On the 12th of July, Kher sparked outrage by sharing an image, reportedly from the 1990s, of children covered in blood and captioning it, “butchered bodies of Kashmiri Pandits killed by terrorists”.

To his post, the social media users lambasted him for sharing an old image, apparently from the 1998 Wandhama massacre, amid such tense and sensitive times in the Valley.

Kashmir has seen violent protests over the last few days after the Hizbul Mujahideen Commander, Burhan Wani, was killed in an encounter. Since then, curfew has been imposed in the city and at least 34 people have been killed and several hundreds injured after clashes with security forces.
