ISLAMABAD, May 25 (APP): Indian Army Colonel in IOK asks Journalists to leave the function

 

An Indian army officer asked two journalists to leave an event for not standing up when the Indian national anthem was played and the Indian flag was unfurled.

 

According to KMS, the anthem was played during the passing out parade of recruits at the Rangreth centre of Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry Regiment.

 

"Army had invited us to cover the event, not to participate in it. When the Indian anthem was played, I was jotting down notes for my story. After the anthem finished, one Colonel Burn came up to us and said `all people here stood up for the anthem and the flag except you. We don't need people like you here so leave'," said Junaid Bazaz.

 

The other journalist who was asked to leave was a correspondent of Rising Kashmir.
