According to some posts on social media, the JKLF supporters on Thursday also carried a 360 feet long ‘Azad Kashmir’ flag to join the sit-in which is set up across the border as Pakistani administration has stopped the infiltrators from crossing over.

Meanwhile, Pakistani infiltrators who have gathered at Jiskool in Muzaffarabad in PoK have demanded that the barricade be removed and they be allowed to infiltrate across the LoC and march towards Srinagar. On Sunday, the infiltrators had reached Jiskool near the LoC in Chakothi village shouting Azaadi slogans threatening to march towards Srinagar. The women have also participated in the ‘peaceful march’ where protestors are waiting to infiltrate into India.
Thousands of Pakistanis had announced that they will infiltrate India by crossing the LoC en masse to ‘liberate Kashmir’. However, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan had warned them not to do so lest it upset the narrative Pakistan is building against India.
Hundreds of Pakistanis have gathered near the LoC, in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) ready to infiltrate India for a ‘Freedom March’, two months after the Indian government abrogated Article 370 which gave separate status to erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir. Separatist group Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) leader Yasin Malik’s supporters have organised this ‘rally’ which is to start from PoK and cross the LoC.
