Ban on Social media in Kashmir, India - 26 Feb 2020

In this photo illustration, a Kashmiri man connects VPN on his phone to unblock access to social media sites in Srinagar. Authorities in Jammu and Kashmir have asked Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to ensure access to 1674 white-listed sites only and not to any social media applications allowing peer-to-peer communication and VPN applications. The 2G Internet facility on mobile phones was restored in Jammu and Kashmir on January 25 after remaining suspended since August 05 last year after the Centre announced abrogation of Article 370 provisions and bifurcation of the erstwhile state into union territories -- Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. Pertinently, police has registered an FIR against unknown people for using VPNs to gain access to social networking sites. (Photo by Idrees Abbas / SOPA Images/Sipa USA)(Sipa via AP Images)
