Srinagar, June 04 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, a week after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Sabzar Ahmad Butt by Indian troops, the locals have named his native street after him in Tral town.

The street in Rathsun village has been named Zarar Colony as Commander Sabzar was famous among his friends by this name. A board reading the name has been erected at the entrance of the street.

In Rathsun, banners with images of Burhan Wani and Sabzar have been hung along the roads and near the local martyrs’ graveyard.

One such banner near his house reads: “Our beloved fighter, we will always remember you.” It is one of the most photographed banners. Youths take selfies with the banner in the background.

“The forces have taken our hero away from us but not his memories and those memories will always stay with us,” said Atif, a youth from a nearby village.

A group of women from Sabzar’s colony shouted slogans in favor of Sabzar and Kashmir’s freedom while showering petals on the banners.

“Sabzar was someone who died for the honor of the women of Kashmir and we feel safe when young militants like him are fighting against the oppression,” said a young girl.

Sabzar Ahmad Butt alias Zarar, who succeeded Burhan Wani as Hizbul Mujahideen commander was killed by Indian troops along with his associate Faizan in Saimoh village of Tral on May 27.
