Slogans hailing the Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist as a martyr are now played everyday in Mosques at Srinagar and the Southern parts of Kashmir.
The poem called, "Main Burhan Hoon," (I am Burhan) is played in mosques and this activity is aimed at urging the youth to fight against the security forces who killed the terrorist. Similar occurrences have been witnessed during the 1990s and also in the year 2010.
However, this time around the challenge is greater for the security forces as everyone wants to have a piece of Wani.
When a tarana becomes a challenge
The tarana or poem is said to have been written by Wani himself. However, it was incomplete. It was completed by his followers and now the same is played in the Mosques.
The verses of the poem speaks about Burhan and his fight against the security forces. It urges the people of Kashmir to come forward and fight against the security forces. Further the poem also speaks about the killing of Burhan's brother and father at the hands of the security forces.
For the security forces this has become a whole new challenge now.
The violence has died down and incidents of stone pelting have come down. However this is another phase to the protest where through slogans and poems the youth are being provoked to continue fighting against the security forces. The police say that this is the latest in the propaganda war and steps are being taken to stop this.
