Snapped communication due to abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir since August 5 is giving a tough time to agencies in Pakistan who are failing to create chaos in the Valley.
Now, attempts are being made to contact insurgents in Northeast India to incite them against the Indian government. A government source told India Today, “In Northeast, Naga insurgents are being tried to be instigated against the government.”
“As the situation is improving in Jammu and Kashmir, the restrictions are being removed. However, internet connectivity will not be restored soon as Pakistan continues to spread venom against India through the internet. They are trying to instigate people against the government and videos, which originated in Pakistan, have even reached Nagaland,” a security official said.
As per the information received by the authorities, several provocative messages are doing rounds in Nagaland.
Another official said that Pakistan’s agenda to create trouble in India through social media was detected when it was found that Pakistani officers were shooting videos in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). In these videos Pakistan security forces were seen wearing Indian security forces’ uniform and committing atrocities against people.
“Such videos are being circulated in various places,” the official said.
Instant messaging apps like WhatsApp were widely used in Jammu and Kashmir in the past to feed misinformation against the government.
“Once internet is restored, Pakistan will try its best to instigate people in Jammu and Kashmir like what they are now doing with insurgents in Nagaland,” an official said.
Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satyapal Malik has defended the decision to cut off the communication lines as mobile internet was being used by Pakistan-backed terrorist.
Hence, the sources said that the internet services in Jammu and Kashmir are unlikely to be restored anytime soon as Pakistan continues its attempt to sabotage peace in the Valley with fake videos.
