Burhan Wani was a ‘Freedom Fighter’: Nawaz Sharif

Slain Kashmiri militant Burhan Wani was a ‘freedom fighter and pride of Kashmiri people’, said Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday.

Nawaz Sharif said they were committed to the Kashmiri cause. “No power in the world can stop us from supporting the freedom struggle of Kashmiris. India is mistaken if it considered that the freedom fight (in Jammu and Kashmir) could be equated with terrorism,” said Sharif.

Sharif said this during a meeting of his party’s Central Working Committee. The members present in the meeting condemned the Indian aggression at the Line of Control (LoC). More than 90 protesters have been killed in the Kashmir Valley in clashes with security forces since Wani’s 8 July killing.
