Srinagar, June 30: General Officer Commanding 15 Core, AK Bhatt has said that social media in Kashmir is the biggest challenge and dangerous enemy for them.
General AK Bhatt told news agency CNS that social media is a privilege of democratic system but it is being misused by Pakistan and Hurriyat.
“In Kashmir, Hurriyat and its supporters are misusing the social media. Pakistan also misuses it to create trouble in Kashmir,” he said.
“India is a liberal democracy and that is why everybody is allowed to express himself. But there are elements who are misusing this platform. China has blocked this platform in her own interest, but in India we can’t do this,” General Bhatt said.
He also claimed that some elements in Kashmir are using social media to tarnish the image of soldiers. “The social media users in Kashmir are not portraying the ground reality. They post what suit to them and it is a concern,” General Bhatt said.
