Son of a government school principal, Burhan Wani is among the most dreaded militants of south Kashmir today. Some even call him the ‘face of terror’ in villages in south of Srinagar.
He carries a reward of Rs 10 lakh on his head. For several years, Burhan and other Hizb commanders have depended on terrorists trained in Pakistan to swell their ranks.
A new video acquired by News Nation shows that Burhan is using social website and Internet to attract local Kashmiri youths towards militancy.
Till date, the Hizb commander, who has been active in the Tral area in Pulwama district of south Kashmir, has successfully recruited around 30 new young boys from south Kashmir.
The media reports state that Burhan is active on social networking site ‘Facebook’ and works under names like Tiger Tral, HM Tral, Burhan Tral etc.
Burhan keeps changing the names of his Facebook pages and uses ‘Whatsapp’ effectively to spread his message.
