Srinagar: While deciding to honor slain militant commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani with 'Tamga-i-Azeemat' (Medal of Greatness) for what it described as Burhan's "dedication, sincerity and bravery", Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani said on Wednesday that "it is the result of the brave and sincere efforts of Shaheed Burhan Wani that the entire Jammu & Kashmir from Ladakh to Kishtiwar, Doda and from Ramban Banihal to Uri Baramulla is today on the roads demanding the right to self determination".
Burhan has leased a new life to the ongoing freedom struggle of Jammu & Kashmir, Geelani said in a statement issued here.
Geelani said, Burhan has united and strengthened the pro-freedom voice of this troubled state and the entire nation is feeling pride in paying tributes to this 'Great Mujahid.'
While paying rich tributes to the parents of Burhan Wani, Geelani said that they are the proud parents of a brave son.
