Modi administration filed police cases against social media users in Indian occupied Kashmir under “anti-terror” laws for defying social media ban using proxy servers.

People of Indian occupied Kashmir have already been under a security and communication lock down since August 5, when India revoked Article 370 of its constitution to illegally annex occupied Kashmir.

Article 370 of Indian constitution guaranteed special autonomy for the disputed region.

Several Police complaints have been filed against unnamed users under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) of Indian constitution.

It is to be noted that a person booked under the UAPA can be jailed for months without bail.

Region’s police, which directly comes under India’s interior affairs ministry issues a statement which stated “taking a serious note of misuse of social media, there have been continuous reports of misuse of social media sites by the miscreants to propagate the secessionist ideology and to promote unlawful activities.”

The statement further said the action came against those who misused social media sites for propagating “secessionist ideology and promoting unlawful activities”.

on January 14, occupying administration had restored 2G internet after six months when the internet was cut off from the region – but the ban on social media continued.

Some social media users also alleged that security forces checked their phones at the checkpoints to delete the proxy servers from their phones.

Since August 5, occupying administration has imposed a curfew in occupied Kashmir, suspended telephone and internet services, and detained the local leadership.

Pakistan had strongly condemned the unprecedented New Delhi’s move to revoke Kashmir’s special status.
