New Delhi: A Delhi-based journalist associated with the news channel NDTV has been suspended for putting up an objectionable post on her Facebook page about the Pulwama terror attack.

Deputy News Editor of NDTV, Nidhi Sethi, can be clearly seen to be supporting the banned terrorist outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) through her post, having used a hashtag #HowstheJaish (Jaish-e-Mohammed).

This has come under heavy fire on social media with netizens slamming he act of glorifying the terror attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) bus in Pulwama that left at least 40 jawans dead. It was the biggest attack on the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

Sethi had written, “Where a grisly 44 has been proven to be greater than the mythical 56.” With this, she added the hashtag #HowstheJaish. This is the same hashtag which is being used by other symphatisers of the Pakistan-based terror outfit.

An Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) student, Basim Hilal, has also been expelled and an FIR registered against him for using the same hashtag with his Twitter post.

The NDTV announced through its official Twitter handle that the news organisation strongly condemns the comments made by Sethi. She has been suspended for two weeks, while the company’s disciplinary committee weighs further action against the deputy editor.

Sethi’s act has not only left the netizens fuming, they are also demanding action against the news channel.
