The official Facebook page of Jammu and Kashmir ‘JK Information’ uploaded the pictures of Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s coffin flanked by his supporters and dignitaries and cabinet ministers including Home Minister Ranjnath Singh with smileys and emoticons added on it.
Don’t believe? Here is the proof:
The Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed passed away on Thursday at AIIMS, New Delhi and later the Facebook page of Jammu and Kashmir Information Department – that handles communication of government to press and public – uploaded a number of images of Sayeed’s coffin with smileys and text saying ‘Nice one’. Shameful indeed.
A number of viewers criticized this insensitive behavior of Information department towards the mourning in the state. The pictures stayed on Facebook for eight long hours and were deleted this morning with a status update attributing this mistake to “some insensitive fellows who compromised the security of the page.
