.

The actress should vent her anger at the tricolour not been allowed in Kashmir, it said without naming Ranaut.

Ranaut’s remark equating Mumbai with Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (Pok) had led to a furore, drawing the battle-lines between the Shiv Sena and her.

The editorial claimed former J&K CM Farooq Abdullah said help of China will be sought to restore Article 370 in the Union Territory, and it also criticised PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti over her comments on the national flag.

“This is sedition,” it said.

The National Conference on Monday denied that its president Farooq Abdullah had made such a remark.

Mufti last week said she was not interested in contesting elections or holding the tricolour till the constitutional changes enforced on August 5 last year were rolled back.

The Sena editorial claimed that over a year after the abrogation of Article 370, not a single rupee investment has come to Kashmir, unemployed youth are taking up arms again and local leaders are misleading them.
