India Today group’s female associate producer and journalist, Nida Khan, has received death threats from a Pakistani Twitter handle. The Pakistani Twitter user had taken to Twitter to threaten Nida Ahmad of ‘beheading’ her after she extended her support to India’s decision to abrogate Article 370.
The Pakistani Twitter user abused the TV anchor and threated to behead her as he wrote that he was somewhere in India and would make sure he beheads her soon.
She has earlier too, received several death threats. However, after this message, Nida finally approached the Noida police and filed a case in the Sector-20 police station. SHO Rajbir Singh Chauhan taking cognisance of the complaint said that the cyber cell is investigating the case.
Nida Ahmad had anchored a video on Tez channel, a 24-hour Hindi news television channel owned by the TV Today Network, and a sister channel of Aaj Tak, on the occasion of Independence day. In her video, which became the number 1 trending video on Youtube, Ahmad spoke of how Independence Day was celebrated in Jammu and Kashmir after abrogation of Article 370 in the valley.
Before this, Nida Ahmed made it to the headlines for her befitting reply to a rattled Pakistani News anchor, after she appeared to threaten Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Kashmir issue. Mocking Pakistan and Pak anchor Kiran Naaz, dauntless Nida Khan said: “Hum Kashmir mein curfew bhi hatayenge aur Tiranga bhi firanyenge” (We will remove the curfew from Kashmir as well as hoist the tricolour there).
Mocking Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Nida had said that India need not get lessons from a country whose entire economy is dependent on Donkey trade.
Nida Ahmad, who is known for her gutsy attitude, unequivocal anchoring and her fury for terror state Pakistan, had earlier also got similar threats after she criticised terror state Pakistan for the Pulwama attack which claimed the lives of over 40 Indian soldiers.
Pakistan has been completely blown off after India decided to repeal Article 370 which granted a separate status to Jammu and Kashmir state and a subsequent bill aimed to bifurcate the state into two Union Territories. Apart from whining and sulking, Pakistani stooges have infested various social media sites like Twitter with fake and malicious news in an attempt to create an atmosphere of panic in India.
Compelled by this tendency, Arif Alvi, the President of the parody country Pakistan, had also taken to the micro-blogging site for spreading disinformation regarding the Kashmir situation for which Twitter served him a notice yesterday.
