Hizb terrorist’s brother hoists Tricolour in Jammu and Kashmir

Rayees Mattoo, the brother of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Javid Mattoo, raised the tricolour at his residence in the north Kashmir town of Sopore. The act was captured in a video where Rayees Mattoo could be seen waving the flag from a window.

Javid Mattoo, also known by aliases such as Faisal, Saqib, and Musaib, is an active member of the Hizbul Mujahideen terror group and has been listed as one of the top 10 targets by security agencies in the valley.

In the lead-up to Independence Day, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had called upon citizens to participate in the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ (Every Home a Flag) movement, which encouraged the widespread display of the national flag between August 13 and 15. Sunday witnessed a significant ‘Tiranga’ (Tricolour) rally in Srinagar, with the participation of the region’s Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha. During the event, Sinha emphasized the strong attachment of the region’s youth to the national flag, asserting that the people of Jammu and Kashmir hold the flag in high regard, just like any other part of the country.
