'Undivided' India is real terror, says banner in Islamabad
Show-cause notice issued by Islamabad District Magistrate to Metropolitan Corporation Islamabad, asking why it took them five hours to remove flex banners bearing an Indian parliamentarian’s remark about acquiring Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and Balochistan.
Islamabad, Aug 7 (IANS) In the wake of revocation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir by the Modi government, several controversial banners had appeared here in Pakistan with pictures and inflammatory messages, one of which said: 'Akhand Bharat Real Terror' (that roughly translates into: "The ideology of Undivided India is actual terrorism"), Dawn newspaper reported on Wednesday.
'Akhand Bharat' usually refers to the idea that all lands comprising India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Myanmar, Tibet, Bhutan and Bangladesh should be unified under one system of governance.
The police have removed these posters and banners containing anti-Pakistan statement from various areas of the capital city.

A few hours after the videos of these posters started doing rounds on social media sites police here arrested a suspect from Blue Area who is believed to have been responsible for having placed the banners.
Initial interrogation revealed that the suspect was into printing business, and had received orders for those banners from a resident of Gujranwala.
Police have sealed his printing press in Islamabad and shifted him to an undisclosed location for further interrogation.
