Inside Kashmir’s media facility amid blackout

A look inside the only media centre in Indian-administered Kashmir offering internet facility to journalists.

“Everybody has been deprived of the internet,” says Hilal Mir, a journalist working in Indian-administered Kashmir.

This media facility is provided by government authorities and is the only place where journalists are able to push out news stories amid a communications blackout.

The internet blackout began when the government revoked the region’s autonomy and imposed a lockdown in August 2019.
