Radical women’s outfit Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) headed by Asiya Andrabi today unfurled Pakistan’s flag and sang its national anthem on the neighbouring country’s Independence Day. A group of DeM activists had gathered in Bachpora area on the outskirts of the city. In past a controversy had erupted following the media reports claiming that Andrabi had hoisted flag of Pakistan and sung its national anthem on March 23. In March then a case was registered against Andrabi at Nowhatta Police station under Section 13 of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. Separatist activists have been hoisting Pakistani flags on August 14 for more than two decades. In the early days of militancy in Kashmir during 1990s, militant groups like Hizbul Mujahideen would hold full-fledged parades to mark this day.
