Ved Bhasin, man who is credited for institutionalizing journalism in Kashmir is no more. Born on May 1, 1929, Ved Bhasin was founder of daily Kashmir Times. The reports reaching this office suggest that Mr Bhasin breathed his last Thursday evening. He was not well for long time after suffering paralytic attack and was confined to wheel chair for his movement.
A passionate advocate of justice, peace, and human rights, Ved Bhasin was highly respected in the journalistic circles for his professional integrity and intellectual acumen.
Mr Bhasin took a very keen interest in the political sphere of Jammu & Kashmir.
