Srinagar: A 26-year-old Kashmiri youth was arrested by Haryana police on Saturday for uploading a video of a Pakistani leader’s speech, Indian Express reported.
The video clip he has uploaded on his WhatsApp status is said to be about ‘Kashmir and militancy’, the report says.
The youth, Mohammad Kazafi, hails from Dildaar village of Kupwara district in North Kashmir. He works as a security guard at a hotel on Morni Road.
He was booked under non-bailable Section 153-A of the Indian Penal Code. The FIR was filed by Sukhdeep Singh, 28, a resident of Nada village at Chandimandir, Panchkula.
In the FIR, he has alleged that a WhatsApp status shared by the accused showed “a Pakistani leader giving a speech that talks of Kashmir’s independence, praises Kashmiri terrorist Burhan (Wani) and insults the Indian Army.”
“This may lead to a situation of conflict in society and is arising the feeling of enmity which is adversely affecting the integrity of the country,” the FIR adds.
“We had received a complaint last night and arrested the accused within hours. The complainant has a tea stall outside Nada Sahib gurdwara where the accused used to visit. Both had become friends over time,” said Inspector Deepak Kumar, SHO of Chandimandir police station.
“We produced him in court today from where he was sent to judicial custody,” he added.
