Jhanvi Behal, the 15-year-old girl from Ludhiana, who made it to the headlines after challenging JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar to a debate on freedom of speech and expression, has now said she would hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on the occasion of Independence Day.

“I had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking him to allow all his MPs to hoist the national flag in their respective constituencies. He accepted my request and I am happy about that. Only a ‘best’ Prime Minister like him could have done that,” Bahal told ANI.

“I would hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on August 15 because that is a place where the national flag was insulted. I challenge all those, including the separatists and the Pakistanis, to stop me if they can,” she added.

The 15-year-old girl also used the opportunity to openly challenge Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Lashkar-e-Taiba leader Hafiz Saeed, saying that he must stop creating fear and divide among Kashmiris.

“I ask you (Saeed) to stop creating divide among Kashmiris, otherwise crores of other nationalists like me would stand against you,” she said.

Jhanvi, a student of DAV Public School, Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar, Ludhiana, is an active member of an NGO Raksha Jyoti Foundation and was honoured on Republic Day for her contribution in many projects including Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

In the past, in an open challenge, the 15-year-old challenged JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar to meet her ‘wherever and whenever’ for the debate. “It is very easy to criticise someone while sitting at home. Kanhaiya should concentrate on working like PM Modi,” Jhanvi had said.

“Whatever Kanhaiya ji said against PM Modi is completely wrong and unacceptable. It would have been better if he had spoken against those ‘Deshdrohis’ who raised anti-national slogans rather than PM Modi,” Jhanvi had told ANI.

Jhanvi has raised several public issues in the past. Recently, she had filed a writ in the Punjab and Haryana high court against adult movies and porn content on the social networking sites.

            Oh god how much hatred these so called Natraj and may be same guy Harsh are spreading. This girl didn't do or say anything that is offensive. Yet comparing her with others, blaming Sangh clearly says that this forum has been hijacked by ISI and Dawood. Hope I.E. pays attention and check their IP addresses and make sure these terrorists are not allowed free use of this forum.

            This is the beauty of Hindu majority India. In spite of you Muslims divided India and you got your homeland, we still continue to give equal or more rights to Muslims in India. You as a stani also have been given right to come to our boards and use your freedom of expression. Now can you start giving the same equal treatments to minority Christian Hindus Buddhists Jews etc in your own Islamic stan and other Muslim countries instead of butchering minorities like Hindus and Christians?
