Pakistan strongly condemns targeted killing of Kashmiri journalist

Senior Journalist and Editor-In-Chief of Rising Kashmir, Shujat Bukhari and his personal security guard were killed by unknown gunmen at Press Enclave here on Thursday evening. They were taken to the nearest hospital. "He will be missed", he said on Twitter.

It was not immediately clear how many gunmen attacked Bukhari, who earlier worked with The Hindu newspaper as its Kashmir correspondent.

Bukhari described the threat to Kashmiri journalists in a 2016 article for BBC News.

-Reporters Without Borders, an worldwide NGO that promotes freedom off press, had once told ifex.org that in 2006, as Bukhari left his office (then The Indian Express) in Srinagar, he was abducted by two men who drove him several kilometres away from the city.

Shujaat Bukhari was given police protection since an attack on him in 2000.

"He was a fearless heart who fought fearlessly for justice and peace in Jammu & Kashmir", Mr. Gandhi added.


"Assassination of #ShujaatBukhari is a brutal attack on freedom of press". My condolences to his family.

The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) report released in December last year said that the media in Jammu and Kashmir has "walked the razor's edge" for the past 30 years, facing pressures from all sides of the conflict.

In a statement, the Editors Guild of India condemned the assassination of Bukhari. He was instrumental in organising conferences for peace in Kashmir.

The killing came hours after the UN's human rights office called for an independent inquiry into human rights violations in both parts of Kashmir, run respectively by India and Pakistan.

India has long accused Pakistan of training and arming militants and helping them infiltrate across the heavily militarized Line of Control (LoC) that separates the two sides in the region, a charge Islamabad denies.
