Pakistani Police crackdown against Azadi Marchers for raising Taliban flag in capital Islamabad
*ISLAMABAD: A number of Azadi March participants were seen hoisting Taliban flags, during their protest in Islamabad prompting authorities to make arrests.*
As per details, a number of Azadi Marchers were seen waving Taliban flags in the anti-government protest in Islamabad.
Taking notice of the news item aired on ARY News, the police arrested scores of the protesters for hoisting the Taliban flags in Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam’s march. The arrests were also confirmed by the deputy commissioner Islamabad.
“The administration of the Azadi March has also distanced itself from the people, who hoisted Taliban flags in the protest”, the deputy commissioner said.
According to the defense analysts, hoisting such flags in the JUI-F’s Azadi March, can put a negative impact on the improving image of Pakistan.
On the other hand, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry link asked Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman’s relation with Baitullah and Hakeemullah Mehsud. He said Pakistan desires for peace in Afghanistan and hoisting Taliban flags in Azadi March are beyond his understanding.
