The Army on Wednesday said it does “not communalize martyrs”, slamming Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi for his comments on soldiers killed in the Sunjuwan terror attack.
“We do not communalize martyrs, those making statements don’t know the Army well,” General Officer Commanding-in-Chief Northern Command Lt Gen. Devraj Anbu told reporters.
He, however, did not name the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen MP who on Tuesday asked why those questioning the patriotism of Muslims were silent over the deaths of Muslim soldiers in the Sunjuwan army camp terror attack.
“Five of the seven killed in the attack (on Saturday) were Kashmiri Muslims. Now, everybody is silent on their sacrifice,” Owaisi had said, asking: “Why such silence on this issue?”
