The Jammu and Kashmir High Court today stayed its previous order to allow the J&K State and National flag to be hoisted on the State's official buildings and vehicles. A two-judge bench on Friday stayed the earlier order passed by J&K High Court on December 27.

After the court order, the former J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah went on Twitter and said: Here's what I'll say - so long as J&K is a part of India the two flags will continue to fly & we'll take pride in it.

"Why is only J&K expected to respect the terms of accession while the rest of the country can disregard them with impunity?" Omar Tweeted.

Omar Abdullah exclusively responded to NewsX and said, “As long as J&K is part of India, two flags will fly. We will take pride in two flags.”




National Conference took a stand after the Court’s order and said the J&K flag is a constitutional entity. Soon after the court's judgment, several Pakistani agents and separatists protested against the order, waved Pakistani and ISIS flags, raised anti-India slogans and Hafiz Saeed posters.
