Kashmir worry: Death of Burhan Wani Birth of unrest clashes !

Burhan Wani, born to a highly educated upper-class Kashmiri family, Wani is believed to have been driven to militancy at the age of 15, when he was beaten up by police along with his brother "for no reason". He was extremely active on social media and, unlike militants in the past, did not hide his identity.

Burhan had become the poster boy of new-age militancy, in which educated young men from the Valley took up arms for the first time after the 1990 uprising and trained themselves locally to wage a battle against what they saw as an “occupation”.

Police in Indian-administered Kashmir say at least 30 people have been killed in clashes between protesters and security forces following the shooting of a well-known militant leader.

Burhan Wani, 22, died in a gunfight with the Indian army on Friday. More deaths were reported on Monday after a weekend of violence left 23 dead, including a policeman. The violence is the worst seen in the region for years. Some 800 extra troops are being sent to help restore order. More than 200 other people have been injured in the clashes, in which government forces have fired live rounds and tear gas.

A curfew is in place across much of the Muslim-majority Kashmir valley after a police post was set alight and a military airbase targeted during the latest clashes.

Disputed Kashmir is claimed in its entirety by both India and Pakistan and has been a flashpoint for more than 60 years, sparking two wars between the countries.

There is a lot of anger among youth. There is a lot of anxiety, as well. A lot will depend on what will happen at the time of his funeral in Tral. If there are more deaths, it may well be the beginning of another cycle of protests, what Burhan started won’t end with his death, it may get a fresh life with his death. However, Rights groups have described the current situation as a state of emergency. Hospitals struggled to cope with wounded protesters and phone and internet services were suspended.

For a change, first time in so far government took the initiative for the set the peace and resolve the problem in the state as the Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a high-level meeting to review the situation as soon as possible. On another side Pakistan endure to brainwash the Kashmiri’s youth with their cheap tricks to promote the terrorism in India. Now, this is our duty to cooperate and understand the vulnerable situation of the state and unite our strength against the terrorism and fight back to set the peace in Nation.
