SRINAGAR: Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has strongly condemned the banning of more than 30 cable TV channels by authorities, terming the decision as “fascist”.
A JKDFP spokesperson in a statement said, “This indicates the evil designs of authorities towards Muslims because all the banned channels belonged to Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and are known among Muslims of the world as most of them used to telecast religious stuff only.”
“Such authoritarian measures only add fuel to the fire. The irony is that people are even denied their basic rights and they are now directed to watch selective TV channels. However, people of Jammu Kashmir have always faced such dictatorial measures with patience and steadfastness which has been a key to their continuous resistance,” the spokesperson said.
