Her hoisting act comes nearly 12 hours after a BJP Sarpanch Asif Ahmad was shot at and critically injured by militants at Qazigund in south Kashmir last night. The wounded BJP leader was later referred to Srinagar hospital by doctors of local hospital.
Today, August 5, marks one year of abrogation of special status that was granted under Article 370 of the Indian Constitution to Jammu and Kashmir. The BJP in the Union Territory has given a call for celebrations.
Ms Iltija, who is handling the Twitter account of her mother former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti presently detained under Public Safety Act (PSA), reacted sharply to hoisting the national flag.
In a tweet she said "With restrictions on the overwhelming majority in J&K who want to peacefully protest, police & admin organises curated photo ops of a select few hoisting national flag."
