On 14th February 2019, The Jaish-e-Mohammad attacked the convoy of CRPF Jawans (Pulwama Terrorist Attack) where we lost 42 CRPF Jawans along with many causalities. On one hand, where our brave soldiers sacrificed their lives for their motherland and attained martyrdom, some people made objectionable comments against Martyred CRPF Jawans.
NDTV Suspends Deputy News Editor
The first incident came in limelight when the Deputy News Editor of NDTV, Nidhi Sethi made an objectionable comment on the martyrdom of 42 CRPF Personnel. She made a Facebook Post with the content
“Where a grisly 44 has been proven to be greater than the mythical 56 #HowstheJaish “
In Hindi, the post means “56 की तुलना में 44 ज्यादा भारी पड़ गया “. Here the hashtag #HowstheJaish is built as a parody of the slogan #HowsTheJosh which was used in the movie URI: The Surgical Strike. The screenshot of the FB post is shown below.
In the post, she can be clearly seen supporting the banned Terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). But soon her Facebook post was criticized on social media; she was forced to delete the Post. However, NDTV considers this as an objectionable comment for our Soldiers, hence it suspended Nidhi from the Deputy News Editor post for 2 weeks. NDTV has also shared a tweet sharing its condolence for the martyrs and the offense made by the Deputy News Editor.
AMU Suspends Student:
Another incident is from Aligarh Muslim University where one of the students was suspended for his objectionable tweet on the Pulwama Terror Attack. The Mathematics student made a tweet on his Twitter wall that says,
How’s the Jaish? Great Sir #Kashmir
Under Section 153A of the IPC and Section 67A of the IT Act, he has been booked. The Aligarh Muslim University has also suspended the student under sections of its AMU Students’ Conduct & Discipline Rules, 1985.
Pakistan No more Most-Favoured Nation:
As an attack against the Pulwama Terrorist Attack, India has withdrawn the ‘Most Favored Nation’ status from Pakistan. As per the experts, this step to withdraw the status will harm Pakistan to some extent. The relation and trade between India and Pakistan will be affected. With the removal of the MFN status to Pakistan, India will start imposing additional duties and charges on the goods which will undoubtedly harm the economy of Pakistan, however, it will not harm much.
The terrorists have made a big mistake. They will have to pay a “Heavy Price”.
