Bihar is not Pakistan, yet a man in Nalanda district hoisted a Pakistani flag at the roof of his house. That was enough to send the locals and the police in a tizzy.
The flag was hoisted at the house of a man called Anwarul Haq in Kharadi locality in Biharsharif town. Reports say that Haq has been arrested.
According to this report, a district administration source said that the man “admitted to hoisting the flag” believing it would “help his wife give birth to a baby boy”.
The DSP Saifur Rehman said that the police is “investigating the matter now. Action in the case will take place soon.”
It is noteworthy that just a few days ago, a huge protest in support of Islamic preacher Zakir Naik was held in Patna. Pro-Pakistan slogans were raised during the protest. Mohammad Taufiq, a leader of a political outfit Popular Front of India, has been arrested by the police.
In January this year, a man in Pakistan had hoisted the Indian tricolour over his home because of his love for Virat Kohli. The man was arrested and was charged under a section that would send him to prison for 10 years if convicted.
