India hits out at Pakistan for glorifying Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani

"The alert is not only for unlawful assembly of people and rallies but also for militant strikes", he said.

Authorities had imposed curfew in old city area of Srinagar and in Burhan Wani's native town Tral, while restrictions were also imposed in nearly all the district headquarters in the Valley where the paramilitary CRPF and police in full riot gear patrolled the areas.

However, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir, Muneer Khan said they will leave no stone unturned to ensure that peace and law and order are maintained in the Valley.

"Despite of all pressure tactics to suppress the freedom movement, martyrs of Kashmir and their mission of freedom is alive and people will take it to its logical end and no one can stop us from our genuine struggle right to self-determination", said Zafar.

Congress spokesperson R P N Singh said the party has nothing to do with Soz's remarks, which is not the party's stated position, but questioned the PDP-BJP government on payment of compensation to Burhan Wani's family.

The security forces got a big fish on May 27, when they killed HM "commander", Sabzar Ahmad Bhat and his aide Faizan Muzaffar in Soimoh village of Tral in Pulwama District in an encounter. Wani, who attracted dozens of new recruits using social media platforms such as Facebook and other sites, had sort of rekindled Hizbul Mujahideen.

TMZ also reported Tidal sent a letter to West threatening a lawsuit if he attempts to join another streaming music service. Kanye West has had his run with exclusive streaming deals, and he's had enough.

While Indian authorities in Kashmir labelled him an extremist, his supporters called him a rebel leader.

The disputed region has seen an explosion of protests against Indian rule since government forces shot and killed Wani a year ago. The Congress stands by the security forces.

Wani's death had led to widespread protests throughout the Valley resulting in the deaths of at least 78 people with many being injured.

He had posted on Twitter: "Mark my words - Burhan's ability to recruit in to militancy from the grave will far outstrip anything he could have done on social media". The Foreign Office alleged that Indian firing had resulted in the death of five Pakistani citizens. The prime minister reaffirmed Pakistan's political, diplomatic and moral support to the Kashmiris.
