Accusing the Union government of not taking "stern action" against pro-Pakistani separatists, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) president Pravin Togadia said on Sunday that those who hoist Pakistani flags in Kashmir must be "shot."

"The way Pakistani flags are being hoisted in Kashmir is a matter of concern and now it is necessary to shoot people in their chest if they shout slogans in favour of Pakistan and hoist Pakistani flags," Togadia told reporters in Kutch district.

While answering a query about the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir, Togadia also criticised the BJP-led central government for not taking "stern action against pro-Pakistani separatists," and thus making them bolder with each passing day.

He was answering a query about the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir, where a seminar organised by the Hurriyat Conference was stalled by the state government for alleged anti-India activities.

Several top leaders including Syed Ali Shah Geelani have been placed under house arrest.
