For the past two days, with the government snapping mobile Internet connections, cable networks and newspapers, some people have been venting their anger on the Internet.
On Sunday morning, a police contingent was waiting at Regal Chowk here — from where newspapers are distributed to different parts of Kashmir — to seize all of them. The police have stopped the publication of Greater Kashmir, Kashmir Monitor, Kashmir Reader, Rising Kashmir and others.
Showkat Ahmad Motta, Editor of Kashmir Reader said, "The police told distributors that they have orders not to allow newspapers for four days."
Some of those with access to broadband Internet connection posted angry responses. "Rising Kashmir couldn't hit the stands as police stopped us from printing the paper," tweeted Shujaat Bhukhari, a journalist.
"They are now satisfying their collective conscience by caging people inside their homes and gagging their voices," wrote Jhangir Ali on twitter.
"The Gaza-ization of Kashmir continues, curfew clamped, Internet barred, cellphones jammed, press banned, milk supplies halted," wrote Farah Bashir on facebook.
