Sharing is Important

The revival of 4G internet speed in Jammu and Kashmir is going to be reviewed once again today. There are speculations that once again the ban can be extended by citing security arrangements on Republic Day. According to administrative sources, the ban is likely to continue till 5 February. After that, a meeting will be called to discuss it once again.

After the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir on 5 August 2019, the Central Government completely stopped the mobile Internet service. Security agencies believed that anti-national elements would then intensify propaganda and internet service would prove to be helpful for them. 

About four months later, in addition to Jammu division, in some districts of Kashmir, this service was started with 2G internet speed. After the restoration of the internet, the propaganda started again in the valley, but due to low internet speed, these people could not succeed in their cause.

In such a manner, the Home Department held several meetings with security agencies and representatives of the district administration to discuss the restoration of 4G internet speed, but each time the ban was pushed forward citing security arrangements.

Today once again the Home Department has called a review meeting to discuss the restoration of 4G internet speed in Jammu and Kashmir. But sources say that security agencies have received information that with the help of Pakistan, militant organizations are trying to increase the terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir. 

In such a situation, if 4G internet speed is restored, then it will prove to be dangerous in terms of security. This is the reason that once again the ban on restoration of 4G internet speed can be announced in Jammu and Kashmir.
