Station to launch Feb. 5 to counter propaganda

NEW DELHI — Pakistan plans to establish a television station in its part of disputed Kashmir “to counter Indian propaganda,” according to Pakistani Information Minister Sheikh Rashid.

He told reporters in Islamabad that the station will launch Feb. 5 in the Himalayan state, divided between India and Pakistan and claimed by both.

Islamabad has allocated 400 million rupees ($7 million) for the project.

“With their own TV station, the Kashmiris will be able to fight their case more effectively and counter Indian propaganda,” Rashid says. “We want to promote and introduce the Kashmiri language, culture and tourism and social activities across the world.”

While there is no TV station in Pakistani Kashmir, people in border areas can pick up India’s TV channels.
