Showing a sympathetic attitude, Sena Leader Aaditya Thackeray had said that one needs to see the intent of the girl who held ‘Free Kashmir’ poster on the Sunday protest in Mumbai against the masked men’s attack in JNU campus.
"Apart from that incident (we need to) look at larger picture... we need to see her intent. Was it to remove internet blockade? If it was to free Kashmir from India, then it is wrong. Obviously everyone condemned it... not even other protesters supported it," the newly swornin Environment and Tourism Minister said.
Hundreds had gathered at the Gateway of India on Sunday night in what was described as a "spontaneous" protest against brutal attack in JawaharLal Nehru University when a masked mob, armed with iron rods and sledgehammers, attacked students and faculty members and left 34 people injured.
