In his post, the Kashmiri student has used ‘Zindabad’ and ‘Miss you’ in reference to Musa, who was the chief of terror outfit Ansar Ghazwatul Hind and member of slain terrorist Burhan Wani’s group
New Delhi: At a time when the entire nation is standing with the Indian forces, which killed the longest surviving terrorists Zakir Musa in an encounter on May 23, a student of Chandigarh University has allegedly uploaded an anti-national post praising the terrorist.
The Kashmiri student of the university is allegedly a part of the ‘Tukade Tukade Brigade’ and has called for breaking the nation. In his post, he has used ‘Zindabad’ and ‘Miss you’ in reference to Musa, who was the chief of terror outfit Ansar Ghazwatul Hind and member of slain terrorist Burhan Wani’s group.

The matter came to light after a Twitter user Vikas Jaswal posted screenshots of the student’s post from Facebook and tagged Punjab Police in it. MyNation independently could not verify the authenticity of the post.
Currently, the Punjab Police is investigating the case.

Currently, the matter is being investigated by cops at police station Gharuan. My Nation called the SHO who confirmed that the matter is being investigated by them but no arrest has been made so far.
“The case came to us through Twitter. We have got the screenshots in which anti-nation comments are written and also the user has praised the terrorist. We are checking the authenticity of the screenshot. We could not find the post now it has been deleted. With the help of social networking website and other tools we will try to find out of the comment was posted. If found guilty he will be arrested,” said a senior police officer to MyNation.
Zakir Musa alias Zakir Rasheed was dropped out from college to join terrorism and was active since 2013. He wanted to create an Islamic Caliphate in Kashmir. Inspired from Al-Qaeda he had formed Ansar-ul-Gazwat-ul Hind (AGH) but had hardly few members. He was earlier associated with banned terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen between 2013 and 2017. It was then he was part of the Burhan Wani group.
A sea of people also gathered during the funeral of slain terrorists. There are many youths in the valley who are terror sympathisers and consider terrorists like Musa and Wani as there heroes. Here are some of the Tweets in the support of terrorists:
Oh oppressor look at these pictures. Ocean of people from all walks of life be it men, women, boys, girls, mothers, sisters, children, old, young gathered together in mourning and bid adieu to fallen #ZakirMusa in #Tral #Kashmir pic.twitter.com/qb2AYb2Fyh— Koshur_Munda (@MundaKoshur) May 24, 2019

This is not the first time when people have come out in support of terrorists or have questioned action by the security forces. Even during Pulwama attack, in which 40 CRPF men were killed, there were many who were either justifying, reasoning, teasing India or, worse, celebrating the mass murder online.
