Srinagar: “Since last 7 decades, the Indian government has routinized the victimization of the voices of dissent in Jammu and Kashmir, either by arresting the political leaders, activists, journalists and also by imposing various kinds of restrictions. Recently, a young journalist Aasif Sultan has been arrested for one of his stories. This obviously is not the first time Kashmiri journalists or activists have been targeted for their work. This reality in Jammu and Kashmir has been largely ignored or endorsed by the vast sections of opinion makers in India,” this was stated by Spokesperson Jammu Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society (JKCCS) in a statement on Tuesday.
