Clashes erupt as protestors wave ISIS flags in Srinagar

Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Feb 17: Two days after army chief General Bipin Rawat warned tough action against those obstructing anti-militancy operations and waiving Pakistan and ISIS flags in Valley, the youth on Friday waved the green Pakistani flags and black ISIS flags during clashes in downtown Srinagar.
After conclusion of Friday congregational prayers, youth took to roads at Nowhatta in downtown Srinagar. Chanting pro-freedom, pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans, a group of masked youth waved Pakistani, ISIS and Lashkar-e-Toiba flags.
The youth clashed with the police and paramilitary personnel, who were deployed in strength in the area. The protesting youth pelted stones on the cops, who fired tear smoke shells and resorted to heavy baton charge to disperse them.
The clashes spread to the adjoining areas and at Rajouri Kadal, about half a kilometer from Nowhatta, masked youth waved the Pakistani and ISIS flags amidst anti-India and pro-freedom sloganeering.
"Down with India," they shouted and pelted stones on the police and CRPF men.
The security personnel fired tear smoke shells and pellets to disperse the stone pelting youth. The clashes continued for about an hour and later the youth disappeared from the scene and the normalcy was restored. Some youth sustained injuries in the police action.
According to locals and police sources, it was after quite some time that ISIS and Lashkar-e-Toiba flags were waved in downtown Srinagar.
The Pakistani flags are waved during protests every Friday in downtown Srinagar, they said.
The youth also clashed with the police and paramilitary personnel at volatile Sopore area in North Kashmir's Baramulla district.
Chanting anti-India and pro-Pakistan slogans, the youth tried to take out a protest march in Sopore this afternoon. As they were intercepted by police and paramilitary personnel, the youth pelted stones on the cops. The cops in retaliation fired tear smoke canisters to disperse the agitating youth. The ding dong battle between the two sides continued for some time.
The waving of ISIS and Pakistani flags by youth comes two days after Army Chief General Bipin Rawat warned that people creating hurdles during anti-militancy operations and displaying flags of Pakistan and ISIS in Jammu and Kashmir will be dealt as anti-nationals and will face "harsh" actions.
"We would now request the local population that people who have picked up arms, and they are the local boys, if they want to continue with the acts of militancy displaying flags of ISIS and Pakistan, then we will treat them as anti-national elements and go helter-skelter for them. They may survive today but we will get them tomorrow. Our relentless operations will continue," the Army Chief had told reporters in national capital on February 15 after laying wreath to four slain army men killed in twin encounters with militants in Kashmir.
