“While shooting videos one must always take care of moral ethics. Asking irrelevant question to lady tourist is really big mistake. We can’t crop the line in the cover up of prank. Here the question is about our kashmiryat. Speed beakers are important in life.I think after this incident While shooting videos maximum precautions are taken b4 uploading.” Wrote Altaf Khuroo in the comment section of the video.

“This is what lack of professional content creators have done to us, one needs to be educated before dealing with such sensitive issues, I have been watching prankster’s all over the world since five years, never have I seen such insensitive and irresponsible language used by them in their videos. You should take classes and educate youself about community guidlines before making your videos.” Wrote Sujeel Ahmad in the comment section of the video.
After receiving severe flack, valley’s famous journalist, Sanam Ajaz too called it a dangerous trend in a live debate on his channel.
