‘The boy is mentally ill !’: Hasmtullah’s father claims
Hasmtullah’s father and sarpanch Mohammed Junaid claimed that his son is mentally ill and is being treated. (How can a mentally ill person burn only India’s National Flag and that too on Independence Day? Why doesn’t he burn Pakistan’s flag? Hasmtullah’s father should also be prosecuted for trying to fool people in this manner. – Editor)
