Kashmiri Pandit woman who chanted patriotic slogans at Srinagar's Lal Chowk on Independence Day justifies her act!
Amid shutdown in Kashmir, a video of a brave Kashmiri Pandit woman raising pro-India slogans at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on the occasion of India's 71st Independence Day, has gone viral on social networking sites.

In the 45-second YouTube video clip, Sunita Arora can be seen raising slogans – "Bharat Mata ki Jai" and "Vande Matram".

In the video, she is also seen urging the 20 odd security personnel surrounding her to raise pro-India slogans along with her. Showing her vigorous support and feeling of patriotism towards India, Sunita is heard saying, "Aap bhi Bharat ke hain. Bharat Mata ki Jay bolna hamara farz hai." (You are also from India. Chanting Bharat Mata ki Jai is our duty.)

As per a report of Rising Kashmir, Station House Officer Abdul Rashid said that Sunita was stopped from hoisting the tricolor due to the prevalent law and order scenario and that she was later let go.

"Police had brought her to TRC where we were hoisting the tricolor thinking that she was from BJP but then she herself said she doesn't belong to any party," Rising Kashmir quoted BJP leader Altaf Thakur as saying.

Arora chose the same spot at Lal Chowk for sloganeering where earlier in the day around 250 activists of BJP's youth wing were stopped from hoisting the tri-colour during 'Tiranga yatra'. Later, they were detained by the police in this regard.

In a recent interview published on YouTube, Sunita said, "I was predetermined to raise patriotic slogans at Lal Chowk and hoist the national flag on the same spot."

Arora also added that she wanted to convey a stern message to the "misguided youth" to return to the mainstream. Feeling proud for chanting pro-India slogans, the lady said that she had to pass through over a dozen security check points to reach the spot with the national flag hidden in her purse.
