(Rising Kashmir)Srinagar, Sep 19:Kashmiri netizens expressed outrage over the death of three-year-old Burhan Bashir who succumbed to injuries sustained in an attack by unidentified gunmen in Sopore on Friday.
The last picture of the lifeless body of Burhan wrapped in a blanket and arms tied with bandage on chest went viral on social networking sites Facebook and Twitter.
Some of the netizens related the pictures to that of a Syrian kid lying dead on Turkey’s Bodrum beach. The child was said to be one of the 11 Syrian refugees who drowned after their boat sank in a bid to reach the Greek island of Kos from Turkey.
While comparing Burhan to the Syrian toddler, Farah Wani tweeted, “They Sink There in water, Here in blood and everywhere Humanity dies.”
Burhan was in the lap of his father Bashir Ahmad Bhat when unidentified gunmen opened indiscriminate fire at them. While Bashir died on way to hospital, Burhan breathed his last at SKIMS on Saturday morning.
Expressing anger over the killing, another netizen said, “The bullet that hit the young child pierced thousands of human hearts.”
Another netizen Mehraj-ud-din wrote that the Syrian child, Aylan Kurdi received global attention “while the 3-year-old Burhan along with his father was showered with bullets in Kashmir”.
Youths also expressed displeasure over the ‘silence’ of politicians over the killing. A netizen Junaid tweeted sarcastically: “I think @abdullah_Omar is not in the town, he would have condemned the killing. It is a PDP govt…Remember…”
