Acknowledged as the most beautiful place on earth whose beauty is blessed by the Gods is going through a curse since independence. The recent encounter episode of Burhan Wani has made the glory bleeding again.
Burhan Muzaffar Wani was a militant who joined Hizb-ul-Mujahideen in the year 2010 when he was just 15 years old. It is said that Burhan Wani along with his elder brother Khalid who was also shot dead last year, were on a motorcycle ride when they both were beaten brutally by Special Operations Group without any provocation. This horrible experience on his part made Wani to become a militant.
Last month Burhani Wani released a video on his social media account threatening J&K Police of more attacks in the future. The video claimed attacks on separate colonies for Sainiks and Kashmiri Pandits if they are set up in the valley. Termed as ‘Poster Boy’ by Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, Burhan Muzaffar Wani had scores of FIRs registered against him and was priced Rs. 10 Lakh on his head.
Burhani Wani was a bright student in his school days and was a cricket freak. As per the Police and Army, a ‘terrorist’ is killed who could have been a danger to our society but as far as other people are concerned who are showing grief on his death and are dismayed, a rebel has died who was desirous to free the reeling Kashmir. Nearly 30,000 people were present on his funeral.
Let us go to the history from where the Kashmir ecstasy became a misery!!
