Srinagar: In the backdrop of the back-to-back debates being telecast on television channels discussing the situation in Kashmir, a Srinagar-based Kashmiri Pandit body has requested the Government of India (GoI) to put a halt to all kinds of Kashmir centric TV debates.
“May I request all news channel’s in India don’t make resident Kashmiri pandits scapegoats for your TRP, the Kashmiri Pandit Sangarsh Samiti (KPSS), a non-migrant Kashmiri Pandit organization, said on Saturday.
A target rating point or television rating point for televisions is a metric used in marketing and advertising to compare target audience impressions of a campaign or advertisement through a communication medium relative to the target audience population size.
“The body also requests GoI please stop Kashmir centric debates on all news channels if they want we Kashmir citizens in general and resident Kashmiri pandits live peacefully,” it added.
It said that Kashmiri Pandits are being made scapegoats by the TV anchors with their futile discussions just to gain the TRPs.
Earlier, following the civilian killings in Hyderpora Srinagar, the body was of the opinion that killing in any form should be condemned by all, and violence of any kind will not be tolerated.
“Killings in any form should be condemned by all. Let us altogether rise to make it categorical that violence of any kind will not be tolerated,” it said.
