An analysis carried out by security agencies have indicated that these papers, Urdu and English, have been taking an anti-India stand in the Valley, Economic Times reported. A survey has pointed out that the contents in these publications are “detrimental to national interest,” the report added.
A final decision on the matter will be taken after The Directorate of Advertising and Visual Publicity holds consultations with the Information & Broadcast Ministry.
