Omar decries execution of Afzal Guru

By The Assam Tribune

SRINAGAR, Feb 10 � An angry Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today decried the execution of Afzal Guru and said this would reinforce a sense of alienation and injustice among generation of youth in the Valley, reports PTI.

Omar also said it was a �tragedy� that Guru was not allowed to meet his family before he was hanged and not allowed a �final farewell�. The 43-year-old Parliament attack convict was hanged and buried in Tihar jail premises in Delhi in a secret operation yesterday.

Clearly unhappy with the hanging of Guru, the Chief Minister said there were many questions that needed to be answered.

Omar observed that the long-term implications of Guru�s hanging were �far more worrying� as they were related to the new generation of youth in Kashmir �who may not have identified with Maqbool Bhat but will identify with Afzal Guru.� Bhat, a Kashmiri separatist leader, was hanged in Tihar jail in 1984 for the murder of Indian diplomat Ravindra Mhatre in the UK.
