ISLAMABAD - Top Kashmiri journalist becomes victim of Modi government fascist regime in India.
Another prominent Kashmiri journalist fell victim to the Modi-led government’s ongoing clampdown on the people of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir since the revoking of special status of its only Muslim-majority state on August 5.
As the crippling lockdown in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) nears a month, journalists in the disputed region complain of harassment by authorities, with many accusing security forces of deleting their camera footage and a pressure to report “normalcy”.
According to a report published in *The Print*, journalist-author Gowhar Geelani who recently re-joined *Deutsche Welle, *the German news agency, as an editor claimed that he was stopped from travelling to Bonn at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi.
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) on August 16 said in its report link that Indian authorities had detained at least two journalists in the occupied valley and urged to immediately stop its harassment of journalists amid tensions and the communications blackout in the region.
