SRINAGAR, Dec 6: Hindu Right Wing organization Shiv Sena’s flag hoisting attempt at the historic Lal Chowk was foiled after police took scores of its activists into preventive custody here early Wednesday morning.
Witnesses said scores of the right wing activists from Shiv Sena unit of Jammu had arrived in the valley to hoist Indian tricolor at historic Ghanta Ghar (clock tower), however their plans failed the moment police took all of them into preventive custody.
A senior police official said the activists had planned to hoist tricolor at Ghanta Ghar to counter N.C President Dr Farooq Abdullah’s statement in which he dared the government to hoist flag in Lal Chowk before unfurling same in Muzaffarabad.
“We had inputs that some activists will be arriving in Kashmir to unfurl the tricolor at Lal Chowk. However, all of them were detained before they could execute their plans into reality,” an official said.
He said the activists, numbering around eight, had arrived in Kashmir yesterday and were detained at police station Kothibagh before sending them back to Jammu. The step, he said, was taken as a precautionary measure to avoid uncertainty.
Meanwhile, a Shiv Sainik asked former Chief Minister, Farooq Abdullah to secure the future of educated but unemployed youth in Kashmir if he wants to ensure his return in power again.
“He is a person of double standards. Rather than making provocative statements and praising separatists, he should work for the well being of Kashmiri educated unemployed youth,” said the activists.
