He said, "Be that militant, or any one, they are Kashmiris, they are our brothers".

"Celebrating the death of militants, who were children of Kashmir, can not be justified".

He urged the Centre's special representative on Jammu and Kashmir Dineshwar Sharma to talk to all in the state.

He also expressed his sympathy over the killing of security forces. If a sitting legislator has said it, it certainly calls for an inquiry.

On further questions from the reporters asking him whether he actually feels the militants are martyrs, Mir said, "Jo Kashmir ke hein, chahey kisi bhi halat mein marein, woh martyr hein (Those who hail from Kashmir are martyrs irrespective of the fact under what circumstances they get killed)". They are our brothers.

"They are children who have gone down the wrong track and should be counselled and brought back", Ahmed said.
