Abid Bashir (Wani)

About Me: 

For past twenty years of perpetual strife, the story tellers of Kashmir are facing a hard battle to report from a hostile place with an unending search for peace and the to report the truth was not a cake walk. It has been a costly affair and still continues to be.
As, I have covered all important beats like politics, violence, environment, education and the like from the past seven years, many of my human interest and human rights stories have created very powerful impact on the policy makers and the like. There has been instances, where I had been caught between extremes in society with regular pressure from all those involved in the conflict to report from the point of view of the government or the opposition. This recalls me of to being ‘bark for our community’. . .

My Passions: 
To exercise the freedom of expression despite all dilemmas and non-democratic set up.
My Challenges: 
Telling the truth in most pressing times.
My Vision for the Future: 
To share the stories of my land with a blunt account with straightforward scene constructions and realistic characterization...So, I want to speak for myself which encompasses everything around me.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Politics at large, including Human rights and Developmental reportage.
My Languages: 
English, Urdu
