KOHALA: In a dignified ceremony held at the entry point of Azad Kashmir in Kohala, the flags of Pakistan and Azad Kashmir were proudly hoisted. A smartly turned-out contingent of the Pakistan Army presented a salute and raised the national flags while national anthems played in the background. Brigadier Salahuddin and Colonel Ahmed Khan were the chief guests of the flag hoisting ceremony.

Young leader of the Muslim Conference, Raja Saqib Majeed, along with his team, participated in the event and addressed public concerns. A large number of people from both Azad Kashmir and the Hazara division also attended the ceremony.

This event follows recent protests in Azad Kashmir regarding the cost of flour and electricity bills, during which reports surfaced of the flag being removed. The Deputy Commissioner of Muzaffarabad and the administration clarified that the flag had been taken down by the administration itself, promising to replace it with new Pakistan and Azad Kashmir flags in a ceremonious manner.

The ceremony at the confluence of Circle Bakote district Abbottabad and Azad Kashmir in Kohala demonstrated national and communal solidarity. Residents of Azad Kashmir and Circle Bakote delivered a clear message to the country’s enemies: nothing in the world can split the brothers of Azad Kashmir and Pakistan.
