I have no regrets over Afzal Guru tweets: Omar Abdullah

Omar Abdullah
Srinagar, Sep 4: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah states clearly that he won't make any appology for his controversial tweet on Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. He also added that he doesn't regret at all for his comment on twitter.

Abdullah, on the microblogging site, said that if the J&K assembly had passed a resolution against the death sentence given to Guru as was done by the Tamil Nadu assembly for the killers of Rajiv Gandhi, the reaction would not have been as muted as it is now.

“If Tamil Nadu assembly can adopt a resolution urging clemency to three convicts in Rajiv Gandhi assassination case and Punjab"s Prakash Singh Badal can come forward to defend another convict on death row, Devinder Singh Bhullar, then there should be no hue and cry if the Jammu and Kashmir assembly passes a resolution seeking clemency for Parliament attack accused, Afzal Guru, awaiting death penalty," he said.

When questioned him about his controversial comment, Omar boldly claimed that if BJP leader, Sushma Swaraj could tweet statements on Tiranga or Yatra every minute, why couldn"t he do so.
