Srinagar: As per reports in Kashmiri media, a Mumbai based political party Shiv Sena Hindustan (SSH) Thursday (Dec. 22) termed slain militant commander Burhan Wani as Martyr (Shaheed) and called the Jammu and Kashmir government a “terrorist” asking “what the PDP-BJP coalition achieved by killing innocents.’
Addressing journalists at Press Enclave here, SSH National Vice president Pandit Rajesh Kasari said he along with other party activists met people in Kashmir to have firsthand knowledge about ground reality.
According to Greater Kashmir (GK), Pandit Rajesh Kasari at several times repeated the term “Martyr” for Burhan Wani and for other civilians killed during 2016 summer unrest, saying “government must pay compensation of Rs 50 lakhs to each victim family.”
“On ground, the reality is different. Khalid Muzafar Wani (Brother of slain militant commander Burhan Wani) is a martyr. His brother Burhan Wani is also a martyr. I will say that all those killed during 2016 unrest are martyrs,” GK quotes Pandit Rajesh Kesari.
He added that both people and government agencies have clarified that Khalid Muzaffar was innocent. “The government has listed his name among innocents. Four lakh compensation have also been proposed for the victim family. The circumstances and government agencies suggest that an innocent was killed by the state government….Burhan Wani was forced to take up arms,” he said.
He said that a case should be registered against state government “for killing innocent people in Kashmir.”
“What state government wants to achieve by killing these innocents. Those who were killed are innocents. They are martyrs while state government is a terrorist,” he said.
He said that “wrong policies pursued by the state and central governments are the reasons for anti-India sentiments in Kashmir.”
“After his martyrdom of Burhan Wani, innocent people were maimed, blinded and killed. What government got by killing innocent people? Now the Chief Minister of the State is shedding crocodile tears. The fact is that government has let loose a reign of terror here in Kashmir,” he said.
“Eyeing on the Parliament elections, the state government is now claiming that it will conduct Panchayat elections. Panchayat elections drama is staged to win the votes from people in Parliament elections (By-polls),” he said.
He said that state government must be made accountable for its “all wrongs and killings.” “The government instead of improving situation in Kashmir has been adding fuel to worsen the situation by adopting wrong policies,” he said.
