Protesters burn Indian flag in Kashmir, chanted slogans ‘Go India Go back’

MUZAFFARABAD:  Hundreds of people in Kashmir gathered together and launch a protest against India and also burnt Indian flag in India-held Kashmir.

Refugees from Indian-held Kashmir rallied headed by “Pasban-e-Hurriyat” (Protectors of Freedom) in Muzaffarabad, the capital of the Pakistani sector.

Many children also took part, displaying placards reading: “Go India Go back (from Kashmir)” and “Release Kashmiri leaders”.

Police in the Indian sector shot dead a 16-year-old boy on Saturday during a demonstration on the outskirts of its main city Srinagar, as a separatist strike shut down the Himalayan region on a second day of violent clashes.

Shops, businesses and schools remained shut on Saturday across several towns in the state in response to a strike led by top separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani against what he called “state terrorism” and “poisonous propaganda” by Indian media.

Authorities have put all top separatist leaders under house arrest to prevent them from leading protests.

On Friday 30 people, mainly police officers, were injured as pro-Pakistan demonstrators in Srinagar set fire to an Indian flag and hurled rocks at them during a protest at the arrest of another separatist leader.
