Come clean on PDP MLA's 'militants are martyrs' remark:Congress to BJP

Bennie Garza | 13 January, 2018, 01:50

"It is a collective failure", Mir argued.

Mir on Thursday said that Kashmiri militants, who are killed in encounters are "martyrs".

"We should not celebrate the killings of militants, it is our collective failure, we feel sad when our security forces are martyred as well, we should sympathise with parents of security jawans and with parents of militants as well", the Wachi MLA said outside the state Assembly.

Despite his apparent sympathy for the Kashmiri militants, Mir - who represents the Shopian district, a hotbed for terrorist activities - himself had been a target of a militant activity recently. The PDP leader further asked the government to solve the Kashmir issue by holding dialogue with separatists and militants. If you have noticed we haven't put up a paywall unlike many news organisations, - as we want to keep our journalism open.

On recent attack on his (MLA) House, he said, "this was due to ideological difference".

Speaking to members of the press, Pir said that many militants active in the state are minors and are not aware of the consequences of their action.

His comments were denounced by the BJP, which partners the PDP or People's Democratic Party in Kashmir.

The Legislator said, "they are our own children".

Former minister and National Conference MLA, Ali Mohammad Sagar, said that it only highlights the "double standards" of the PDP. The PDP is in alliance with the BJP (in Jammu and Kashmir). These are questions the BJP needs to answer. The PDP MLA added that it does not matter that under what circumstances the people were killed if they hailed from Kashmir, they are "martyrs".

Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi was quoted by DNA as saying, "Terrorists and separatists are enemies of Kashmir, Kashmiris, development, and peace. How can they be someone's brother?"
