On the eve of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Goa for the BRICS summit, Chinese and Pakistani flags were waved by some protesters who took to the streets after Friday prayers in Baramulla. This is the first time that Chinese flags have been seen in the Valley protests since the killing of Hizbul militant Burhan Wani.

Soon after the Friday prayers ended at the idgah in Baramulla old town, a demonstration was staged and the flags were waved. Residents said the protesters, who were chanting slogans, had inscribed a message on one of the flags that sought help from China.

“Four or five Chinese flags were displayed by youths who had masked their faces during the protest that began soon after the Friday prayers,’’ a Baramulla resident said. Police used tear smoke shells to disperse the protesters after they began hurling stones at policemen on duty.

    Chinese and their Jewish backers are the greatest enemies of Islam. In China no young Muslim can wear a beard now and if they are found with one immediately their beard is shaved off!

                    Donot blame PD P and B J P for troubles in Kashmir.The militants and terrorists were nurtured by N C and Congress combine.Farook and Omar have overnight become saints to get some important positions in changed position of Kashmir .Before the present coalition of Kashmir , the corrupt governments of Kashmir helped antiIndia feelings among youth in Kashmir and in the process amed wealth from the money supplied by the central government for the development of Kashmir

                      When protesters waive stan and Chinese flags , it indicates that the Kashmir youth want to become slaves of stan and China to be engaged in terrorist activities to destabilize India and destroy communal harmony in secular India.It seems if hypothetically Kashmir becomes a separate country ,Hindus will be butchered and driven out of Kashmir like the Kashmir Pandits,followed by fanatic Hindu backlash against Muslims and possible horrible communal disturbances and exodus ,which will be a terrible situation to be helplessly watched by civilized world and leading to Third World War . Some argue that original Muslims came from Central Asia and settled in Indogangetic plain and can they now go back to their ancient land leaving Indian subcontinent. This means that after stan vacates their occupied portion now called stan we shall have lot of vacant land to be utilized by secular India.

                          One thing becomes evident that these separatist no more consider Pak of any worth and that is a positive take. lt;br/gt; lt;br/gt; China is a non-player. Any day China will trade off peace in Balochistan with India, if at all there is conflict ever.

                            Avoid Chinese products and buy made in India products. They are low quality. Think before you buy. They work against our country's interests. Resolve to buy made in India products.

                                Jammu and Kashmir was a Muslim majority state, and Pashtun tribesmen from stan invaded Jammu and Kashmir with the help of stan's government under the impression that Hari Singh would accede to India. Hari Singh appealed to India for help.[2] Although the Indian Prime Minister Nehru was ready to send troops, the Governor-General of India, Lord Mountbatten of Burma, advised the Maharaja to accede to India before India would send its troops. Hence, considering the emergent situation, the Maharaja signed an Instrument of Accession to the Dominion of India

                                            kashmir including POK belongs to Bharat; people who were born there can live there like any other Indian citizens with equal rights and responsibilities granted by Indian consution; if not, they can leave that place to the destiny of their choice; soon article 370 will be abolished and other Indian will settle down diluting terror completely
