KARACHI: Actor Hamza Ali Abbasi said on Tuesday that Facebook removed his post in which he had praised the deceased Kashmiri young man Burhan Wani who was killed by the Indian armed forces in Indian-held Kashmir. The status update before it was removed said, “Look at this man. He is not an ISI agent, he is not a Mullah inspired and Pakistani funded militant. He is Burhan Wani Shaheed. A Kashmiri who joined the freedom struggle of Kashmir when his brother was killed by Indian Army.” “If Kashmir issue is not resolved according to the will of Kashmiris and UN resolutions, we have another Palestine in the making right in our backyard. #IAmBurhanWani #BurhanWaniShaheed #Kashmir.” The social media platform had suspended Abbasi’s account following the post, but later restored the account after removing it. “It’s absurd how the flag bearers of ‘freedom of speech’ act in this way for raising a voice for victims of aggression,” Abbasi said. His praise for Wani came at a time when the disputed region is being rocked by violent protests and a severe crackdown is underway by the Indian forces against the media and local Kashmiri population.
