The teenager said she took the decision after seeing Pakistani and ISIS flags being hoisted in Kashmir and the Indian flag is repeatedly humiliated.
“When our flag is disrespected then we sit at our homes and voice our opinion against such people. Why don’t we ever think to go there and hoist our flag if it is being disrespected there,” Merani told news agency ANI.
Merani said her family has fully supported her decision and that she don’t need anyone’s permission to go there.
“It is our Indian Soil and we don’t need any permission to go there. And if the army will not let me go there then I’ll go on a hunger strike and will request them to let me go there,” she said.
