JNU’s Umar Khalid compares Burhan Wani to Che Guevara


New Delhi: Sedition accused JNU student Umar Khalid has once again sparked a major controversy.

This time, the sedition accused has compared slain Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani to Che Guevara.Umar Khalid in a Facebook post wrote, “I don't care if I fall as long as someone else picks up my gun and keeps on shooting.” These were the words of Che Guevara, but could have just been ‪#‎BurhanWani‬'s too. Burhan wasn't scared of death, he was scared of a life lived in subjugation. He detested it. He lived a free man, died a free man. Doomed is the occupation! Indian state, how will you defeat a people who have defeated their own fears? Rest in Power, Burhaan! In complete solidarity with the people of ! (sic).”

JNU student Umar Khalid was arrested on the charge of sedition in February in connection with the controversial event and are out on bail.

Violence erupted spontaneously in south Kashmir districts of Anantnag, Pulwama, Shopian and Kulgam and later spread to other districts in the valley after security forces killed top Hizbul commander Burhan Wani and two of his associates in Bamdoora (Kokarnag) village of Anantnag district on Friday.
