JRL slams national media for spreading hate against Kashmir, says no threat to Amarnath yatris

Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Sunday slammed national media for spreading hate and falsehood against Kashmir and said that there is not threat to Amarnath yatris from Kashmiris.
In a statement, the leadership comprising of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik said that Kashmiri people will continue to retain and nourish the tradition of brotherhood and communal amity.
They said Kashmiri people never compromised on their tradition of hospitality, even in the toughest and trying times, and always played a friendly host, whether to a tourist or an Amarnath pilgrim who came to Kashmir.
“Fake news, twisting of facts and projecting villainous pictures of Kashmiri’s has been the modus operandi of these news channels and people of Kashmir and tourists have understood their ulterior motives and nobody is paying heed to their false reporting anymore,” they said.
The leadership said tourists and Amarnath pilgrims visiting Kashmir can go places of their choice and tell the actual ground reality to rest of the people across India and also expose these sections of media who have adopted a jingoistic approach vis-a-vis Kashmir just to get their TRPs high.
“Some brains have always been working behind the scenes and framing policies to keep the people of India away from Kashmir to be able to promote false propaganda about us,” they said. “Yatris and tourists should feel ensured that there is no threat or danger to their lives from Kashmiri’s and that they can perform their religious rituals without any worry.”
The leadership appealed to the pilgrims and tourists not to pay heed to the false propaganda stories being run by a few Delhi-based news channels and instead focus on their Kashmir sojourn without any fear and intimidation.
