For years all together, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the valley's leading Pak agent has projected himself as a saviour of Kashmiri people. He has projected himself as the voice of the alienated and as a man of god who can do no wrong. His sanctimonious attacks on the Centre have moved some Human Rights activists to tears.
Some taken in by his oratorial skills have even gone against the Centre. But today the man who positions himself as the voice of Kashmiri people stands exposed as a two faced, stone hearted, menacing opportunist.
NewsX has accessed damning footage that shows that far from being the messiah of the Kashmiri people, Mirwaiz will not think twice about using physical violence to get them to toe his line. In the footage, we are going to show you Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is shown slapping a shopkeeper who allegedly refused to pay a donation to the Chief cleric's trust. But Mirwaiz didn't stop at that. He issued a threat to all shopkeepers warning them that if they don't pay up, he'll burn down their shops.
The BJP, Congress and other activists are shocked. They say that far from being the humanist he pretends to be, Mirwaiz has exposed himself as a self-serving thug who will stop at nothing to exploit the people to further his ends. The question now is will the state government arrest this man? Will the state human rights commission take cognisance?
