Kashmir Issue and Media Representation
Aadil Altaf Lone
Abstract: Media is said to be the watchdog of democracy. Media plays a decent role in exploring the idea of a common men but in so-called the paradise on earth (Kashmir valley) this thing is missing badly because due to atrocities, barbarism and restrictions, Acts like AFSPA, TADA, JKPSA, bullets and newly invented pellet guns which not only threatened common men but even journalists and human right activists. Media not only helps us in reaching out or solving the hectic problems but it gives confidence and assurance to get the problems solved at local, national and at the international level, but in Kashmir valley things are quite different the media are under the clutches of New Delhi. They not only banned the local media but also blocked the internet service in the valley recently in 2016 which cost a huge loss of both humans and incomes and enlarge the problems of Kashmiris. In Kashmir valley where not only innocent people are being killed but even mass rapes, Sopore shoot out, Gawkadal massacre, Asia-Nelofar rape case, the tragedy of Kunan Poshpora and other things remain dark for rest of the world and such incidents not only lower the morale of security personnel but also loses the images of such media houses which shows such insane acts vertically in opposite directions. Media representation which shows one version of reality but in the valley the government put a continuous ban on media because they not only want to control the tense environment but the reality is that they dont want to disclose the high levels of their barbarism at any level local, national and at international. Media representation means to represents individuals, groups, issues and events but in Kashmiri valley it is different and hectic job because of barbaric behavior of security personals. It is important to note that without media our perception of reality would be very limited and it is a type of recording in which sensory information is described but not in Kashmir valley where everything is decided by New Delhi. In nutshell media is not free and fair in India.
