Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abudllah on Tuesday rubbished the waving of ISIS flag in the Valley as an act by "some idiots" which the media was "unfortunately" trying to highlight.

"You have to undertand that no ISIS group has been identified so far in the Valley. The flag of the ISIS was waved by some idiots which does not mean that ISIS has any presence in Kashmir. Unfortunately, some channels have tried to make an issue out of this and drag me into this as if we are not doing anything on this," Omar told reporters after meeting home minister Rajnath Singh here on Tuesday.

He said the flag was waved on three occasions by some youths for some time and in each matter a case was registered and some arrests have also been made.

"The tailor who made this flag has also been identified and action is being taken against him also. To say from media side that the issue is being ignored and no action is being taken by the state government is absolutely wrong. We do not make public our each step but to interpret it that we are not doing anything is not correct," Omar said.

A protestor was seen waving flag of terrorist organisation Islamic State of Iraq and Syria last week after Eid prayers whereas in July also similar waving of flag was seen in the Valley.
