    An anti-India article on Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani by Basharat Ali, a research scholar at the Academy of International Studies, Jamia Millia Islamia in New Delhi has been published by Pakistan-based Dawn newspaper.

    Published in Dawn on October 29, the article was also carried out earlier by Kashmir Reader, which has been banned by Jammu and Kashmir government in the wake of the ongoing unrest in the Valley, Ali shared this information on Facebook.

    Headline of the article in the Dawn is: “I’ll never forget the day Burhan Wani was killed”. In the article, Ali recalls the day he received the news of the death of Wani. Ali told his relatives: “Burhan gove shaheed (Burhan has been martyred)”.

    Ali writes about what people in the Valley anticipated about the coming days. “People know how the state functions. The Indian state’s oppression is as routinised in war-time as it is in peace-time,” he writes

    Ali says that protests against India that started after Wani’s death “were a sign of the Indian state losing all ground. The divisions that they had constructed — Shia-Sunni, Muslim-non-Muslim, Kashmiri-Ladakhi, Tableeghi-Salafi, majority-minority — to obfuscate the truth went up in smoke as the air was now incensed with songs of freedom.”

    Apparently certifying that there is no Pakistan-hand in the unrest in the Valley, Ali writes: “But in the newsrooms in India, it was the perennial threat that was being accused of fomenting the trouble. Pakistan, they said, was responsible for causing unrest in Kashmir.”

    Calling the Indian media “jingoistic”, Ali writes: “Who will they (media) blame for their own failure and guilt, their own deception and debauchery?”

    Welcome to the 'Liberal world' of the Indian democracy. Only yesterday Congress and Owaisi were crying over the SIMI encounter.

    Some people just live to criticize the state and it's policies. I would request Ali to spend a year or two in Pakistan and see how things work there.

    Won't make any difference, these category of people will be treated with great hospitality in Pakistan. They will enjoy and continue to write negativity about India.

    His thoughts are well respected, but he should have avoided posting such articles in Pakistani news media.

    Its internal matter and cannot be discussed in Pakistan.
