Social media has been abuzz with rumours since the past week as the clouds of uncertainty loom across the Kashmir skies.

On Sunday morning, a message was circulated across social media that the Kashmir’s state flag had been brought down from the civil secretariat in Kashmir’s capital city- Srinagar.

The Kashmiriyat photographer Firdous Qadri reached the civil secretariat and said that the rumours were baseless and false.

He clicked photographs which show that the Kashmir flag is intact along with the Indian Tri colour atop the building of civil secretariat.

A Police official also denied the rumours and said people must act cautiously and stop spreading the rumours.
