Indian TV Channel Times Now recently used CS: GO's player model to depict a terrorist during the prime time news telecast and fans were left in splits.

The news being telecasted revolved around alleged Hizbul Mujahideen Operative Irfan Mir, who conducted pro-Article 370 seminars in Jammu and Kashmir. Article 370 grants special status to Jammu Kashmir under the Constitution of India.

However, on August 5th, 2019, the Government of India issued a constitutional order which superseded the 1954 order.

Debates and arguments regarding the same have been ongoing since its inception. While talking about a pro-Article 370 seminar being conducted by someone with links to Pakistani terrorist organizations, Times Now decided to use a CS: GO player model to depict the alleged terrorist.

u/baxigamer22 was mindful enough to point out another reference between Irfan Mir and CS: GO. No, Nikolay "mir" Bityukov is not the concerned gunslinger on this occasion.

u/MordorsElite went the distance to count all the panels on the screen. With 14 text panels accompanied by five assorted images, ruling out the Adblock theory won't be wise.

u/Anomalina89's got a point. Everyone's probably seen or heard of a "video games make you violent" reference. While u/pelmar007 proves that CS: GO will always have its fair share of admirers.

Talking about regular telecasts on Indian Television, u/LurkerPatrol and u/LegendaryAyser shared their opinion on the topic.

No matter what the intention from the Indian TV Channel was, using a CS: GO player model to depict a terrorist has to be one of the funnier video game references on national TV.
