'As if we didn't honour flag before': Mehbooba Mufti

Srinagar/UNI: Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), saying they have not just politicised the Indian flag but also hijacked it as if Indians didn’t honour the flag before.

She said this in the wake of the “Har Ghar Tirnaga” campaign.

“Indian flag isn’t a mere flag but symbolises the struggle & sacrifices made by Indians including congress party to earn this freedom. But BJP hasn’t just politicised but also highjacked it as if Indians didn’t honour the flag before,” Mufti said in a tweet.

She alleged the BJP has lowered the prestige of the flag.

“In Kashmir, BJP has demeaned & lowered its prestige further by using all types of coercive measures to force people to purchase & hoist it,” she added.

Earlier, BJP's JK spokesman Altaf Thakur said the massive response to 'Har Ghar Tiranga' was a big slap on the face of those who opposed the move.

"Har Ghar Tiranga is no more just a directive, it has become a passion given the overwhelming response from people at the district level across Kashmir. Huge response (is) a big slap on the face of those who opposed the move," he said.

"Time is not far when none other than the people of Kashmir will hoist Tiranga atop houses of those who claimed no one will hold tri-colour if article 370 was rolled back. Kashmir (is) changing for sure."
