The anonymous developers in Jammu and Kashmir have designed an Android-based cell phone game called ‘Burhan vs Modi’ including Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani who have been killed by security forces and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The police cyber cell of the state have contracted down their names and began a probe into the matter.
Burhan Muzaffar Wani was killed by Indian security forces on July 8, this year took after by disarray in Jammu and Kashmir. Yet, it appears that months after the killing, a few frauds are attempting to revive the militant as video game. In the game, the client wears Wani’s character to shoot, kick and punch figures looking like PM Narendra Modi to win points and open further stages. The goal of the game appears to be ‘azadi’ (freedom) and the background music of the game is certain songs related to freedom.
Local residents say the game – seen now on almost every youth’s phone – indicates the popularity of Wani, whose death sparked widespread clashes with police. The violence has killed at least 90 people with more than 10,000 injured and a shutdown across the Valley for over three months.
In spite of the fact that the game is not accessible on Google Play Store from where the applications and games are downloaded by Android clients, it has turned out to be uncontrollably famous in the state and seen now on practically every youth’s cell phone. Young people in Srinagar, who have the game, told Hindustan Times that they got it from their friends’ mobile phones through file sharing applications.
In the interim, the probe has been begun in such manner. The police cyber cell has narrowed down the photographs of two Kashmiri that shows up when the game starts with subtitle ‘creator of the game’ and name of specific people that comes in the credit segment.
“Yes, the game has come to our notice and we are investigating it, The name of a certain man comes in the credit section and we have narrowed down on him. He is from south Kashmir,” said a senior officer of the police cyber cell.
