Yaseen Mir

Community Correspondent Yaseen Mir hails from Baramulla District, an area that has been at the heart of militant uprisings in Kashmir. In the coverage of these conflicts, what hasn’t been documented is their impact on rural communities like Yaseen’s. Here, every aspect of life is lived out in the shadow of a conflict zone where hundreds have gone missing, have been widowed, or have had their lives halted. Yaseen will be documenting these, as he feels that the Indian media is not interested in ‘the lives of common people’. Yaseen has been involved with the J&K Right to Information Movement and works extensively on highlighting issues of health, public education that his community faces.
