Media and “Intellectuals” sympathise with Terrorist Wani, Social media rebukes

Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Muzzafar Wani, was shot dead on Friday by security forces along with two of his accomplices in Kokernag area. Wani was seen as the main draw for many young and educated boys in South Kashmir turning into terrorists in recent months. He featured in videos and photos posing with weapons and taunting security forces, which were circulated on Facebook and WhatsApp in an attempt to recruit young Kashmiri men.

Leftist heroes like Kavita Krishnan and JNU sloganeer and Kanhaiya Kumar’s friend Umar Khalid slammed Wani’s killing. Krishnan, who is a staple panelist on some TV shows called it an “extra-judicial” killing:

Umar Khalid chose to use this moment to inspire more people to pick the gun:

And Kanhaiya himself left a cryptic message saying violence in valley is not the answer. Seems violence can be the answer when Wani and gang wield guns but not when army counter-attacks

Indian Express went one step ahead and changed its Facebook cover page to that of Wani’s dead body being venerated by Kashmiri Hizbul sympathisers. Social media users were obviously appalled:

The best though was saved for the last. When India Today journalist Rahul Kanwal tried to find justification for Wani’s radicalisation, albeit a contrived and idiotic justification, for which he was slammed:

Only a few journalists spoke out against these terrorist sympathisers:
