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.

                        Cant understand why India despite claiming itself a 'superpower' fails to abide by the Un resolution on Kashmir. India should be encouraged by the likes of Usa where it is unlikely that any state is going to repudiate the union.

                          The expressions during the ceremony are quite intimidating and repulsive, it serves no purpose to promote!

                                        You brain dead moron , read the UN charter before you comment. The first condition is complete removal of stani army from the stan occupied Kashmir and then do plebicide. So for plebicide you completely remove army and its special operations units like Taliban , JEM , JED , LET and other militant outfits and then UN observers would come in few thousands and do the plebicide fairly where you would definately loose POK and India would get Jammu and Kashmir as those kashmiris who were removed by force would also allowed to vote.scroll on internet and it is clearly written. stan has not fulfilled the first requirement.

                                            It is in their quran. They are tought in mosques to stone woman. In Kashmir they go to mosques and come out throwing stones at security forces.. that is the prayer they learn from stone age ugly looking pig faced mulla and their hate manual.
