I Killed for India in Kashmir, Does That Make Me a Bad Indian?
Liaqat Ali Khan was the south Kashmir commander of the Ikhwan-ul-Muslimeen, a militia group that was supported by the Indian government to fight militants in the Valley during insurgency in the 1990s.
He believes his actions were instrumental in keeping Kashmir a part of India.
Today he lives in a militarised neighbourhood, is reviled by most Kashmiris and forgotten by the Indian public at large.
Is he a good Indian?
