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

Ajmal Qasab, 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."
