Media being pressurised to conform to official narrative on Pakistan: Indian journalist ISLAMABAD: Journalists in India are being pressurised to conform to the official narrative of hate-mongering against Pakistan.  A renowned journalist Ravish Kumar told a German TV channel that those who did not comply had faced public ridicule on social media. He said the Indian media were not reporting on the Pakistan-India conflict as much as they were using the conflict as an excuse to build up the ruling party’s electoral prospects in the upcoming general elections. He said that the intention of this warmongering was to polarise people and consolidate votes.
