Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and NC vice president Omar Abdullah on Saturday said that “It seems Shujaat’s death is now a tool for goons to use to threaten other journalists.”
Taking to his widely followed twitter handle Omar wrote: “Dear journalists, your colleagues in Kashmir just got threatened by a @BJP4India MLA. It seems Shujaat’s death is now a tool for goons to use to threaten other journalists.(sic)”
Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former minister in PDP-BJP government, Chaudhary Lal Singh warned the journalists of Kashmir of “Shujaat-like incident.”
Singh while addressing a press conference in Jammu, said that journalists in Kashmir have created the wrong atmosphere about the Kathua case. Now, I would like to ask them to draw a line of journalism and think about how to live.
“Are they waiting for a similar incident that has happened with “Basharat”, referring to Shujaat,” Singh said.
