          And still on day 24 there is no mobile internet service in Kashmir. We who have loved ones and friends in Kashmir have NO way of finding out their condition other than by the use of the mobile phone and internet. To suspend this service is certainly not in keeping with actions of the "world's largest democracy rather that of a dictatorship bent on the obliteration of an entire people! The world is watching and is acutely aware of the treatment of the Kashmiris in this time of crisis!

            Both the state and central government ruled by saffronised party and its alliance partners are unnecessarily kneeling before the militants and afraid to face them. Instead of taking firm action against them they are believing in this type of activities on the presumption that everything in normal.
