On the anniversary of Hizbul Mujhaideen terrorist Burhan Wani’s death, Indian Twitter users were incensed with British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) for referring to Wani as a ‘rebel leader’. Angry Indian users asked BBC if they considered Osama Bin Laden ‘a rebel’ and why they referred to attackers of the London tube as ‘terrorists’.
Here’s how Indians reacted to the BBC’s headline:

That's why Brits are HYPOCRITES of the first order. Small incident is TERROR ATTACK on London. Kashmiri terrorist Wani is REBEL LEADER. https://t.co/kBfscs47x0

Don't worry BBC, Indian army will finish all terrorism in Kashmir. You should think and write about rebels roaming freely around U.K.

Just like the manchester bomber and london mowers were rebels? Typical British double standards.

Burhan Wani was a member of Hizbul Mujahideen, designated a terrorist organisation by India. He was not a "rebel leader" he was a terrorist
