Hardline Hurriyat Conference Geelani leader also warned the Central government at the rally, and demanded that duration of the Hindu pilgrimage Amarnath Yatra be restricted to one month.

Last month too, Pakistani flags were raised at a rally organised in Srinagar by Geelani. Separatist leader Masarat Alam, who was released from jail in March, was present at the rally where anti-India slogans were raised.
Following a hue and cry, Alam was later detained and subsequently arrested under the Public Safety Act under which the separatist leader could be jailed for at least two years.
The Centre had categorically stated that waving of Pakistani flags or raising of anti-India slogans will not be allowed under any circumstances.Under pressure, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had also said that there was no place for such acts.
