ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday paid his tribute to Hizbul 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 Hizbul commander.
“Sacrifices of Burhan Wani & generations against Indian atrocities are a testimony of their resolve,” Pakistan Army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor quoted General Bajwa as saying on Twitter.
