SRINAGAR: Hurriyat leader Asiya Andrabi on Friday hoisted the Pakistani flag and sang the country’s national anthem with a group of women celebrating Pakistan’s Independence Day in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
Indian media reported that the group of Dukhtaran-e-Millat activists led by Andrabi had gathered in Bachpora area on the outskirts of Srinagar. Video footage showed the women activists led by Andrabi singing the Pakistani national anthem as they waved the Pakistani flag.
Asiya Andrabi is the chief of Kashmir’s women’s separatist group Dukhtaran-e-Millat which is associated with the Hurriyat. In March, Indian authorities filed a treason case against Andrabi for hoisting the Pakistani flag and singing its national anthem in Srinagar on Pakistan Day.
Pro-independence Kashmiri activists hoist the Pakistani flag on August 14 every year to celebrate the independence of Pakistan from British rule in 1947.
