Siddiqui, who studied journalism at Jamia Millia Islamia’s AJK Mass Communication Research Centre, was associated with Reuters. He was a recipient of the Pulitzer Prize.

He has covered situations around the world over the span of many years. Some of his finest photographs are related to Delhi pogrom, workers’ migration in India and Rohingya refugees.

His demise has sent shockwaves among journalists and media workers. Senior journalists have expressed their grief over the same.

Rana Ayyub wrote on Twitter that Danish was one of the most dedicated journalists. ”Pursued his most passionate obsession, his love for the camera, capturing the truth however dangerous. You left too soon bhai,” she added.

  1. RIP.
    MM is not covering Afghanistan related news. Islamic extremist ideology is an open secret now. Talibani muslims are killing muslims… very bad to see downfall of muslim community all over the world.. especially women.

    • Secular Hindu aka Lying stinker Hindu gutter rat,

      You HIndu sh1teaters are hopelessly stupid, even when you lies. MM is covering this Afghanistan related story, in whose comment section you are trolling, you retarded cow piss drinker. LOL! What a grade A bastard you are. Just a couple off weeks ago you were supporting terrorism against Afghans in a different article and now you pretend you care about Muslims? Dirty filthy Hindu maggot IT cell trolls don’t fool anybody. Afghanistan is in chaos because of the American led NATO invasion. Why are you Hindus selling your kidneys and renting your mothers to get work visas in Muslim countries to clean our toilets? Hmm? You should eat our sh1t too so you can evolve in a human being. We see Hindus killing each other every day over caste and politics. Whats your excuse? Oh yeah the Brahmin creating caste system of slavery which is crime against humanity and why Hinduism is a grand failure since no no wants to be part of superstitious animal worshipping filth…no religion treats women as badly as hinduism where rape and inhumanity are very common.

      India can only progress once Hinduism is flushed down the toilet.

  2. He was not killed in clashes. He was murdered by the Taliban as killing of mediapersons is a war crime. But, due to MM’s idealogical views, such a crime will be whitewashed quite easily. Poor Danish has become expendable in muslims eyes, if the reason he died were somone related to the BJP, MM would have a sore throat crying wolf from the site for 2 to 3 weeks claiming Muslims are in danger.
    May his soul RIP, as even his own people won’t ask for justice due to their self censorship of speaking against the Taliban.😢😢😢😢
    🕉️ shanti to his soul once again.

    • Maggoty Kalia ak OPIndia Hindu fake news,

      As if anyone believes in the crocodile tears of Hindu hate mongers like you. How do you who killed Danish Siddiqui? Thats not what International media is saying. Were you there? Ofcourse not, you are lying and spinning this to pretend that you care what happens to a Muslim while trolling this website exposing the reality Hindu extremism and terrorism against Muslims in India. As if you RSS scum have no ideological agenda of your own. You’re just upset that America is leaving so that ends Indian ambitions in Afghanistan. Gandus pretending to care about Danish Siddiqui while only calling for murdering Indian Muslim.
      Censorship is what Hindus are doing all over social media to silence the voices of truth and dissent in India…including threatening and killing journalists like Gauri Lankesh. Trying to hide the reality of real Covid numbers to protect the image of the dogs Modi and Yogi. Shanti will come to India when Hindu extremists and terrorists are executed.

      • When Gauri lankesh died, the mayor of Bangalore was a Congressi. the state government was a congress government. Funny how no one ever asks them any questions. Or is it because of Muslims bootlicking loyalty to the congress party which borders on slavery to them ???

  3. So, Muslims fighting Muslims and innocent Muslims getting murdered in between ??
    I mean, what has changed after all these years ??
    Muslims (not Islam) are a constant threat to regional and world peace.

    • Talk about a contextless, facile public display of ignorant prejudiced bile?

      Great Game, CHANAKYAN policies etc not even mentioned, not forgetting the library that amused Howdy Modi pal Trump…

        • Kuttar Goo aka Hindu street rat aka Maggoty kalia,

          Oh look its the bhakari bhangi trolls again. Forget petrol, Hindu monkey worshippers can’t even afford oxygen while covid does its magic on monkey mela sadhu super spreaders, What punctures? the ones the Miya bhais left in your ma ki chut? Or the puncture left in your pocket after you rented her out to raise enough to get a work visa to a Muslim country to clean our toilets?

    • Katter goo,

      The usual Hindu cow piss drinking nonsense. Who attacked and invaded Afghanistan in the first time, you lying gutter monkey? Lying is as natural to the Hindu as maggot eggs in sh1t, Hindus kill Hindus all the time, even in times of space based on their inhuman Brahmin caste system. Hindus can’t live in peace with Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs, and even fellow Hindus. Primitive savages who fought each other for centuries even Muslim had to bring order and civilization to what became India. Hindus are a cancer, they bring nothing with hatred and filth wherever they go. Can’t expect intelligence and honesty from monkey worshippers smearing cow sh1t on each other for Covid protection.

      • First, the Soviets, then the Americans, then the Taliban, then NATO, and now the Taliban again with the help of ISI and Pakistan. Of course, Hindus can’t live in peace with Abrahamic people. Hence, the nation is only for Dharmic people, hence all Muslims, Christians, and Jews( there are not any left ) are requested to leave, especially Mr.Black, a bigoted cock-sucking man who worships a desert cult whose leader raped a 6 yr old girl and made her his first wife. Such desert cults are not required in this land.
