Denying the digital right is a discriminationDear members as you all know it has been more than a year now since the abrogation of article 370 and suspension of the high-speed internet in J&K. The last time when the 2G internet was restored in my district was on 25 January 2020 only to be suspended on 26 January 2020. It was not the only time that even 2G internet access was denied.
It was suspended many times since January this year. The most recent internet suspension was during the last four days and I was unable to login to this site. I have raised threads on the internet problem before and I didn't want to raise this one again. But then I thought silence is not the solution.
If authorities felt the problem with 4G, therefore, suspended it and allowed only 2G internet. And I am unable to understand what is wrong with 2G internet that even this staggering and low-speed internet seems problem and is suspended again and again. Isn't it digital discrimination. Restricting the internet has created huge problems for a common man. If not 4G why even 2G internet is denied to the people?
