In a shocking comment, National Conference lawmaker Showkat Hussain Ganie on Tuesday said that Hizbul terrorist Burhan Wani, who was killed in a battle with forces, was a freedom fighter. Hussain made his remarks during a debate in the Legislative Council, kashmirlife.net reported. In his speech, Ganie even went on to allege that Kashmiris will continue to cross over the LoC till the issue will be resolved. Interrupting his speech, a PDP leader sought clarification from Ganie that if his words belong to his party, or the opinion was his personal.
In a heated exchange of word, Gani said that he stands by his remarks, and again referred the Hizbul Terrorist as “Freedom Fighter”. The leader even refused to call Hizb Chief Syed Salahuddin a terrorist. Ganie, in a conversation with Times Now, said that Salahuddin is not a terrorist he even believed in India Constitution and fought elections here.
