We are back with another episode of ‘The Opindia Recap’ by Sham Sharma, an MBA student at the Roosevelt University, Chicago and a sales professional.
Kashmir is the topic that everyone seems to have an opinion. Especially the usual suspects like ‘The Quint’ who more often than not, have a view that stands contrary to the Nation’s interests.
‘The Quint’ now has come up with another video that tries its best to pain Kashmiri terrorists as ‘freedom fighters’. The souls who lost their way. In the process, they not only downplay the role of the Indian Army and the severity of terrorism but also do a grave injustice to the civilian population of Kashmir that just wants to earn its bread in peace.
However, this is not the first time ‘The Quint’ has peddled the Pakistani side of the story and indulged in blatant anti-India propaganda. In 2017, a Quint journalist was booked for abetting the suicide of Lance Naik Roy Matthew. In fact, their pussyfooting on Hafeez Saeed is not surprising, considering they had published an entire piece about Osama Bin Laden being a father and a husband. The Quint had also come up with a story that basically declared Kulbhushan Jadhav an ‘Indian spy’ thereby endangering his life and national security. We had rebutted that story threadbare and post massive backlash, The Quint had taken the story down and decided to “recheck its story“, but not before Pakistanis and its official agencies had started quoting The Quint article on Jadhav in an attempt to undermine India’s position.
This video is our attempt to debunk the dangerous narrative on Kashmir furthered by Quint.
