Nidhi Sethi, Deputy News Editor of NDTV, had posted a comment on Facebook which seemed to glorify the terror attack by Jaish-e-Muhammad. She had written, “where a grisly 44 has been proven to be greater than the mythical 56”.

Nidhi Sethi was clearly celebrating the tragic terror attack on Indian security forces in her Facebook post, for which she was severely criticised. The screenshot of the comment immediately went viral on Twitter, and many people started asking NDTV whether it agrees with the views of its employee.

At the time of writing this report, the Facebook page of the journalist could not be accessed, which means she has deactivated her account on the social media site. NDTV says further action will be considered by the Disciplinary Committee against the journalist, it will be interesting to see what actions they take.

Nidhi Sethi was not the only Indian celebrating the terrorist attack yesterday, several other such comments have surfaced on social media from various persons. A student from Aligarh Muslim University had posted the following Tweet, celebrating the terror attack.
