As per a statement issued to news agency CNS, Syed Salahuddin, the UJC chief while addressing a high level meeting said, “The separation of Burhan and other militants is really painful.”
He, however, added, “The death of this militant commander (Burhan) will not have any negative impact on the ongoing Kashmir Freedom Movement.”
