BJP leader threatens journalists, asks to 'draw a line'

News Agencies | Updated on: 23 June 2018, 15:38 IST

BJP leader and former minister in Mehbooba Mufti-led government Lal Singh on Friday threatened journalists in Jammu and Kashmir to "draw a line,".

While Addressing a press conference here on Friday, Singh said, "Journalists in Kashmir should draw a line in their journalism. It's up to you how you want to live."

Singh recently resigned from the cabinet after facing a huge backlash for participating in a rally supporting the culprits of gangrape-and-murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua earlier this year.

This statement comes days after Shujaat Bukhari, the 'Rising Kashmir' Editor was shot dead by terrorists in Srinagar's Press Colony.

Bukhari's murder drew a nationwide outrage with many calling it an "attack on the freedom of speech".
