According to this report by Hindustan Times, some anonymous developers in the Valley have created an Android-based mobile game 'Burhan Vs Modi'. The game is aimed at making a user, who can be Wani, attain azaadi (freedom) as the character shoots, kicks and punches to eliminate the characters which look like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to gain points. With pro-azaadi songs playing in the background, the user can play 10 levels each.

The report further states that the game has become a rage among the youngsters in the Valley.

However, the game cannot be found on the Google Play Store, the place for most of the Android users to download games.

The newspaper quoted a senior police official from the cyber cell as saying that they have taken note of the game and narrowed down on a man from south Kashmir. However, the youngsters who have been playing the game said that they got it from their friends through file sharing applications which do not require internet connectivity, the report added.

As many as 85 people, including two policemen, have been killed and several thousand others injured in the ongoing unrest in the Valley. Around 5,000 security forces personnel have also been injured in the clashes.
