Business / activities were going on before when internet was not common. First it is a misuse of internet which need to be arrested. One terror activity disturbs all the business activities. The difficulties without internet are tolerable than having easy access to terror with internet. During war against terrorism some inconveniences are expected and one has to face it. To stop Terrorism is not my responsibility - it is of Govt. -this dual policy only has ruined the situation in Kashmir for last 70 years. Older the decease longer the time to cure it. It has gone to the root of society and is hidden cancer. Determined to eradicate it.

While I understand that internet has become very integral to doing business or many other functions, I find it silly to claim that people are migrating because of loss of internet. It is as if there was no life or job opportunities before internet access became a common place. Just 15 years ago, internet access was very limited in most parts of the country. Life still happened and businesses thrived. To me this is just a lot of hype and propaganda.

It''s very simple that all paid RSS, BJP commentators are absent on this issue. Where is the development that people would like to see? It''s people or It is RSS and BJP? It is not so much the Modi duo to be blamed for they have done to Kashmir and Kashmiris but the opposition parties particularly Congress that considers itself mainstream party is silent about it. Sonia may have made those in congress who are power brokers and are happy that when people are fed up with the Govt. it is they who would get voted to power. Foolish as they are but in the case of Kashmir the leadership of all political parties have failed them.
