About Greater Kashmir Newspaper
Greater Kashmir is the leading Indian English language newspaper printed daily from Srinagar, the summer capital of the state of Jammu and Kashmir in India. The newspaper started publication in the 1987 as a weekly newspaper. Greater Kashmir was the first English language newspaper from the Kashmir Valley.
Greater kashmir follows an adulterated Kashmiri nationalism and criticizes both the Pakistani and Indian Governments as well as the J&K State Government and pro-Pakistan separatists. It has spoken out against atrocities by Indian security forces and Pakistani militants. The paper went through some very rough moments in the initial stages when it was banned by the authorities as well as by pro-Pakistan militants. The state government stopped issuing advertisements, and political parties used their own means of coercing and gagging it. The paper's staunch advovcation of Kashmiri nationalism obviously does not go down well with many powerful people in both India and Pakistan, and they are afraid because the paper's main readership consists of the urban educated middle-class Kashmiris.
