Episode 23,  Dec 02, 2019, 12:30 PM

119 days of communication blockade since August 5, postpaid mobile services restored, internet and prepaid mobile services still down

In the final episode on how North Kashmir has responded to the August 5 decision of the Indian government, we speak to Daanish Bin Nabi about the Sopore and Bandipora region. 

In this episode, we speak to residents of Sopore who opine that their region is witnessing unprecedented civil disobedience due to the abrogation of Article 370. Before this, Sopore was the only region in Kashmir which was largely unaffected by militancy. But through our conversations, especially with students, we unearth that a deep rooted fear has emerged across Sopore. Included are excerpts of interviews with residents of Sopore.
