ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – While Pakistan is mourning the Quetta blast which claimed over 70 lives on Monday, some Indian journalists ridiculously congratulated each other calling the terrorist attack a “Response for supporting Kashmir”.

According to renowned journalist Hamid Mir, Indian journalist Nitin Joshi tweeted: “India Kashmir/Wani supporters…congrats4enabling Quetta blast.”

He also wrote a similar tweet to another Indian journalist Ram Guha, saying: “congrats for Quetta blast.”

On the occasion, Mir also aired several other tweets of the Indian media persons which carried similar contents.


Indian forces had killed a pro-freedom fighter, Burhan Wani, in an encounter last month. The killing triggered a fresh wave of protests across Indian-held Kashmir and so far Indian forces have killed over 60 people leaving thousands of others wounded.

It may also be noted here that Pakistan has always condemned the terrorist attacks in India, including the January’s Pathankot attack which, according to New Delhi, was planned by a Pakistan-based group.
