National Conference leader says people of Tral should not have voted for BJP as terrorists Burhan Wani and Zakir Musa were ‘martyred’ there

Sagar even elevated the slain terrorists’ status to that of ‘martyrs’ and referred to their ‘sacrifice’ by calling into question the people of Tral for voting BJP.

In a shocking speech, National Conference (NC) leader Ali Mohammad Sagar eulogized anti-India terrorists alleging that BJP made inroads in Kashmir in areas where Burhan Wani and Zakir Musa were shot down in an encounter by the Indian Armed Forces.

Sagar even elevated the slain terrorists’ status to that of ‘martyrs’ and referred to their ‘sacrifice’ by calling into question the people of Tral for voting BJP. “It is ironical that the people of Tral where Burhan Wani and Zakir Musa got martyred voted for the BJP. This should not have happened,” NC leader Sagar asserted.

The former minister and the general secretary of NC, Sagar was addressing a rally in South Kashmir during, which he ventured into connecting the deaths of terrorists with a political party’s electoral gains. The state of Jammu and Kashmir is currently under the President’s rule and may go for polls anytime.

South Kashmir, traditionally a stronghold of PDP, had rapidly ceded space to BJP as the saffron party started gaining more support and popularity in the region. With the possibility of assembly elections looming large and the threat of the BJP sweeping South Kashmir highly probable, the NC leader proceeded to glorify slain terrorists as ‘martyrs’ to appease the voters.

Incidentally, this has been the modus operandi of both the principal parties- PDP and NC in Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier this year, NC chief Omar Abdullah had accused Mehbooba Mufti of using dead terrorists to appease voters. Mufti, PDP chief was frequenting families of slain terrorists and lending an ear to their grievances.

In April Mufti had urged PM Narendra Modi to leave Kashmir if he thought that the state was a financial burden on the country.
