Burning the effigy of rightwing Hindu outfits including Bajrang Dal and Shiv Shakti Sena Wednesday held protests against the BJP-PDP coalition government’s decision to give ex-gratia to the family of Khalid Muzaffar Wani, brother of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, who was killed by the armed forces on 8th July.

Raising anti-government slogans, the activists of the rightwing groups burnt the effigy of government and threatened to launch an agitation if government grants compensation to the family.

Criticising the chief minister, Shiv Shakti Sena President Rakesh Gupta said, “On one side, Indian Army is fighting bravely with the militants to avoid loss of life and property in the Kashmir Valley whereas, on the other hand, Mehbooba Mufti is granting compensation for Khalid Wani.”

Opposing the move, he said the government was showing soft corner for the militants. “SM Mehbooba is playing dual policy to play with the sentiments of the nationalist persons,” he said.

Claiming that Mehbooba government is soft towards militants, Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party staged protests in Jammu and Udhampur districts. “The government has set a new precedence in Jammu Kashmir by granting compensation to the kin of top militant commander Burhan Wani.

This is shameful,” JKNPP Chief Harsh Dev Singh said.

Jammu West Assembly Movement led by Sunil Dimple too held protest at new plot road in Jammu against the government’s decision.

Dimple alleged that the State is burning and the BJP-PDP Government led by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is soft on the militants and has completely failed in the restoration of the peace and normalcy in the State. He alleged that BJP equally responsible for this grant, just for the sake of power.
