Malala’s tweets on Kashmir, Pakistani and Indian journalists hot
The curfew, sanctions and a series of curbs in the Indian-administered Kashmir, which has been going on for the last 40 days, have caused political and border tensions between Pakistan and India.
The issue, which has been hitting the background in recent times on social media due to other domestic and international news, once again sparked a debate when Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai from Pakistan hosted the Indian-administered Kashmir. More than one tweet on Saturday about Twitter’s situation.
And in response to this, Indian journalist Barkha Dutt criticized him on Sunday, after which a literal shelling began between Pakistani and Indian journalists.
In her messages on Twitter, Malala wrote while talking about the serious human rights situation in Indian-administered Kashmir, “I am deeply concerned about the information about the four thousand people who have been arrested and sent to jail.” Also about students who have not been to school for more than 40 days and about girls who are afraid to leave home.
“She has spent the last few weeks trying to talk to journalists, human rights activists and students living in Indian-administered Kashmir,” Malala wrote in another tweet.
Malala Yousafzai also called on UN leaders to take steps for the peace of Kashmir and to hear the voices of the people there and to help their children return to school safely.
India’s Twitter users and journalists praised him for the same message that India’s Twitter users criticized. An Indian-based journalist, Barkha Dutt, responded to her on Twitter, writing that ‘Malala was disappointed to see traditional Pakistani statements about Kashmir going forward. While the bitter fact is that they will never be able to return to their country because they have been shot to raise their voices on the rights of girls to go to school there. ‘
After the tweet came from Indian journalist Barkha Dutt, Mahmal Sarfraz, a journalist from Pakistan, replied, “How can this be just a statement from Pakistan?” So are all international human rights organizations wrong, international media institutions are wrong, even newspapers like The Telegraph, The Indian Express and The Hindu are wrong. It is disappointing for Malala to remind her that she cannot return to Pakistan because she has talked about Kashmir.
After that, both the journalists continued to have a sneak peek, and after exchanging a number of tweets, Indian journalist Barkha Dutt replied that ‘she (Malala) can tweet about anything she wants. I can never deny them, you or myself this freedom. I was just pointing to the irony that they were highlighting an issue they did not even have freedom. That’s it. Kashmir is a separate debate. ‘
Meanwhile, Shahla Rashid, a political and social activist from India-based Kashmir, tweeted on Twitter thanking Malala Yousafzai for voicing her distress over Kashmir.
The federal minister of science and technology could not stay away from this debate and he also criticized Barkha Dutt’s tweet.
