In what appears to be an intentional act to humiliate the Indian Army and the nationalists, some anti-nationals painted the Indian national flag on a Friday market road in Srinagar.
Photographs of the tricolour on the road went viral when they were shared on social media.
The pictures show people walking over the flag without realizing the insult it is causing.
A user who posted the pictures said that the flag was painted on the Friday market road which located not far from NIT-Srinagar.

Reacting to the tweet, Major Gaurav Arya, a veteran of the Indian Army, requested the Prime Minister to allow the Indian Army to bring order in Srinagar.

Unlike other parts of Kashmir, the Indian Army is not deployed in Srinagar. The Jammu and Kashmir capital is guarded by the state police and paramilitary forces.
