Indeed the words are written down, profound, poignant, popular, angry words. The unjust, brutal, inhuman deeds deeply engraved in the memory. The streets of the valley are witness to the resistance; the longing for Azaadi is creatively articulated on the walls, streets, roads and even on shutters of shops. Written by anonymous people who are registering their protest in a non-violent way, pro-freedom graffiti has kept the sentiment alive. Even as the mainstream media talks about relative ‘peace’, tourists thronging the valley, ‘the turning of a new leaf’, the blue, black and bold letters of the graffiti assert that-if the propaganda of peace will go on, so will the revolution. —by Preetika Nanda.
The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.
We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.
We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.
The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
