    Waving of Pakistani flags: Separatist leader Masarat Alam Bhat arrested



    SRINAGAR/NEW DELHI: Buckling under pressure from alliance partner BJP, the PDP-led government in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday arrested separatist leader Masarat Alam Bhat in connection with the raising of Pakistani flags during a rally here on Wednesday.

    "Bhat has been arrested in the case registered in police station Budgam in connection with the provocative actions during the rally on Wednesday," a senior police officer said.

    The 45-year-old hardline separatist leader, who was placed under house arrest late on Thursday night, was arrested from his home in Habbakadal area of the city early this morning and taken to police station Shaheed Gunj, the officer said.

    As he was being led away by police, Bhat said his arrest was nothing new as "Jammu and Kashmir is being ruled on the might of power."

    "Raising of Pakistani flags and chanting pro-freedom slogans is nothing new in Jammu and Kashmir. It has been happening since 1947," he said.


    Talking to Times Now about Masarat Alam's arrest, Jitendra Singh, MoS PMO, said: "There's no compromise on any account, we are very clear on how such people have to be treated."

    "The Centre is keeping a close watch on the situation," Jitendra Singh said.

    "This is not a place where Pakistani flags or pro-Pakistan slogans are going to be accepted," BJP leader Nalin Kohli said on Masarat Alam's arrest.

    Why was he released in the first place. Geelani will now have to eat humble pie.

    J&K debacle is going to cost BJP nation-wide dearly. They should have quit the alliance at least a month ago. But the state BJP is too power hungry and still clinging to it by nails! Why should people in Bengal or Assam vote for BJP now, seeing the example that state level of BJP is anything but what Modi projects?

    I don't know what the central leaders of BJP thinking about? Pull out of the alliance before it is so late that next time around you would be hard pressed to get support even in Jammu or Ladakh.
