The Quint’s Journalist In 2012 Had Wondered Why Kasab Was Hanged, Had Compared Him To Indian Army

If one wonders why the coverage of India’s far-left portals is so heavily tilted against India, one only needs to look at the views of the journalists they employ.

A tweet from Jehangir Ali, who now is a Senior Jouranlist with The Quint, has resurfaced. “Kasab killed 17 people in Mumbai and he has been hanged. Indian forces killed 35 innocent people in Bijbehara and they got promoted,” he had tweeted in 2012.

Jehangir Ali, thee years later, had joined the Quint. As per his LinkedIn profile, Jehangir Ali is now a Senior Journalist at the publication. He’s been working with The Quint since 2015, and has written hundreds of articles for the site. Most of his articles are focused around Kashmir.

This isn’t the first time an Indian journalist has shown sympathy for Pakistani terrorists after terror attacks. Last year, Nidhi Sethi, who worked for NDTV, had celebrated the Pulwama terrorist attacks by tweeting “How’s the Jaish.” Sethi had then been suspended by NDTV for her tweet, with the company distancing itself from her views.

This also isn’t the first time that The Quint, whose coverage has often been criticized for being rabidly anti-India, has had its journalists be involved in activities that could be thought to be anti-national. Earlier this year, Rajeev Sharma, who also wrote for The Quint, was arrested on charges of passing defense and strategic information to Chinese intelligence officials.
