Once hotbed of stone pelting, Baramulla hoists 1.8 lakh tricolors

Early Times Report

Baramulla, Aug 18: Once known as the hotbed of stone-pelting, the Baramulla district in north Kashmir has hoisted over 1.7 lakh tricolors in the recent past showing the love towards the nation.
Official sources said as a part of the Aazadi Ka Amrut Mohatsava, the north Kashmir district “created history” by hoisting the big number of tricolors at a number of events held in the last few weeks.
The officials said it was for the first time in the last over seven decades that such a big number of tricolors were hoisted in the north Kashmir district.
The officials said whereas the major number of tricolors were hoisted on the Independence Day itself, prior to it the national flags were hoisted during the Tiranga rallies.
Baramulla is known as the district which had resisted the Pakistani raiders the most in 1947 to stand with the Indian forces.
It was reliably learnt that Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha was personally monitoring the Tiranga wave in Kashmir. On August 13, Sinha had visited Baramulla to pay homage to Maqbool Sherwani and the soldiers of the Sikh Regiment saying that they had died saving the lives of thousands of Kashmiris and foiled the invasion of Pakistan Army regulars and tribal raiders.
The LG had laid a wreath at Sikh War Memorial and paid tributes to Maqbool Sherwani (known as the Lion of Baramulla) at Maqbool Memorial Sherwani Hall Baramulla. He also honoured the family of Maqbool Sherwani, war veterans and kin of the freedom fighters during the visit.
In October 1947, Sherwani had fought the barbaric atrocities perpetrated by the Pakistani government and its Army and protected the pride of the tricolour.
The LG had also recalled the Sikh soldiers led by Lt Colonel Diwan Ranjit Rai and said, “They had set a unique example of dedication, valour, and devotion to duty in protecting every inch of the land of J&K.”
Amid such a role for the nation in 1947, the Baramulla blooms with tricolors.
