Mehak Mirza Prabhu, identified as the lady seen holding the ‘Free Kashmir’ placard has turned out to be a useful asset for Pakistan, as DGISPR of the terror state has shared an article which reports on the fact that the lady was demanding a “free Kashmir” during a protest supposedly in solidarity of JNU and against the violence which broke out in the central university on Sunday.
The presence of “Free Kashmir” poster at the protest made many believe that this was not merely a students’ protest against the JNU violence, but rather a vulgar display of the piled up frustration against the Modi government over the past few months among leftists which had not found expression due to the overwhelming support which India gave to the abrogation of article 370 and the Ram Mandir verdict.
Taking advantage of such secessionists within, Asif Ghafoor, DG-ISPR shared a TOI article which reported on Mehak carrying the placard. He also added that this was the ‘beginning of the end’ for India and that ‘Kashmir is Pakistan’. Ghafoor leads the PR wing of Pakistan’s ISI to disseminate anti-India propaganda across the world.

It is a crying shame that irresponsible and desperate attempts by Indian youth to gain social mileage are now being used by India’s top enemy to further their propaganda worldwide. The question is, why was a placard regarding Kashmir brought up in a solidarity protest aimed at supporting leftist goons of JNU? There are certainly rotten ulterior motives which have been plaguing the country since the anti-CAA protests began. Incidentally, this placard was raised in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Maharashtra, as we know, is now governed by the Shiv Sena Chief Minister, and for such buffoonery to go unchecked in Sena’s rule is a reflection of the recent departure which the erstwhile saffron party has had from Hindutva and nationalism, after joining hands with the Congress and NCP.
Mehak has now issued an apology for her shocking display of secessionism and has tried to downplay her intended messaging due to the massive outrage against her. “The picture created by entire social media came as an absolute shock to me. Placard meant freedom to express themselves, freedom from the internet lockdown which many people have been voicing for. I was voicing my solidarity for basic constitutional right,” she said. She added, “If by being naive in understanding the impact it would have, and in the process create this stir. I apologise.”
Kanhaiya Kumar and his colleagues, after having been caught shouting Aazadi slogans too had employed a similar tactic. They had claimed that he was demanding freedom from poverty, starvation and casteism. Of course, nobody bought these excuses, except a few braindead comrades across India. Even now, Mehak has only exposed herself, while also helping Pakistan further its Kashmiri narrative.
