Pak Flag Waving in Kashmir: Masrat Alam placed Under House Arrest

Srinagar, April 17: Under pressure, the Jammu and Kashmir police arrested the separatist leader Masrat Alam for waving Pakistan flag in Kashmir and shouting anti-India slogans at a rally while welcoming the Hurryat leader Syed Ali Geelani to Srinagar. However, this was not complete arrest. He was placed under house arrest on Thursday ahead of a rally in Tral.

The J&K government made it clear that the law will take its course of action against Masrat after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh asked the chief minister Mufti to take strong action against the pro-Pak leader.

On Wednesday, Masrat was booked under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for uniting youth against India and waving Pakistan flag in Kashmir.

Reacting to his arrest, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today questioned the move of the government. He took to his Twitter and asked under which sections the hardliner had been arrested.

This sounded ridiculous. The leader proved that the dignity of the country is not important for the party. Apart from criticising the government move against Masrat, he would have pressed the government to punish the traitor under the law.
