Anti-India slogans were raised from Pakistani side during the evening retreat ceremony at the Attari-Wagah border here, prompting BSF to register a protest with the Pak Rangers.

People seated in viewers gallery on the Pakistani side raised anti-India slogans at least for ten minutes, Indian officials posted at the Attari border said. Officials said that some stones were also thrown from Pakistani side a few minutes before the beginning of the retreat ceremony. Officials said BSF had a flag meeting with the Pakistani Rangers after the 50 minute ceremony ended.

“There was sloganeering and unruly conduct by the spectators from the Pakistani side. There were some reports about pelting of stones also … We called a flag meeting with the Rangers and told them about the issue,” a senior BSF official said.

The situation during the flag lowering ceremony was apparently quite tense. The retreat ceremony is held every evening where both the sides lower their national flags and shut the gates in the presence of the public.

Tension is running high between the two countries following the terror attack on an Army camp in Uri and subsequent surgical strikes on terror launch pads by India in PoK.

    Close the border if stan cannot control its home crowd, I just do not understand why Wagah border needs to remain open? It will affect some trade, I think stan has more to loose than India in this border closings. If the enemies of India are identified as people of stan, then there is no reason to be friendly.

    It is high time we call off this retreat ceremony at Wagha -Attari border. We should have only with friends these types of activities and not with enemies. If allowed suddenly one evening many terrorists will emble the border as spectators and suddenly will starting shooting the BSF Jawans who perform these drill at then will cross the border and can play havoc in our territory. It is better we mine the entire border with pak to prevent the movements of Terrorists. The stanis are savages and we should treat them like that only. Jai Hind.
