Decision on internet restrictions today: IGP

SRINAGAR: Inspector General of Police Kashmir range Syed Mujtaba Gillani late on Wednesday said the government would take a decision on imposing restrictions on internet services in Kashmir on Thursday. “We have not taken any decision on barring internet services yet. We will take a decision on Thursday after taking stock of the situation,” Gillani told Kashmir Reader.
The issue of such a ban during Eid-ul-Azha has arisen in the backdrop of the raging controversy over the ‘beef ban’, with the government saying it was concerned about people uploading and sharing images of bovine sacrifices on social media.
