Al Jazeera may have to shut down broadcast in India as govt scraps security clearance over IoK documentary
As per the Economic Times, no explanation was given, however, the decision seems to have been triggered from a documentary aired by the channel on freedom fighting in occupied Kashmir that the government said was “biased.”
The security clearance was given to the channel by the Home Ministry on December 3, 2010, and withdrawn on May 29, 2018, as per documents. And now it all depends on the Home Ministry.
The channel told the government in its representation that the documentary on militant networks in Kashmir devoted a substantial 10 minutes to the central government’s efforts and the views of its officials.
In 2015, the channel was suspended for five days because it showed an incorrect map of India with respect to Jammu and Kashmir.
