Indians call out media for ‘spreading hate’ amid Pakistan-India tensions
Ever since the Pulwama attack that killed more than 40 Indian troops, India’s television news networks have been beating the drum of war and now Indians have called out their media for spreading hate amid escalations of tension between Pakistan and India.
Social media users posted pictures of journalists, who rallied for war, with captions “boycott fake media” and “boycott hate speech”.
One user wrote: “All these traitors of India should be tried for treason whenever there is a change in Government! #GaddarList”
