Srinagar: Education Minister, Altaf Bukhari, on Saturday slammed the national media for not showing the “true picture” about Kashmir.
“A national news channel is showing since morning that the house of Mushtaq Chaya, who is a prominent hotelier of Kashmir, has been raided by the NIA team. It is not the truth,” Bukhari told media while speaking about the NIA raids in Kashmir.
Bukhari, who is a senior PDP leader, said the national media wants to put “Kashmir on fire”. “Please allow us to live peacefully. We want peace here. But some news channels want to put Kashmir on fire. They are not showing true picture about the valley,” he said.
Further, he said the facts would come to fore once the investigating agency completes its probe.
“Raids take place everywhere in India. Let investigating agencies complete the probe and then law will take its own course. Both the central and state governments are on the same page,” he added.
