Kashmiris in India blame media for revenge attacks

After last week’s attack in Indian-administered Kashmir, Kashmiris living in India say that both social and traditional media are driving violence against them.

Many Kashmiris working and studying in India have been harassed, threatened and assaulted since last week’s suicide bombing against Indian troops in Indian-administered Kashmir.

Many feel that the media has helped stoke the violence and have criticised Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not criticising attacks on Kashmiris.
