Strain on India-Pakistan Relations through Indian Media

Published 2021-03-28


This research scrutinizes the evils and implications of Indian journalistic orientation on the already tensed relationship amongst the two neighbor countries. It aims to research the strain on India-Pakistan relations caused through the Indian media. Employing a qualitative content analysis that is grounded on literature review, news, and selective parts of major issues and certain incidents as case study, the research finds evidence of the manipulation of Indian media in favor of their national propaganda, effectively turning a blind eye towards authenticity, objectivity and balance, which represents the most important prerequisites of covering news and events. This study therefore identifies the potential dangers to the harmony and peace between the two countries, and their alias.
