Akhil Bharatiya Sangrash Dal urges for 4G Internet restoration in J&K

Secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Sangrash Dal, Sheikh Mohammad Aslam
SRINAGAR: Nine months has passed since the ban on Internet services in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370 but the authorities are reluctant to restore high-speed Internet services in the UT, thus giving tough time to local businessmen and students, Secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Sangrash Dal, Sheikh Mohammad Aslam said.

It was 05 August 2019 when the Central Government scrapped the Article 370 which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and Internet facility was snapped in the whole Jammu and Kashmir and was later restored at a limited 2G speed after at four months.

Local businessmen and students have lodged a protests on social media, asking authorities to restore the services as soon as possible.

"Students community who has been asked to take online classes  since the COVID-19-induced lockdown face a hard time. They are not able to concentrate fully on online classes due to the low speed of internet. This 2G speed is almost making the learning through internet classes impossible," says Sheikh Mohammad Aslam.

"Government should have either restored the high speed internet or not made us bound to take classes through internet when we don’t have it fully. Why is Government making mockery of it?” he adds.

The education has been greatly affected with this continuous shutdown of high-speed Internet in Jammu and Kashmir. What is the sin done by the people of J&K that they are facing the wrath of 2G at the time when the whole world is enjoying 4G and even 5G services.

Businessmen of Kashmir Valley mostly depend on Internet in terms of transactions but fail to carry out their business in absence of good internet connection. “Now it has been nine months that the people of Jammu and Kashmir are without high-speed internet services. Hope government will take note of this and will restore the 4G Internet as soon as possible," said Mohammad Aslam said.

“Whole world is grappling with the COVID-19 crisis and in these times, Internet plays a big role in disseminating the information. WHO guidelines are necessary to follow to save ourselves from Coronavirus but due to lack of the 4G Internet services, we remain mostly unaware with the global and regional updates of the COVID stories, which might make us targets of the Coronavirus in future,” he says.

“It will prove disastrous for everyone if the ban on Internet couldn’t be removed," he adds.

Sheikh Mohammad Aslam has appealed the authorities to restore 4G Internet services in Jammu and Kashmir so that neither the students nor the other people associated with the Internet suffer anymore.
