Put Humanity First: Lift The Communications Lockdown In Kashmir!
Imagine a world where you cannot call home. This is the reality of thousands of Kashmiris around the world. Eight million Kashmiris living in the region today have been locked in their homes for over a month. Outside the region their friends and families are unable to get in touch amidst stories of curfews, protests, medical emergencies and use of excessive force by the administration. Families have been torn apart as they live under siege – a collective punishment for the people of Kashmir- this is the human cost of the blackout and it cannot be ignored.
The decades of political battle over Kashmir has affected its people more than anybody else, and now more so than ever before. At this crucial point in India’s history, help put humanity first, urge the Indian Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Satya Pal Malik to lift the communications lockdown in Kashmir and let the people speak. Let’s show the Indian Government that the world is watching and urge them to be on the right side of history.
