- A group of unidentified men forcibly hoisted the Indian tricolour at the Jammu office of the Peoples Democratic Party
(Karachi) Peoples Democratic Party's (PDP) office in Jammu has been attacked by a mob, India's The Print reported.
The media outlet stated that a group of unidentified men forcibly hoisted the Indian tricolour at the Jammu office of the Peoples Democratic Party on Saturday. The incident took place a day after party chief Mehbooba Mufti said she will not unfurl the national flag until she brings back the flag of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The party’s former MLA, Firdous Tak, and another leader got into an argument with the men, following which the police dispersed the people. The tricolour was also removed by the police, it stated.
Tak tweeted saying that “few right wingers” attacked him and another leader Parvez Waffa who were present at the office. He said the attack was clearly a reaction to Mehbooba’s comment.
The PDP chief’s remark has drawn criticism from both state units of the BJP and Congress, which viewed it as “intolerable”.
