Abstract [en]

This research looks at how a small group of young Muslim Kashmiri men perceive their representation in BBC and Al Jazeera news coverage about the Kashmir conflict, with focus on the August 2016 unrest. It is an exploratory study aiming to give insights on how the Kashmiri people and particularly young Muslim Kashmiri men might perceive their proper representation and that of the conflict in foreign news. The research uses a questionnaire method by asking a sample of six Kashmiri men to watch two news video clips covering the 2016 August unrest, one from BBC news and the other from Aljazeera news asking them to answer relevant questions. One of the main findings exists in discovering that although the group of men generally perceived the representation of Kashmiris as positive in the video clips, the general consensus on how truthful the depictions were, proved to be more complex.
