Journalist Yana Mir Denounces Comparison to Malala Yousafzai, Claims Harassment at Delhi Airport

Muzaffarabad ( Azadi Times): Yana Mir, a journalist hailing from Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir, made headlines once again after delivering a powerful speech in the UK Parliament, rejecting comparisons to Malala Yousafzai and asserting her freedom and safety in India.

However, her recent experience upon arrival at Delhi airport has sparked controversy, as she claims to have faced harassment by customs officials.

Mir alleges that upon checking her bags at Delhi airport, customs officials accused her of being a “brand smuggler.” Despite denying any intention of seeking special treatment, Mir criticized the interrogation, describing it as dictatorial and unnecessary.

In addition to her personal ordeal, Mir took the opportunity to address broader issues in her statement. She urged the media to refrain from dividing people over the Jammu and Kashmir conflict and criticized Pakistan’s propaganda efforts. Mir vehemently defended India’s image and emphasized the need for a more balanced and nuanced portrayal of the region’s complexities.

The incident at Delhi airport has reignited debates about freedom of expression and journalistic integrity in India. Mir’s experience serves as a reminder of the challenges faced by journalists, particularly those who dare to speak out against prevailing narratives.

As the story continues to unfold, it highlights the importance of upholding journalistic principles and protecting the rights of individuals to express their views without fear of reprisal.

Mir’s courage in speaking out against injustice serves as a beacon for journalists striving to uphold the truth in an increasingly polarized media landscape.
