Kashmiri boy presents ‘Burhan’ flyover for his semester project
Boy wins hearts with his ‘Burhan’ flyover project. Isn’t that shameful?
This picture that has gone viral on social media shows a boy posing with his project model. Reportedly an engineering student in Chandigarh, after completion he named his project as “Burhan Flyover, Kashmir”. Surprisingly, many people have who liked the picture despite knowing the fact that slain militant Burhan Wani is unfortunate as it is condemnable to support a person who was involved in violent activities including murdering and spreading terror.
It is pertinent to note here that at least 23 South Kashmiri youth turned to militancy after Burhan Wani’s death. During the Kashmir unrest, scores of youngsters disappeared and joined militant groups.
“Youth are on the one hand inspired by Burhan and on the other they feel the government of India does not care about the pain of Kashmiris. But these youngsters do not have any training or understanding of the consequence of their becoming a militant. They are driven by a sudden emotion,” said prominent political scientist Noor Ahmad Baba.
On the other hand, many instances of Kashmir youth being beaten across colleges in Jammu, came to limelight in April.
