"Yes, I hoisted Pakistan flag & sung its national anthem on Pak day," Asiya Andrabi was quoted by Times Now report as saying.

She further said that whatever she did was on Jammu and Kashmir's soil and not on Indian soil and Jammu and Kashmir is my land.


The BJP which is in coalition with PDP in the state has demanded for her arrest but the PDP has not opened its cards over the same.

A day after media reports showed Andrabi hoisting Pakistan flag on its national day in Srinagar, an FIR was registered against her under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.

"A case has been registered against Andrabi at Nowhatta Police station under Section 13 of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act," a police officer said on Wednesday.

Asiya heads women's wing of Dukhtaran-e-Millat which is associated with the Hurriyat. She is one of the most prominent separatist leaders in the Valley. She is alleged to have not only unfurled the Pakistani flag but also sang its national anthem along with some of her supporters.

Meanwhile in Delhi, the controversy that erupted after General VK Singh attended the Pak's National Day celebration is not dying down in New Delhi.

Singh on Tuesday later gave a clarification on the same.

"Given that a controversy has erupted around this issue, I feel that it is important for me to clarify that my tweets were directed only towards those sections of the media that have questioned the intent of my government and also its stance on countering Pakistan-sponsored terror.
