India's colonial occupation of Kashmir and its deception and lies

--Nasir Khan, August 12, 2019

India has never liked someone telling the truth about Kashmir that became the Indian-administered Kashmir in 1947, but in reality was the Indian-occupied Kashmir. Since then, the Indian Government in New Delhi has consistently followed the strategy to malign those people or news agencies that said something that went against the official Indian version. That strategy is still in place, and used by the present Hindutva government under the premiership of Narendra Modi.
At present what India is doing in Jammu and Kashmir is to keep a heavy lid on the events reaching the outside world. Within Kashmir India has a tight military control by employing around 800, 000 soldiers. The Indian leaders and officials keep on fooling the world public opinion with their deceptive lies and false information. Even in this extremely hard conditions they face, the people of Kashmir, men, women, and young children are protesting and resisting the Hindutva fascists. But these people face the full wrath of the occupying army.

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), widely respected for its integrity, on Sunday countered the Indian authorities' allegations that its reports on Kashmir were inaccurate or misleading.

In a statement, the BBC said that it stands by its report and emphasised that it was covering the situation in the Valley "impartially and accurately".
According to a BBC report, "Despite the unprecedented security lockdown, thousands of people demonstrated in Srinagar and were met with live fire, tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets."

"The BBC stands by its journalism and we strongly refute any claims that we have misrepresented events in KAshmir. We are covering the situation impartially and accurately," the BBC said in a statement.

"Like other broadcasters, we are currently operating under severe restrictions in Kashmir but we will continue to report what is happening," it added.
