As the controversy surrounding Hurriyat (G)’s Wednesday rally is snowballing into a new ‘political crisis’, JK CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed Thursday said the law will take its own course.

Sayeed’s remarks came in backdrop of the call he reportedly received from Union Home Minister hours after the rally, instructing him: “Take strictest possible action against those allegedly involved in anti-national activities during a rally in Srinagar”.

Singh told Mufti that “the issue of national security cannot be compromised”.

Already, an FIR was registered last night against Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani, Masrat Alam Bhat and others for “provocative activities including hoisting of Pakistani flag”.

“If anyone has made a mistake,” Mufti said, “the law will do its work.”

Geelani, who returned in Kashmir after spending wintry months in New Delhi, was taken to his residence from the airport in a procession led by Alam.

Amid the controversy, Alam said he wasn’t indulging in unlawful activities. “We are only promoting the aspirations of the people of Kashmir,” he said.
