The things have gone so worse that even India’s own Editors Guild in a statement in New Delhi had to express shock by the causal manner in which the editors of Kashmir based publications are routinely detained by Indian forces’ personnel for reporting. The Editors Guild India referred to the recent detention of Fahad Shah, the editor of a Srinagar-based publication The Kashmir Walla and said that this was the third time that he was detained for his writings.
