NEW DELHI: “Don’t communalise martyrs,” was Northern Command chief General Devraj Anbu’s answer today, when asked to comment on politician Asaduddin Owaisi pointing out a day earlier that five of the seven people killed in the recent Kashmir terror attack were Muslims.
“We don’t communalize martyrs, those making statements don’t know the Army well,” said Anbu. His comment was in answer to a question about AIMIM chief Owaisi’s comments from yesterday.
Owaisi yesterday pointed out that those who question Indian Muslims’ loyalty are way off base. As an example, he brought up the fact that most of the seven people who were killed in an attack on an Army camp in Kashmir on Saturday were Muslim.
“Those who call Indian Muslims Pakistani should learn something from this. We (Muslims) are sacrificing our lives (for the country,” said Owaisi, according to ANI news agency.
