Displaying ISIS flags not a criminal act in Kashmir: Omar Abdullah

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association)

Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah Tuesday said all the local boys who displayed ISIS flags in recent days in Srinagar have been identified, but none of them has been found to be involved in militancy.

Speaking to media on the sidelines of the Police Commemoration Day here Tuesday, Abdullah said: “All the boys who displayed the ISIS flags in the city have been identified and cases have been registered against them.”

“None of them has been found involved in militancy so far. Now what are the reasons for them to display such flags would be established by the inquiry going on in these cases.”

A media flutter was created here during the last few months because some masked youths displayed the flags of the terror outfit ISIS that is active in Iraq and Syria.

It must be mentioned that ISIS cadres have now renamed their group as “fighters of the Islamic State”.
