In pictures: Third death anniversary of Tufail Mattoo


On the third death anniversary of Tufail Ashraf Mattoo, 17 year old student killed in 2010, his family accused that the selected police officials are violating the rules and regulations of their own department for sake of getting promotions.

Tufail’s father said that it is very unfortunate that even the human rights organisations, Human Rights watch, Amnesty International have not responded to our appeals. “Civil society including the parliamentarians who visited Kashmir and promised justice and peace in the Valley at the time of turmoil have vanished from the scene now,” he said.

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.
