(Thread) - Today, 5th of August, marks a whole year of high-speed #InternetShutdown in the Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir. Currently, Kashmiris have access to only 2G mobile Internet services which in today's digital world is absolutely useless for any meaningful communications.
A Year of #InternetRestrictions
#JammuandKashmir had 213 days of the complete internet blackout after which only 2G internet was restored in the valley. This year long communication block has caused immense damage to the citizens of the erstwhile UT.
We are live now to discuss the #pubgban with regards to the recent court order by the Islamabad High Court. We are hearing lawyer @JAKalyar discussing the legal aspect of the issue.
