'Militants from Kashmir are martyrs', says PDP MLA

National Conference MLA Ali Mohammad Sagar called Mir's statement an example of the PDP's "double standards".

Mir, who hails from a militancy-infested area, said the time has come to talk to the Hurriyat, militants and other stakeholders to resolve the Kashmir issue and end the violence and bloodshed in the region. "How can they be someone's brother", he told a news channel. "I request all to stop politicising their killings".

The MLA also sought to strike a balance, claiming party leaders " also do not want security force men to die".

Pitching for talks between India and Pakistan, the PDP MLA said both the countries should start a meaningful resolution of the Kashmir issue.

The BJP condemned Mir's statement with its state spokesman Suni Sethi saying, "It seems that said legislator has lost mental balance to talk in the language of militants and separatists while under oath of constitution as legislator".

"Terrorists, who are from Kashmir are martyrs". The opposition members of National Conference and Congress created the ruckus in the assembly on Wednesday against the civilian killing in forces firing in south Kashmir's Kulgam district on Tuesday. Speaking to the media outside the Jammu and Kashmir assembly, the PDP leader added that people should sympathise with parents of the martyred.
