Pro-Burhan graffiti appear in Srinagar

Notwithstanding the clampdown on communication services imposed in Jammu and Kashmir, defiant protesters have scribbled on walls and public places with pro-Burhan graffiti across Srinagar.

The graffiti have appeared against the backdrop of the government clampdown on Internet and mobile phone services. Anger is also palpable among the youth over the reports of some news channels that claimed the slain Hizb-ul-Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani had had multiple affairs and a girlfriend had given him away.

At the city center Lal Chowk, a graffiti reads “Burhan still in our hearts. Burhan still alive, Leader of resistance, Burhan and Burhan our hero.”

At the SHMS hospital in Srinagar, where most of the injured are being brought from rural areas, a message outside the medical emergency reads, “Burhan aap shaheed huway, hamae kis kae saharae choda?” (Burhan you became a martyr, you have left us alone?).  Two other graffiti in English read “Today we mourn, lion is no more and Burhan always in our heart.”
