Internet blackout continues in Jammu and Kashmir

Srinagar:  The internet blackout in Jammu and Kashmir which was to end on Saturday midnight continued across the state on Sunday with subscribers unable to access the services through wired or wireless devices.

The government imposed the ban on internet services throughout the state on the eve of the Eid festival to prevent anti-social elements posting provocative comments and pictures online.

After the state high court re-asserted an 1862 law against bovine slaughter in the state, a huge controversy swirled in the Muslim majority state, with both the clerics and politicians blaming the order as interference in religious rights of the Muslim community.

Separatists in Kashmir were exhorting locals to offer sacrifices of bovine animals on the Eid festival to defy the law. Many anti-social elements were posting bovine slaughter pictures on the social media.

Top government sources told IANS here that the internet services will be resumed across the state on Sunday evening.
