Its re branding #terrorism in the #Kashmir Valley.

TRF came into picture in 2019 after the scrapping of Article 370 that granted limited autonomy to #JammuAndKashmir under the Constitution.

Is believed to be Lashkar-e-Taiba(LeT) in disguise

Reason for religion-neutral name

👉Provide cover to #Pakistan against blacklisting by Financial Action Task Force(FATF) for supporting non-state actors

👉 Create a false impression of home grown resistance against #Govt
(2/n) Image
#TRF actively uses Social media and has displayed sophisticated use of it for various purposes like recruitment and information dissemination etc

It always ensures a secular discourse to avoid Islamic narratives unlike other #terror groups(LeT)

As per the data, the killings in #stonepelting incidents during the nine month period last year came down by 62 per cent compared to the corresponding period in 2018.

The restoration of #4G in only a couple of districts in the Union Territory is discriminatory and denies citizens a basic necessity in these times of the pandemic.
#LetTheNetWork #KeepItOn #internetshutdown #JammuAndKashmir #Restore4GinJammuKashmir
The human and economic costs of these restrictions are huge and these actions are not at all proportionate. We hope that the Government will respond to the rightful demand to restore high speed Internet access in the region.
#LetTheNetWork #5august #internetshutdowns
The Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir has 20+ districts and restoring high speed in one district each in Jammu and Kashmir region is not enough with a review only happening after 2 months. #LetTheNetWork
