The governor of Jammu & Kashmir has ordered cable operators to shut down over 30 channels because “they have the potential to encourage violence & can disturb the law & order situation in Kashmir.” Included were one sports channel, two food channels, & one music channel. This follows the banning of 22 social media sites where ‘anti-national & inimical elements were spreading objectionable information.’ What the governor means is that Kashmiri activists have gone too far in educating the world about the violent character of the Indian military occupation & in campaigning for Kashmiri self-determination. Freedom of speech & of the press have become central political struggles for the oppressed.
