Why did the Indian Government revoke my visa AFTER it was granted? Why didn’t they let me get a ‘visa on arrival’? Is it because I have been critical of the Indian Government on #Kashmir human rights issues?

J-K police files case against social media users under UAPA

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir police has filed a case against various social media users “who defied the Government orders and misused the social media platforms.”

As per a police statement issued here, a lot of incriminating material has also been seized in this regard. “This is the first FIR registered in Cyber Police Station Kashmir Zone Srinagar since its notification by the Government. The case is registered under FIR No. 01 of 2020 U/S 13 U A (P) Act, 188, 505 of IPC and 66-A(b) of IT Act,” the statement read.

Police also added that while the social media has been banned in Jammu and Kashmir “to curb the misuse of the sites by miscreants for propagating false information/ rumors. The ban was ordered to stall the rumor mongering and spreading false and fake facts having the effect of causing social instability.”

The statement reads that despite the ban there have been “continuous reports of misuse of social media sites by the miscreants to propagate the secessionist ideology and to promote unlawful activities. Social media has remained a favorite tool which largely provides anonymity to the user and also gives wide reach. The FIR has been registered while taking cognizance of the social media posts by the miscreants by use of different VPNs, which are propagating rumors with regard to the current security scenario of the Kashmir valley, propagating secessionist ideology and glorifying terror acts/ terrorists.”
