In a major embarrassment to anti-India forces within the country, the Press Club of India on Wednesday refused to provide a platform to members of ‘Tukde Tukde gang’ to spread their propaganda videos and images of Kashmir.

According to Times Now, the Press Club of India refused to allow a group of ultra-left wing activists including freelance protestor Kavita Krishnan, Sonia Gandhi’s former aide Jean Dreze and two other members of the anti-India brigade to spread false propaganda about the status of Kashmir following the abrogation of Article 370.

The ‘activists’ had claimed to have visited the Kashmir to document the status of the union territory of Kashmir following the scrapping of special status. The ultra-left wing lobby had planned a press conference at Press Club of India to release propaganda videos and images to incite the public.

Kavita Krishnan had posted a tweet informing regarding the press conference at the venue along with Jean Drèze, Maimoona Mollah and Vimal Bhai to release a ‘report’ of their 5-day visit to Kashmir, including some photos and video documentation. 

However, the Press Club of India has swiftly strung into action and has now asked them to not to release such reports. Even as the government is trying to bring back normalcy in the Jammu and Kashmir region, these activists are hell bent on portraying a grim picture from the valley, which may lead to instability in the region. The Press Club of India disallowed the videos and pictures since the authenticity of the same cannot be verified on an individual level. While the press conference was allowed to be carried out, screening of videos and images was not allowed.

Amusingly, Congress leader Sushmita Dev referred to it as ‘gagging the press’.

Congress’ support to such propaganda videos come at a time when Pakistan has been using opposition leaders and activists’ statements along with fake and fabricated videos to further their anti-India agenda. Essentially, the hyper activists and other opposition leaders are toeing the Pakistani propaganda line.

As normalcy is prevailing in the Jammu and Kashmir, a certain anti-India establishment within the country seems to be disgruntled and are trying various means to instigate violence against Indians, particularly Hindus in Kashmir.

To add fuel to the fire, some of the sections of Indian political establishment, pseudo-liberal-secular media and intelligentsia are parroting the lines of Pakistan to keep the pot boiling in Kashmir. The Congress party and its ecosystem are hell-bent on inciting the people of Jammu and Kashmir by deliberately toeing the Pakistani line on Jammu and Kashmir.
