Kashmiri separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq also took to Twitter and confirmed the reports of celebrations in the restive valley.
Fireworks all around, feels like an early Eid here. Better team took the day. Congratulations team #Pakistan

The Kashmiris who watched the match live on TV took to Twitter and expressed their joy over the victory they termed as ‘Eid’.
The defiant valley came out even more audaciously this time. However, the occupying forces resorted to ruthless firing to terminate the celebrations.
Went out to get more firecrackers but sadly Indian security had gone nuts and were firing indiscriminately in air. Situation bad in Kashmir
