"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.
