Srinagar, May 1: In another act of defiance, separatists once again raised Pakistani flags in Kashmir at a rally held by separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Friday, May 1.
This is the second such incident in a month. The rally held in Tral was marked by crowds waving Pakistani flags and raised ant-India slogans.
Pakistani flags were raised at a rally organised in Srinagar by Geelani in April.
At the rally, hardline Hurriyat leader Geelani demanded that the duration of the Amarnath Yatra be reduced to a month.

Omar hits out at BJP
National Conference leader Omar Abdullah hit out at BJP for maintaining silence over waving of Pakistani flags during a rally by separatists in Kashmir.
"Imagine what @BJP4India would have said if as CM I'd been sitting in Bombay (Mumbai) surrounded by movie stars while Pak flags are waved in Kashmir," Omar wrote on twitter.
The former Chief Minister was referring to the incident with Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed meeting Bollywood stars in Mumbai yesterday for promoting shooting of movies in the Valley.
