Hours after Hurriyat (G)’s Wednesday rally, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh rang up JK CM Mufti Muhammad Sayeed and asked him to take strictest possible action against those involved in “anti-national activities” during the rally.
“Any step, which can be termed as anti-national cannot be tolerated,” Singh reportedly told Sayeed.
Pertinently, after a gap of five years, the new dispensation yesterday allowed Geelani to hold the rally, which hogged headlines after the recently released separatist Masrat Alam participated in it.
“There is no need to make much out of the rally,” Alam was quoted as saying. “It was peaceful.”
Till Wednesday evening, pitching of pro-Pakistani slogans and unfurling of flags during the rally had set off a raging debate in newsrooms across India.
“It is a visible cognizable offence,” PDP leader said. “Law will take its own course.”
Later, FIRs were slapped on both Geelani and Alam in Budgam Police Station.
