Thousands participate in funeral prayers of slain militants

Thousands of people including women and children thronged the funeral prayers of the slain militant killed in a pre-dawn gunfight with government forces in Bagander Mohalla of Bijbehara in southern Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Thursday.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

_Witnesses said that thousands of people from different areas of Anantnag district participated in the funeral of Burhan-ud-din at SK Colony in Anantnag._

*They said that multiple funeral prayers were held before slain Burhan, who was a physiotherapist by profession, was laid to rest amid intense pro-freedom and pro-militant slogans.*

Reports said that similar scenes were witnessed at Zirpora in Biijbehra where another slain militant Safdar was laid to rest amid multiple funeral prayers.

The two militants were killed in a gunfight with the forces in Bagander Mohalla in Bijbehara township of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district.

Meanwhile, a complete shutdown is being observed in the district while authorities have imposed restrictions in main town Anantnag amidst a complete internet shutdown.
