Even as most parts of Srinagar and other districts have been under strict restrictions since Saturday, graffiti have been spotted at many places here. 

‘Burhan is our hero’, says one writing on the shutter of a shop in Amira Kadal near the city centre of Lal Chowk, which has been shut since Saturday.

On an adjacent shop, the words ‘today we mourn, lion is no more’ have been written with spray paint. 

‘Burhan still alive’, is yet another such graffiti that has come up in the city along with the words ‘AK-47’ referring to the assault rifle which Wani used to brandish in his pictures and videos on social media. 

Such graffiti were spotted in the past as well during the protests of 2008 and 2010 and after the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru in 2013.
