“NIA raids on human rights activist Khurram Parvez and Greater Kashmir office in Srinagar is yet another example of GOIs vicious crackdown on freedom of expression and dissent. Sadly, NIA has turn into BJPs pet agency to intimidate and browbeat those who rubbish to fall in line,” Mehbooba wrote.

The office of newspaper Greater Kashmir used to be one of the most 10 locations raided by the agency on Wednesday morning. Slamming the move that throttles freedom, Mufti wrote, “At a time when J&K’s land & resources are being plundered, GOI wants media publications to write op-eds approximately diabetes & yoga. In BJP’s ‘all is mannered’ charade, truth is the biggest casualty. Any journalist unwilling to turn into part of Godi media is targeted.”
