IFJ concerned over social media ban in Kashmir

International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has expressed serious concerns over  ban on social media in Kashmir.

In a statement, the IFJ has also demanded that the ban order should be immediately withdrawn and citizens’ rights to information and communication be respected.

The IFJ noted that Kashmir has witnessed as many as 14 internet shutdowns since 2016 and four of them in April 2017, making India the leading country in the world in virtual curfews.

The IFJ said the internet shutdown is a form of censorship and against the fundamental rights of people to freedom of opinion and expression.
