Kashmiri Separatists waved Pakistani flags at a political gathering in Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian-occupied Kashmir.
After a gap of five years, Jammu and Kashmir Government on Wednesday allowed Kashmir separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani to hold a public rally in the outskirts of Srinagar city where his supporters including Masarat Alam, released from jail in last month, raised pro-Pakistan slogans and others waved Pakistani flags.
Musarrat Alam waved a Pakistani flag to greet Syed Ali Shah Geelani at the rally, reported the Indian media. Thousands of Kashmiris attended the rally in the restive capital of Indian-occupied Kashmir, which was held as a show of strength to welcome Geelani on his return from New Delhi.
