India criticised Pakistan for glorifying terrorist Burhan Wani and Ministry of External Affairs stated that Pakistan’s terror support and sponsorship need to be condemned by 'one and all'.

On Twitter, MEA Spokesperson Gopal Baglay on Sunday tweets Pakistan's terror support and sponsorship need to be condemned by 'one and all'.

External Affairs MinistrySpokesman Gopal Baglay said, " First @ForeignOfficePk read from 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 chiefGen 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.

Authorities on Saturday clamped curfew in three towns and imposed severe restrictions in the rest of Kashmir to foil a plan by separatists to hold a rally to mark the first anniversary of the killing of militant commander Burhan Wani.
