New Delhi: 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.
“Main 15 august ko Lal chowk (Srinagar) pe tiranga phairaongi, kisi mein himmat hai to rok ke dikhaye,” Jhanvi said.
In a video shared by a news agency, Jahnvi Behal is heard saying that she will hoist the tricolor at Lal Chowk where students and people had insulted the national flag of India by hoisting Pakistan’s flag. "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," Behal told a news agency.
"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.
