After 70 days of communication blackout, mobile phones start ringing in Kashmir

A Dubai-based newspaper Khaleej Times published a report that claims that the services of all postpaid mobile phones were restored on Monday across the Indian-Occupied Jammu and Kashmir after remaining suspended since August 5 when Modi-led Indian government revoked article 370 of its constitution.

It was a very big relief for the people living in the mountainous occupied valley at around 12 noon when the parents, relatives, and friends started seeking the welfare from each other after facing the communication blackout for more than 70 days.

“It is a great sense of relief. Looks like we have suddenly again been catapulted from the Stone Age into the present times,” said Bashir Ahmed while expressing his joy as his mobile phone started ringing in the Srinagar city.

A top government official said that since the mobile phones have started working again in the Kashmir valley, we hope that the anxieties and concerns of the parents, professionals, and the business community have been addressed.

“It is hoped that after the mobile phone service gets restored properly, parents will find it easy to send their children to schools, colleges, and universities,” the official, while talking to media, added.

He further expressed that we hope the mobile phone connectivity will also address the problems of the transport operators across the mountainous valley.
