Having endured the first 20 days of lockdown in kashmir i want to share a few bits from the ground to the benefit of you all who want a hand in building the right narrative but didn't experience the lockdown first hand -

1. The Indian national media that used to talk ...
...about facts with a slant has transformed into a radically invalid enterprise. Do not base your opinions ,analysis and solutions on the information gathered from Indian media. You will cut a joke out of yourself in doing so.
2. The impunity with which indian forces act has in all possibility transcended your assumption based on previous knowledge and experience and that is a cause of serious frustration and helplessness among people. Caspers routinely drive through villages and towns and are ...
...rightly percieved as great sights of terror. Civilians are openly beaten ,humiliated and tortured like never before. For example -

a) The local message had it that a few boys in shopian were rounded up and tortured
..mercilessly and their cries of anguish and pain were made aloud through mics and loudspeakers only for the village elders to cut a "moderate" deal with the army that the cries not be sounded through the mic and speaker system for it causes great distress in little children.
b) A friend of mine who happens to be largely inactive over political matters was asked to produce his ID &phone near his house only for the id and phone to be taken along. My friend was made to visit the camp to get his..
...belongings ,sent back once because his hair was long and required to be cut,he obliged and visited again with a hair-cut now to be ordered to not wear his skull cap but at times alone when he sounds the adhaan. My friend is a muezzin.
3. The socio-political environment is soaked in fear and the once vocal,inspirational individauls and activists increasingly feel helpless and incapacitated so much so that the international voices of solidarity and recognition all sound but slices of what you call token-ism.
4. Local engagements with the indian army and other pro-India agents during this clampdown and a reasonable analysis of the policy and ground tactics employed by India has made a lot of people believe that ....
... India is a cause and not a country.India is a hindu cause and the suffering of muslim kashmiris is both its objective and realization.
