People’s Democratic Party (PDP) legislator from Tral Mushtaq Ahmed Shah Monday said that slain commander Burhan Wani was the product of torture and harassment inflicted upon him and his family by previous National Conference-Congress Government of Jammu Kashmir.
“Everybody knows how NC tortured youth, lodged them in police cells and inflicted miseries upon the common people. The anti-youth policies pursued by NC were bound to give birth to people like Burhan Wani,” Shah said adding that PDP has no ill-will or grudge about Burhan or his family or people who mourn his death.
He said Burhan Wani was not a terrorist.
“People used to love him because of his great and pious character he was possessing. He was kind and pious and being the resident of Tral myself, I know how much people loved and respected him. The people’s mourning over his death can be justified,” he said.
“I appeal Jammu Kashmir Police and Security Agencies to stop nocturnal raid. I also request people to maintain peace. If people want to protest they need to remain peaceful because attacks on police posts and Army camps only lead to casualties,” he said. (CNS)
