We do not forget those countless Kashmiri activists & their supporters who over the past few years have been locked out of social media either for several days or weeks or permanently. Syed Ali Geelani, a leading figure in Kashmiri & human rights politics, was himself permanently locked out of FB in 2016. Social media has become a lifeline for the oppressed & it has been very hard for those thus silenced. That of course includes all of Kashmir repeatedly having the internet snapped for the past several years & now shut down completely for two months. We should take a moment to honor them & the contributions they have made. They were only silenced because they spoke the truth & would not bend the knee to genocide.
