According to the reports, the fourth anniversary of the great Mujahid of Tehreek-e-Azadi Kashmir, Hurriyat leader and Hizbul Mujahideen Burhan Wani is being celebrated today. On the fourth anniversary of the martyrdom, “Burhan Wani” kept trending on Twitter all day long.
Internet service and mobile service were shut down by the Indian Army in occupied Kashmir on the occasion of Burhan Wani’s death anniversary. Indian authorities have suspended mobile internet service in four districts, including Kulgam. A large number of security personnel have been deployed on the highway connecting Jammu and Kashmir. Hundreds of Kashmiris were arrested by the Indian Army and police in Srinagar, Budgam, Islamabad and several other areas.
Fed up with the oppression of the Indian army, Burhan Muzaffar Wani dropped his pen and picked up a gun when he was just 15 years old. The dying independence movement breathed new life into Kashmir and drank the cup of martyrdom by lighting its own candle.
With his hard work, he soon became a great fighter of the freedom movement and rose to the rank of commander in a few years. He was 21 years old at the time of his martyrdom.
Burhan Wani spread the message of freedom from house to house through social media and a large number of Kashmiri youth started joining Hizbul Mujahideen. Burhanwani invited Kashmiri Pandits to return and ensured the safety of Hindu pilgrims, which further increased their popularity.
On the occasion of the fourth anniversary of Burhan Wani, a complete strike has been called in occupied Kashmir today, July 8, while all shopping malls across the valley are closed. Demonstrations will be held today against the occupying government on the appeal of the Hurriyat leadership.
Earlier, on the occasion of the first anniversary of Mujahid leader Burhan Wani, India had turned the occupied valley into a cantonment. However, the blood-shining movement of Burhan Wani, who lit the lamp, is still going on in the Sangrez Valley.
It may be recalled that Burhan Wani was martyred by the Indian Army on July 8, 2016 during an operation in the Kokranag area, 60 km from Srinagar.
After the martyrdom of Burhani Wani, protests continued for several months in most districts of Occupied Kashmir, while the Indian Army used pellet guns on the protesters, killing 85 Kashmiri people and injuring thousands.
