How many Fahads will you arrest, asks Mehbooba following Journalist’s detention

Fahad Shah

Srinagar: Soon after the arrest of a Kashmiri journalist Fahad Shah by the Jammu and Kashmir police for allegedly uploading anti-national content on social media, the PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said that the journalist’s work depicts the ground reality “unpalatable to the Government of India”.

“Standing up for the truth is deemed anti national. Showing the mirror to a deeply intolerant & authoritarian government is also anti national. Fahad’s journalistic work speaks for itself & depicts the ground reality unpalatable to GOI. How many Fahad’s will you arrest?”( sic), Mehbooba wrote on her Twitter handle.

Earlier, police in a statement said that it was reliably learnt by Pulwama Police that some Facebook users and portals have been uploading anti-national content including photographs, videos and posts with criminal intention to create fear among the public and the content so uploaded can provoke the public to disturb law and order.
