Wani more dangerous from the grave: Omar Abudullah

Sat, Jul 09, 2016, 12:37 PM
A day after alleging that slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani had no links to militancy, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday asserted that Wani had become the new 'icon' for the frustrated and disaffected community in the valley.

"Aftr many years I hear slogans for "Azadi" resonate from the mosque in my uptown Srinagar locality. Kashmir's disaffected got a new icon yesterday. Mark my words - Burhan's ability to recruit into militancy from the grave will far outstrip anything he could have done on social media," Omar said in a series of tweets.

Earlier, stating that the National Conference Party had always maintained that a political problem needs a political solution, Omar had said that Burhan wasn't the first to pick up the gun and won't be the last.

"For all Burhan's social media activity I don't recall any militancy incident attributed to him while I was in office. Not sure after that," he tweeted.
