This is the most proud moment for India to see the flag fly high even from Lahore in Pakistan. Just last year, the Central government had passed order saying that every central educational institute MUST hoist the Indian Flag after there was anti National events conducted in JNU where few people had raised Pro Pakistan slogans.
Now, we see the tallest flag of India, standing in the Indo-Pakistan border. This will definitely be a burnol moment for the Pakistanis have always tried to attack India through proxy war. Watching Indian flag from Pakistan’s Lahore is the last thing Pakis would want to see!
This flag has now become a major tourists attraction.
