In his defence, Farooq has claimed that the flag was hoisted by his minor son unknowingly and that he had tried to burn the flag after learning about his son’s actions. The Dewas police had confiscated the flag, keeping in mind the law and order situation in the area. The cops are now investigating the source and purpose of putting up the flag at his house and are interrogating the family members.

The images of the Pakistani flag flying atop the house had gone viral on social media.

Under the said IPC section, a person found guilty can be fined or imprisoned for 3 years and more. The law can draw imprisonment of up to 5 years if the crime is committed at a place of worship.

Khalistani supporters remove tricolour, unfurl their flag

Amid Independence Day celebrations, two pro-Khalistani miscreants had recently hoisted a Khalistani flag on the top of the administrative building in Moga in Punjab.
