Another user shared Mahindra blocked him on twitter for asking questions regarding Yaseen’s invitation and calling him secular.
Yasin Malik was invited as a “Youth Icon” at India Today Conclave (2008). When I questioned Anand Mahindra, who presided the panel, for calling him “secular”“peaceful” he blocked me on twitter. Yasin Malik is a terrorist. Conclave video👇 #TheKashmirFiles https://t.co/Qpu1Z3zs1b

In case you don’t know who Yaseen Malik is, let us tell you that he was one of the militants behind killing 4 officials of the Indian Air Force on 25th January 1990. This was the time when Hindus in Kashmir were killed and shot down.
Yaseen was one of the main accused of it. He was also involved in funding militants and terrorists. Malik also opposed the building of homes for Kashmiri Pandits in 2015. At present, Malik is in Tihar Jail on charges of murder.
