“No threat to Kashmiris identity” says Governer. People unsure if he could be trusted

15th Aug, 2019

Governor Satyapal Malik hoisted the Indian flag at Sher-e-Kashmir Stadium in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir. It was for the first time after the removal of Article 370 that the tricolour was hoisted in the valley. On this occasion, Satyapal Malik said that Kashmiris do not have to be worried about their identity. Satyapal Malik said that those who are saying such things that the identity of Kashmiris will be lost, do not try to trick people. The Kashmiri people are close to the heart of the Indian government.

However, people on social media platforms showed their concern and asked if his (Governer’s) “THIS” statement could even be trusted. It is pertinent to mention that Governer SatyaPal Malik had in an interview on 3rd August (2 days before the article 370 was abrogated) mentioned that people should stop propagating rumors about trifurcating the state or Abrogating Article 370.
