Congress, CPI demand ban on Pak, Saudi channels in Kashmir


Retorting to the reports of Pakistani and some other TV channels being aired in Kashmir which are allegedly indulging in anti-India propaganda, the Congress Party on Saturday urged the Centre to take cognizance of the situation and stop the telecast of such “provocative content”.

Congress leader PL Punia demanded that the Union Government should take action stringent against the guilty.

“Situation in Jammu and Kashmir is very vulnerable and fragile and in such conditions airing of such channel is dangerous.

Treading similar paths, Communist Party of India (CPI) urged foreign media to not meddle in internal affairs of India.

“I strongly condemn this. Foreign media should not meddle in our affairs and should not take anti-India position. It s highly objectionable and we strongly disapprove the airing of such anti-India versions in Jammu and Kashmir which is in great turmoil,” CPI leader D Raja told ANI.
