Media watchdog One Free Press Coalition just included Kashmiri photojournalist Masrat Zahra in its June list of the ten most urgent cases of journalists under attack. Coming only a month after two other Kashmiri photojournalists were awarded the Pulitzer, hopefully this will provide them some protection from the Indian Army even though it will incite Indian propagandists to higher volumes of vituperation. Kashmiri journalists should be recognized for their extraordinary courage in reporting under occupation & we must raise our voices to defend them.
