Omar praises Centre’s secrecy
Justice Done: Farooq
Srinagar, Nov 21: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Wednesday praised New Delhi and Maharashtra Government for what he said, successfully keeping the Ajmal Kasab’s hanging under wraps, and said both the governments have shown that “we can still keep a secret if we need to.”
“Gotta hand it to the Governments at the Centre and in Mumbai for the mature way they handled this. Shows we can still keep a secret if we need to,” Omar Abdullah commented on the micro blogging site twitter.
The Chief Minster also took a jibe at the news channels regarding their claims of breaking the news. "Now we'll watch all the channels line up to claim that they were the ones to break the news of the hanging.” Omar tweeted.
He also questioned the American Media for describing Ajmal Kasab as ‘gunman’. "So Hamas are terrorists but Kasab was a gunman. Well done American media you really call it like it is," Omar said sarcastically.
JUSTICE HAS BEEN DONE: FAROOQ
PTI Adds from Mumbai: Union Minister and National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah today welcomed the decision of hanging Ajmal Kasab.
"I think it is justice done long time the nation wanted. Finally the man who had entered our country and killed so many innocent people has been hanged. I am glad the President refused clemency and finally he was hanged this morning," Abdullah said.
He was here for BCCI meeting.
"I am sure many of those whose relatives had died, they must be at ease today. I think our justice system is such that it takes time, but the justice is finally done. You should be happy. He was given all the opportunities and justice was finally done," the minister added.
