"Pakistan should call its ambassador back from India and expel its from Islamabad," PTI quoted the LeT founder as saying. He claimed that Pakistan is an advocate of Kashmiris and this gesture will give Kashmiris a boost.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on July 15 declared slain Hizbul commander Burhan Wani as a "martyr" and said July 19 will be observed as black day to express solidarity with people of Kashmir.

Curfew was imposed in the valley on July 9 to control large scale violence following the death of 22 year old Burhan Wani.
