Jammu and Kashmir chief minister said while America media call Hamas terrorist group they term Ajmal Kasab a gunman.

Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday mocked the American media for describing 26/11 convict Ajmal Kasab, who was executed in a Pune Jail on Wednesday morning, as a "gunman" and not a terrorist.

He tweeted: "So Hamas are terrorists but Kasab was a gunman. Well done American media you really call it like it is. #sarcasm"

Ajmal Kasab, who was the sole surviving Pakistani terrorist of the 26/11 attack in Mumbai in which 166 people were killed, was hanged in a jail in Pune Wednesday morning.

In his earlier tweet during the day, Omar Abdullah wrote: "Gotta hand it to the Govts at the centre & in Mumbai for the mature way they handled this. Shows we can still keep a secret if we need to."
