Columnist at Shekhar Gupta’s ThePrint spreads Pakistani and Khalistani propaganda about London protests on Article 370 abrogation

In their bid to oppose Narendra Modi at every step along the way, the so-called liberals in India appear to harbour no hesitation in allying with Khalistanis and Pakistanis.

Columnist associated with Shekhar Gupta’s ThePrint, Zainab Sikander, has resorted to using the protests by Pakistani immigrants and Khalistanis in Britain to peddle her agenda against the abrogation of Article 370. She has dubbed protests held by Pakistanis and Khalistanis a “movement by the people for the people of Kashmir”.

Even after people pointed out to her that the people in the video were Khalistanis, Zainab attempted to brazen it out instead of offering an unconditional apology.

In other videos of the Pakistani protests shared by the same media outlet, Pakistani flags are clearly visible which betray the actual motivations of the protesters.

However, according to Zainab, attempts to enlighten her with the truth are ‘characfter assassination’.

As we have reported earlier, thousands of Pakistani immigrants in London resorted to violence on Thursday to mark their protest against abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir. Protesters carrying Khalistani and Kashmiri flags tried to push forward across police lines and pelted stones and other objects at Indians who were present at the spot to celebrate the Independence day.

They held anti-India placards and abused Indians present at the Indian High Commission. Indian families with small children were trapped for hours as the protestors held them as hostages. However, according to ThePrint columnist, these protests were a “movement by the people for the people of Kashmir”.

ThePrint’s coverage of the Kashmir issue has been dubious at best. Shekhar Gupta had claimed that protests in Kashmir are Pakistan’s best hope, then went ahead to ask the Indian government to lift restrictions so protests can be organized.

Indian intellectuals have been toeing the Pakistani line on international platforms as well. ‘Eminent Historian’ Ramchandra Guha had written an article for the Washington Post that peddled a narrative which was virtually indistinguishable from the Pakistani version of events.

It appears as though the so-called Indian liberals are almost overeager to undermine Indian national interests. In their bid to oppose Narendra Modi at every step along the way, they appear to harbour no hesitation in allying with Khalistanis and Pakistanis.
