Srinagar: An assessment report prepared by the government of India over the situation prevailing in the Kashmir Valley has suggested a need to control media, mosques and madrasas, reported Indian Express.
As per the report though the government report has not made any reference to Pakistan, it has suggested the need to control of the mosque, madrasa, print and TV media, strengthening of intelligence set-up and reaching out to the moderate faction of Hurriyat Conference.
The report, compiled after securing inputs from the ground, suggests long-term “actionable points” and has been sent to National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval, the report said quoting sources.
The Centre’s report has also listed TV channels as pro and anti-India and newspapers that it says should be promoted for ‘perception management’. It also stated that the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting needed to revive its Jammu and Kashmir division that is largely defunct.
