Viral video: militants pray at Saddam Paddar’s grave, offer gun salutes

A video showing group of militants offering prayers and then firing in air at the grave of slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Saddam Paddar has gone viral over social networking sites in Kashmir.

Shot in broad day light, the 26-seconds video shows five armed militants praying for Saddam Paddar at his grave and then shouting pro-Islam slogans loudly in Shupian’s Heff-Shermal, which is the native village of Paddar who was killed in a gunfight earlier this month.

The militants fire several gun shots in air during the sloganeering from their INSAS and AK47 rifles. Apart from militants, no local is visible in the video. It is not clear who and when was the video shot.
