‘Uri attack carried out by Kashmiri militants, and not Pakistani militants’: slain commander Burhan’s father
Patna: Muzaffar Wani, the father of slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani whose killing triggered a cycle of violence in the Kashmir valley denies the Pakistan terrorists were involved in the daring attack at Uri army base in Kashmir last week.
Instead, he claims this could be handiwork of “Kashmir militants”—a move reminding Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s similar claim.
“How can it be Pakistan? Whoever entered Kashmir after becoming a militant is a Kashmiri. Even a Muslim from Hindustan can come. It could even be an attack by Kashmiri militants,” slain militant’s father told the prominent Indian The Economic Times in an interview.
He also supported the speech of the Pak premier at the UN saying he liked everything that Sharif spoke. “When the problem of Kashmir will be solved, India will realize Wani was a freedom fighter,” slain commander’s father told the ET, likening his son to a “freedom fighter like Bhagat Singh”.
He claimed more such attacks would follow until Kashmir problem was solved.
He also mocked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s peace initiative in Kashmir. “More than 100 people have been killed in Kashmir in the last two months. He has not shown any grief. He only expressed grief over the killing of soldiers,” dead militant’s teacher father alleged.
According to him, his slain militant son wanted to join Indian army while he was young. “He (Burhan) had a strong liking for camouflage outfits,” slain militant’s father was quoted as telling the paper.
