Dukhtaran-i-Millat Chairperson Syeda Asiya Andrabi Wednesday said she did not hoist Pakistani flag on Indian soil but on the soil of Jammu and Kashmir which is a disputed territory and not a part of India. She was reacting after police booked her for unfurling Pakistani flag on the eve of Pakistan Day on March 23.
“From last 35 years we have been hoisting Pakistan Flag in India. This time the difference was that instead of unfurling it in Pakistan embassy in New Delhi, we hoisted on our own soil in Kashmir. Let me make it clear that Jammu and Kashmir is my own land and it is not the part of India and for that reason I have not committed any crime,” Asiya Andrabi told CNS adding that she was booked by police on the behest of Indian media under section 13A of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
“Indian biased news channels blew the issue of flag hoisting out of proportion and all these channels put a pressure on police to book me. Instead of showing the ‘news’, these Indian channels are acting as judge for Kashmiri people and are directing the Indian police and authorities, what to do and what not to do,” she said and added that she would continue to hoist the Pakistani flag on Kashmir soil and will not abandon the practice under pressure either from Indian media or authorities.
