#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)

.@SFLCin along with a coalition of non-profit organisations and civil society groups has written to the #JammuAndKashmir Government to restore high speed internet access in the region.โ€ฆ
#LetTheNetWork #KeepItOn #internetshutdown
The letter reinstated the plight of the citizens of #JammuAndKashmir as the region has had more than 365 days of restricted communication. Till 10th August 2020, #India has witnessed 433 #InternetShutdowns in total, out of which 55 have happened in 2020 alone and 106 in 2019.

A year after the abrogation of #Article370,ย official data accessed exclusively by IANS reveals that the sharp edges of the stones have not only been blunted in Anchar, the epicentre of #Pakistan's war against India in 2019, but in the rest of the #valley too.

The data reveals that civilian casualties due to #stonepelting incidents & the subsequent clashes with #securityforces in 2019,were 94% less than the number in 2016. Similarly, the injured due to stone-pelting incidents were down by 70% in 2019 compared to 2016.

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

A Year of #InternetRestrictions
An #Internetshutdown is more than just a disconnection from Whatsapp, Facebook or Twitter; it means limiting access to knowledge and learning opportunities.
#LetTheNetWork #KeepItOn #JammuandKashmir #5august
Confined to their homes, students have found it challenging to study online with the painstakingly slow internet connections, which also faces frequent outages.
With limited connectivity, Higher Education is struggling event more. Students who have to prepare for competitive exams can't attend coaching classes physically due to the #Pandemic & the Internet is not fast enough for online classes.

On the occasion of 1 yr of #AbrogationofArticle370, we bring out some key changes that took place due to this historic decision by GoI & transformations in state that happened through growth in various sectors which were previously ignored in development projects Image
As we know, #Article370 & 35A placed restrictions on transfer of land in J&K. Abrogation of the โ€˜Special Statusโ€™ encouraged industry & private investments.
Sadly, no large scale industry could ever develop in J&K for all these years.
This resulted in the talented youth being unemployed & looking for other avenues. It is now a thing of the past. Industries are now looking towards tapping the talent rich youth of #Kashmir. This will spur growth & employment leading to prosperity for all. Image

Shayan used to run digital marketing campaigns for his clients based in Jammu and Kashmir, but with #NoInternet, he has been forced to look at other alternatives and look for himself and his family.

While Banana Republic of #Pakistan is ready to waste lot of time & resource to protest 1st anniversary of India scrapping 370, I'll use my time cleverly to make a thread on positive developments that #JammuAndKashmir has seen since August 5, 2019.

Spread the thread๐Ÿ‘‡
While occupied Kashmir is used by Pakistan only for cross border terrorism, #JammuAndKashmir, an integral part of India, is widely development-oriented.

With an almost collapsed health system in PoK, Gilgit-Baltistan, there is NO comparison of J&K with PoK.
@TellDM @SengeHSering
On one hand, while there is a dedicated effort to foster/nurture sport in the state of J&K with youths bringing laurels for India, on the other โ›๐—ง๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—บโœ is the only sport Pak dedicatedly promotes in occupied #Kashmir.
