Young rebel leader Hizbul Mujahideen (Hizb) commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani was popular among the social media users of Kashmir. Wani was extremely active on social media, and unlike militants in the past, did not hide his identity behind a mask.
Last week, when news of Wani’s killing spread, the narratives reversed instantly. The Indian state called it a successful anti-terror operation and common Kashmiris propped up Wani along with the likes of JKLF’s Ashfaq Majeed Wani, an “iconic martyr” of the 1990 Kashmir militancy.
Burhan Wani’s funeral was attended by thousands of people, and despite restrictions, the funeral venue was so crowded there was no space to conduct funeral prayers.
