This statement by Kashmiri photojournalist Aasif Shafi is important because of the extreme danger journalists face from the occupying army when they cover hunt to kill operations or protests. As Indian authorities said in the arrest of Kamran Youssef, journalists are not supposed to document Indian human rights crimes; they are supposed to cover wedding parties, religious ceremonies, sports games, non-political funerals. The last thing journalists need is to be impugned for their motives or accused of being informants. Though even photographing protests in the US, I am often asked if I am an undercover police agent so under occupation suspicions must be heightened. You judge a photojournalist by the content of their work & in that regard Aasif’s work speaks for itself.
