Pakistan’s Azadi Train featuring Burhan Wani as ‘national hero’ concludes journey

A special train that depicted slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani among Pakistan’s “national heroes”  has concluded its countrywide journey.

The ‘Azadi Train’ which began its journey from Islamabad on August 12, to mark Pakistan’s 70th  Independence Day and create awareness about national heroes, reached its final destination in Karachi on Sunday, Dunya News reported.

The train consisted of five art galleries “illustrated with pictures of people who sacrificed their lives during the independence movement.”

The sacrifices of Pakistan’s armed forces and “Indian aggression in Indian-held Kashmir” had also  been displayed in the picture galleries.

Photos published in the Pakistani media showed that at least one coach was dedicated to depicting the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. This coach was  emblazoned with the slogan “Save Kashmir” and featured a larger-than-life image of Burhan Wani, the Hizbul Mujahideen commander who was killed by forces last year.
