Far from normal

Mobile Internet remains suspended in Jammu and almost all Internet connections are blocked in the Valley. Kashmiris trying to reach their families must rely on landlines, which many households do not have. In the districts of South Kashmir, residents with landlines have kept the telephones on tables outside, charging passersby a few rupees per minute to use them. Journalists trying to send reports out of Kashmir have to go to the media facilitation centre in Srinagar, where the administration has set up a few computers connected to the Internet.
