I Killed for India in Kashmir, Does That Make Me a Bad Indian?

India

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?
