BAGH: Shujat Bukhari was a great journalist and a brave son of soil, said the AJK Minister for Information, Tourism, Sports, and Youth Affairs, Raja Mushtaq Ahmed Minhas here on Monday. He expressed this in his special released on the eve of second martyrdom anniversary of renowned journalist, Shujat Bukhari. Despite worst brutalities of Indian forces, Shujat Bukhari kept on bravely covering all the incidents, he added. Mushtaq Minhas said that Indian agencies targeted Shujat Bukhari cowardly and tried to suppress the voice of truth by bullet. Pen can never be suppressed by a gun, he added. He said that Indian government is working on the agenda of genocide of Muslims in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK). Indian brutalities have worsened the IOK’s situation. But, India should understand the fact that such tactics cannot suppress the voice of Kashmiris for their right to self-determination, he further said.
