    NC MLC describes Hizb militant as ‘martyr'

    Tawi, Jan 03: In yet another controversy after insult to anthem, National Conference MLC Shauqat Hussain Ganai described in the Legislative Council the slain Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani as a “martyr”, triggering protests from the ruling PDP and BJP.

    During a debate on situation, Ganai said Burhan was a “martyr” and that he had “given up his life for the cause of Jammu and Kashmir”.

    His remark drew protests from BJP and PDP members.

    PDP member Firdos Tak said such words should not be spoken on the floor of House.

    However, Ganai stood by his remarks and added, “Kashmir is political problem and youth have taken to guns.”

    BJP MLC Surinder Ambardar also asked Ganai not to resort to such remarks on the floor of House.

    Later, speaking to reporters outside the Council, Ganai said “Burhan Wani is a martyr. (AGENCIES)
