Srinagar: Kashmiri netizens across the world have generated a Twitter trend seeking implementation of United Nations resolutions in Jammu and Kashmir, media reports said on Friday.
On Thursday evening at around 08:00 pm (IST), Kashmiris using micro-blogging networking site stormed the Twitter with hashtags seeking plebiscite and right to self-determination (RSD) as promised in at least 18 resolutions passed in UN Security Council on Kashmir.
Incidentally, the social media cry for Kashmiri rights came on a day when Indian army chief threatened Kashmiris with more force if they continued seeking ‘Azaadi’. “Azaadi is not possible,” he told The Indian Express in an interview with regard to massive pro-freedom demonstration in Kashmir. “(Kashmiris) cannot fight us; if they do so, we will use more force.”
At least 49 militants and 30 civilians have been killed by the government forces in the current year so far.
The netizens, however, succeeded in generating #KashmirPlebiscite trend on Twitter which drew attention of many from non-Kashmiri netizens who joined it thus showing support for the RSD.
