Supreme Court To Review Jammu and Kashmir Internet Curbs Restrictive Orders

Foreign diplomats from 15 nations had seen Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday. Wells will arrive in Pakistan on January 19 for a three-day visit, the USA state department has previously said. "AGW", said the office for South and the Department of State's Central Asia affairs headed by deputy secretary Alice Wells in a tweet.AGW stands for Alice Wells.

We remain concerned by detention of political leaders and residents as well as Internet restrictions, says Alice Wells. "We look forward to a return to normalcy", US State Department's Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs tweeted on Saturday evening. She will then proceed to Islamabad on a similar, three-day visit that will begin on Jan 19. They also raised doubts over the Narendra Modi right-wing government's claim that revoking the occupied valley's autonomy was done in a bid to improve security and economic development.

We wanted to take a global group of envoys to Jammu and Kashmir with only some EU Ambassadors, and not all EU envoys were asked to join", the sources stated."European Union (EU) envoys wanted to visit Jammu and Kashmir as a group, which wasn't possible to accommodate due to restrictions in numbers and to keep the group broad-based. However, the diplomats were not given access to meet former Chief Ministers of the erstwhile state-Omar Abdullah or Mehbooba Mufti - who remain under detention.

"Although access for diplomats, rights activists and foreign journalists to Kashmir has always been controlled, India has further restricted travel to the region for both foreigners and Indian opposition leaders", VOA noted.

According to Reuters, the clampdown has cost occupied Kashmir's economy a loss of more than $2.4 billion as sectors directly dependent on the internet with commerce and information technology the worst hit.

The diplomats were driven by Indian authorities in a motorcade amid tight security from the airport to the military headquarters in Srinagar, where they were briefed on the security situation, an army officer said.

"Essentially, the government wants to demonstrate that everything is normal in Kashmir, which is far from reality", said Congress Party leader Manish Tewari. Foreign envoys from 17 countries including USA, Vietnam, South Korea, Brazil, Niger, Uzbekistan, Nigeria, Morocco, Guyana, Argentina, Philippines, Norway, Maldives, Fiji, Togo, Bangladesh and Peru are part of the delegation.
