New Delhi:
AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi has said that five of the seven individuals- six armymen and a civilian- who lost lives in the Sunjuwan attack in Jammu and Kashmir were Kashmiri Muslims. Claiming that the "nationalism of Muslims is always doubted" by some people in the country, Owaisi questioned "why" nothing was "being said about" the fact that militants killed "Kashmiri Muslims" too in the Sunjuwan attack.

"Nationalism of Muslims is questioned. Five of seven are Kashmiri Muslims. Why is nothing being said about this? Why is there silence on this issue? And people who have been doubting the loyalties of Muslims need to learn from this (sic)," Owaisi said.
"They Call Muslims Pakistanis. The militants are killing us too. Terrorists are not seeing that they are Muslims or Hindus. They are considering us Indians. But there are people in our country who doubt our loyalties (sic)," he further added.

Owaisi's comments were being viewed as being "communal" with many citing that the men in uniform should not be differentiated on religious lines. TA Rehmani, President, Muslim Political Council of India told Times Now, "Jawans should not be looked on from communal lines."

Six army men and a civilian were killed when a group of militants attacked an Army camp in Sunjuwan in Jammu and Kashmir.
