Srinagar: Jhanvi Behal, the 15-year-old girl from Ludhiana was on Sunday stopped by the Jammu and Kashmir police from unfurling national flag in the city on Independence Day and was sent back from the Srinagar airport. 

The Ludhiana student had announced last month that she'll hoist national flag at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on Independence Day.    

“I would hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on August 15 because that is a place where the national flag was insulted. I challenge all those, including the separatists and the Pakistanis, to stop me if they can,” Jhanvi said.

The 15-year-old girl also used the opportunity to openly challenge Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Lashkar-e-Taiba leader Hafiz Saeed, saying that he must stop creating fear and divide among Kashmiris.

“I ask you (Saeed) to stop creating divide among Kashmiris, otherwise crores of other nationalists like me would stand against you,” she said.

Jhanvi, a student of DAV Public School, Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar, Ludhiana, is an active member of an NGO Raksha Jyoti Foundation and was honoured on Republic Day for her contribution in many projects including Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
