Kashmir:Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik on Sunday justified the Centre’s decision to suspend landline and mobile phone services and Internet in the Valley, saying the move was helping save lives.
“Jammu and Kashmir has not witnessed a single killing in 10 days. If no communication helps saves lives, what is the harm?” Malik said.
“In all the crises that happened in Kashmir in the past, at least 50 people used to die in the first week itself. Our attitude is such that there should be no loss of human lives. 10 din telephone nahi honge, nahi honge, lekin hum bahut jaldi sab wapas kar denge (let there be no mobile phones for 10 days, we will ensure normalcy very soon),” he Said.
