Burhan Wani more dangerous dead than alive: TMC

Updated: Aug 10, 2016 13:09 IST

New Delhi, Aug. 10 (ANI): A day after the government came under increased pressure from the Opposition in connection with the issue of Kashmir unrest, the Trinamool Congress on Wednesday said Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani was more dangerous on internet than on streets, adding that he was more dangerous dead than alive.

"Please do not meddle in India's matters. Burhan Wani was more dangerous on internet than on streets. He's more dangerous dead than alive. It is very important at this stage not to make a distinction between Kashmir-the land and Kashmir-the people," TMC MP Derek O' Brien told the Rajya Sabha.

The Opposition leaders had voiced concern over the Valley being curfew-bound for over a month and demanded a stop to the use of pellet guns.

They also demanded a parliamentary delegation to be sent to Kashmir to deliberate with all sections and an all-party meet to find a resolution.

"There is murder of humanity and democracy in Kashmir. 'Kashmiriyat' and 'Insaniyat' are murdered by pellet guns. We all should jointly take out a solution for this. Everyone in Kashmir is a victim of militancy. Many of us have lost their near and dear ones due to this militancy in Kashmir," Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad told Rajya Sabha earlier today.

There should be an all-party delegation and a meeting that needs to be sent to Jammu and Kashmir. It should be announced during the Parliament," he added.

Asserting that the former UPA regime initiated many confidence building measures, the Congress leader further said the Parliament must appeal people for peace in Kashmir.

"Jammu and Kashmir has a curfew, many people have been injured. Civilians have faced losses. And as Parliament is on, we all need to share their pain," said Azad.

Asserting that using force is not the way, Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav said they have to strive hard to win hearts of Kashmiris, adding that the use of pellet guns must be stopped immediately.

"Kashmir is angry with us. But we should bring it back with love.otherwise history won't forgive us," he told the Rajya Sabha.

Ramgopal Yadav of the Samajwadi Party called for sending a strong message to Pakistan not to meddle in Kashmir.

He alleged that Pakistan and ISI are involved in misleading the youth of Kashmir Valley.

He said the neighboring country is sponsoring and supporting those who are involved in anti-India activities.

Terming the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir as complex, Yadav said it is high time to fight against powers which are trying to destabilize peace and security in Kashmir. (ANI)
