Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir), July 7 (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Friday dubbed the statement of senior Congress leader Saifuddin Soz on Burhan Wani as 'anti national' and asserted there is no scope of relief for a terrorist, as he will be dealt in the manner he deserves. Singh said that Soz should have not even thought of making such a comment, while adding that by backing Wani he is trying to glorify him. "Such people who speak for terrorists like Burhan Wani are anti-nationals. They should not even think like this. What are these people intending to do? Are they trying to glorify the terrorists? Such statements bring good for nobody. Terrorists will be dealt the way they should be," said Singh. Soz earlier today said the decision to kill Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was not one he would have chosen, while averring that initiating dialogue with him should have been better. "If it were up to me, Burhan Wani would have been kept alive and a dialogue would have taken place," said Soz. (ANI)
