Note on Tweet by Tarek Fatah
Coming from people like Tarek Fatah this would be instantly set aside as usual (Hindu) right wing propaganda. Carefully collected hard evidence would be needed for the national (i.e., English) and international media to take note of such things.
Indian English media cannot verify this on its own. They are welcome in the Valley only if they go to search for victims of counter-insurgency, but not if they go to ascertain growing extremism etc.
Indeed, the real and enduring success of militancy has been the introduction of an information chasm and consequent control over the narrative through selective release of information to the outside world and control over the information disseminated within Kashmir.
On a day when both a police constable and a civilian protester died, a leading English language newspaper published from Srinagar described the constable more or less as a morally corrupt person and the protester as a pious Muslim, who did not accept water before death as it was not yet time for iftar. The newspaper did not have journalists on the spot in either cases. So, someone is feeding these dichotomous images of corrupt state oppressing pious people.
