Indian Held Kashmir as most Dangerous Place for Journalists
Occupied Kashmir is one of the most dangerous places of the world where people associated with the press and media are carrying out their professional duties in the most difficult situation.
According to Kashmir Media Service, on the occasion of the World Press Freedom Day, today, ten journalists have been confirmed as being killed while performing their duties during Kashmiris' ongoing liberation struggle since 1989. They included Shabbir Ahmad Dar, Mushtaq Ali, Ghulam Muhammad Lone, Ghulam Rasool Azad, Muhammad Shaban Wakeel, Pervez Muhammad Sultan, Mushtaq Ahmad and a woman scribe, Aasia Jeelani.
The report said that in the occupied territory, almost routinely, the journalists face manhandling, abductions, murder attempts and death threats by Indian troops and all this has made their everyday work extremely difficult.
It revealed that Kashmiri journalists and many other scribes while performing their professional duties were roughed up, injured and detained by the troops on fake charges in the territory.
