Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday paid tributes to militant commander Burhan Wani, saying his death “infused a new spirit in the struggle for freedom” in the Kashmir Valley. Sharif in a message on the first anniversary of Wani’s death said that India cannot suppress the voice of the people of Kashmir through brute force.

Wani was the commander of Hizbul Mujahideen, responsible for several attacks against security personnel in Kashmir. “The blood rendered by Burhan Muzaffar Wani has infused a new spirit in the freedom movement. The Kashmiri people are steadfast to take their movement to logical conclusion,” Sharif said.

He reiterated Pakistan’s political, diplomatic and moral support to Kashmiris for their right to self-determination. He also emphasised the need for implementing the United Nations resolutions on Kashmir and asked India to accept their right of self-determination of Kashmiris. Pakistan Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa also praised the militant commander.

“Sacrifices of #BurhanWani & generations against Indian atrocities are a testimony of their resolve,” Pakistan Army spokesperson Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor quoted Gen Bajwa as saying on Twitter.

      Foolish pakistani citizens. They attend the anniversary of a dead terrorist, and then they say that they are trying to root out terrorism from their country. They are indirectly laughing at the world and doing what they want to. ARE YOU WATCHING Mr TRUMPH ???? It is your money that they are doing all this with. Then the U S A say.s that Pak is doing a lot to counter terrorism. They are worse than North Korea.

            Indira Gandhi cut Pakistan into two pieces in 1971 war. Now Modi Ji will cut the Pakistan into 4 pieces if support to terrorism is not stopped.

              That was 1971 when India just snuck into East Pakistan and sucker punched Pakistan. This is 2017. Modi tried but Kulbushan got caught with his dhoti down in Baluchistan. It's not the same game as 1971.

                  No, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto cut Pakistan in two pieces for his hunger for power. Indira just helped the cause. Modi falls in all together in special category. He can but he will not cut Pakistan in pieces. Instead, he will get rid of Pakistani Terrorist Military and Mullahs and bring peace in Pakistan followed by progress.

                    Very interesting, if war erupted between India and Pakistan, India will be at loss. Apart from Nuclear nukes, Pakistan has missiles which can hit Bombay and Kolkata. India will be wiped of the world map before any thing happen to Pakistan.....

                      These Pakistani "freedom" lovers and some of their "human rights" interests failed to mention even once the plight of Kashmiri Hindus. This alone should be a test whether they are terrorist supporters or not! Which freedom movement drives people out of their land where they have been living for thousands of years and which freedom movement allowes refugees coming from Myanmar and Bangladesh to settle there (after driving the Hindus out) when they also have a "policy" of no outsiders to be settled there? Since they themselves have violated their beloved article 370, India actively should continue what they have started and settle people in Kashmir bringing in from elsewhere, like e.g. BANGLADESH settled beggars from everywhere in the country in Hill Tracts during Zia's period!

                        Chinese love both pork and beef dumplings. Beef is called red meat, and pork meat is called white meat--both are good food. Why do Indian Aryan Brahmins, creators of the Hindoo religion, who originated from Eurasia, have a fake problem with beef which they ingrained in the Hindoo religion? Indian Aryan Brahmins noticed that the native Dravidian's genetic makeup made the Dravidians susceptible to diseases when the Dravidians were denied meat, and that they (Aryan Brahmins) did not face that handicap. So they devised the system of Hindoo religion to deny meat to the Dravidians in order to keep them suppressed and exploited.
