PCB pays tribute to killed Mujahideen militant commander

This news would certainly be a shocking one for the Indians! The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Saturday paid tribute to slain Hizbul Mujahideen Commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani, who was killed in a gunfight with the Indian Armed Forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

In a tweet, the cricketing body stated, “Kashmiri mujahid Burhan bhai martyred today* allah accept his shahadat.”

This controversial statement from the PCB comes right after Indian Armed Forces termed this encounter as a huge success, wherein they killed Wani, Sartaj Ahmed and one other militant in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir.

But after PCB’s latest conundrum, any possibility of India-Pakistan cricketing ties to revamp in near future will be left in the vast wilderness.

However, All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani and Separatist leader Asiya Andrabi have called for a complete statewide shutdown on Saturday and even appealed to the people to participate in Wani’s funeral prayers in large numbers.

Geelani also appealed to the people to hold funeral prayers in absentia for Wani at their respective places who could not reach Tral.

The 22-year-old Internet-savvy Kashmiri militant was reportedly a resident of Dadsara village in south Kashmir’s Tral area. He had left home in 2010-days before he was to take the Class 10 examination to join the region’s front-line indigenous militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen.

He soon rose to become its district commander and even found his name on the list of most wanted militants.

Wani featured in videos circulated on Facebook and WhatsApp aimed at recruiting young Kashmiri men for terror.

Last month, Wani released a video warning of attacks on separate colonies for Sainiks and Kashmiri Pandits if they are set up in the Valley.

The major part of the video message, however, was directed at the Jammu and Kashmir Police warning them of more attacks.

Reportedly, there was a Rs.10 lakh reward for information leading to his arrest.
