Experts and intellectuals at a workshop on “Modi’s Hindutva Policy, Bleeding Kashmir and Response of Pakistani Media” here on Thursday observed that media had played an active role in exposing the Indian aggressive and hegemonic designs and apprising the international community of the motives behind the Indian ruling party’s Hindutva policy.
The workshop was organized by Pakistan Broadcasting Academy in collaboration with Pakistan Television, Associated Press of Pakistan, and the National Press Club for editors and journalists attached with the state and private media houses.
Director Administration, Radio Pakistan, Mahmood-ul-Hassan Akhtar was the chief guest while senior Vice President, National Press Club, Islamabad Dr. Sadia Kamal and Kashmiri leader Abdul Hameed Lone were guests of honor at the concluding ceremony.
Addressing the participants, Lone said that since the lockdown of Indian-occupied Kashmir in August last year, the Kashmiri people had been totally cut off from the outer world, and foreign media had no access to the held territory. However, Pakistan’s state media particularly Radio Pakistan and Pakistan Television are the only source for apprising the besieged people of the latest developments around the world, and the solidarity being worldwide expressed with the Kashmiri people.
In an emotional tone with tearful eyes, Lone said that our Kashmiri mothers, sisters and daughters were being raped by the occupation forces as part of Modi’s Hindutva policy.
