India slams Pakistan for glorifying Wani

India on Sunday hit out at Pakistan for glorifying militant commander Burhan Wani, saying Islamabad's terror support and sponsorship need to be condemned by 'one and all'.

In a strongly worded tweet, External Affairs Ministry Spokesman Gopal Baglay said, " First @ForeignOfficePk read frm banned LeT's script. Now Pak COAS (Pakistan army chief) glorifies Burhan Wani. Pak's terror support and sponsorship need to be condemned by one and all."
Baglay's comments came a day after Pakistan Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa praised Wani, Hizbul Mujahideen commander who was killed in an encounter with Indian security forces last year.
Wani was responsible for several attacks against security personnel in Kashmir.
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday paid tributes to Wani, saying his death "infused a new spirit in the struggle for freedom" in the Kashmir Valley.
Meanwhile, the authorities in Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday restored all internet services in the Valley, two days after the facilities were snapped due to apprehensions of law-and-order problems on the first death anniversary of Hizbul Mujahideen "commander" Burhan Wani.
"All internet services, including broadband and high- speed mobile internet, have been restored in Kashmir," said an official.
He added that the services were restored in view of the "improving situation".
While the 2G mobile internet services were restored during the night, the high-speed (3G and 4G) internet services were restored this evening.
The BSNL's broadband service was resumed this morning, said the official, adding that all the social media sites were also working across all the platforms.
The internet services were snapped across the Valley on Thursday night as a precautionary measure to maintain law- and-order in view of Wani's first death anniversary on Saturday.
Wani was killed in an encounter with the security forces in south Kashmir's Anantnag district on July 8 last year.
His killing had triggered massive protests and prolonged periods of curfews and shutdowns across the Valley.
As many as 85 people were killed and thousands injured in the daily clashes between the security forces and protesters for a period of over four months.
Life in the Valley returned to normal on Sunday after two days of restrictions and strikes as Wani's first death anniversary remained by and large peaceful.
