Kashmiris left out in the cold

Following a summer of violence in Indian occupied Kashmir, there have been calls for India to grant Kashmiris independence. But if you have watched Indian news coverage of the unrest, this is not the story you would have seen.

Indian media outlets have stuck with the pro-government line and have distanced themselves from reporting the details of the military campaign being carried out by Indian troops. With 700,000 soldiers deployed to the disputed territory – a region known as the battleground between two nuclear-armed states – in our News Divide this week we look closely at a worsening political crisis that fails to get the media attention it deserves.
