The Youth of Kashmir like Irfan Sheikh who are at the forefront of the freedom movement, giving immense sacrifices, have every right to question their leadership and vent their emotions,” he wrote on his twitter handle
Mirwaiz said that the Kashmiri youth had every right to question their leadership
Mirwaiz further condemned Indian media terming the misinterpretation of the video as deplorable , “It is deplorable that this boy is being made a tool by this insensitive media in a vicious propaganda campaign.” He tweeted
Indian media channels like republic and others that are known for its anti Kashmir stance had played the video repeatedly condemning the Hurriyat
Earlier Sheikh Irfan had told The Kashmir press that he considered Hurriyat as his ‘family’ and that he was upset , “ I can never say anything against Hurriyat or any of its members, they are like a family to me, they are our representatives,” he said
He had condemned the Indian media for taking his words out of context, “Indian media had edited the video to their taste, it was a conversation not a small clip, I had my grudge with the Hurriyat and I was just venting out,” he said
