SRINAGAR: A group of men unfurled ISIS flags amid pro-freedom and anti-India sloganeering outside the Jamia Masjid in Nowhatta in downtown Srinagar after Friday prayers, according to eyewitnesses. “The protesters were holding Islamic State flags and one of them waved it after climbing the mosque’s gate,” an eyewitness said.

“... This is something which merits the highest concern of all security agencies and let me tell you that it is getting the attention of all the security agencies,” he had said. “Certainly, we are watching and indeed closely monitoring the situation as it were. It merits and it is getting the highest concern,” he added.
