New Delhi, Jun 21 (PTI) More soldiers have sacrificed their lives in Kashmir than those who died in various wars since independence, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said today.

She was speaking at an event organised by RSS’s communication wing Indraprastha Vishwa Samvad Kendra (IVSK) here to award journalists.

“More soldiers have sacrificed their lives in the Kashmir Valley so far than the number of security personnel who died in various wars since independence,” she said.

The speaker also asked the media to maintain credibility in their reportage, adding that the Fourth Estate should be unbiased and research before presenting facts.

The sangh’s Akhil Bhartitya Sah Prachar Pramukh, Arun Kumar, said one has started thinking from western perspective.

But now the IVSK is working to change this among journalists, he said.
