Emojis on Mufti’s Funeral, Govt Apologizes


Jammu: An apology was tendered on the official Facebook page of Jammu and Kashmir government on Friday over the posting of ‘insensitive’ pictures following the Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s demise.

Furious netizens expressed dismay over the posting of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s funeral pictures with emojis as the state mourned over its CM’s death. He succumbed to multi-organ failure on Thursday at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). Interestingly, the concerned department took 12 hours to take notice of the pictures after which the content was removed.
