“#KASHMIR
Now the world knows how it feels when you are forced to be locked down.

Now the world knows how it feels when you cannot go out with a fear of getting dead.

Now the world knows how it feels when your children cannot go to school and patients can’t reach to hospitals.

Now the world knows how it feels when you cannot get access to basic life amenities, food, and medicines.

Now the world knows how it feels when you cannot go to airport and can’t travel, and when you have to cancel all your plans and programs.

Imagine in this situation, when you cannot have access to news, newspapers, cable Tv etc., even no access to electricity most of the time. Kashmir experienced it.

Imagine in this situation, your mobile phone network and internet gets blocked. Yes, this was done to Kashmiris. Even after 7 months, prepaid connections and 3G/4G still blocked.

Very few (countries/individuals) showed the concern, many were silent, many justified the lockdown and many celebrated. We won’t forget.”
