Manan Wani, a scholar at Aligarh Muslim University, had joined militant ranks in January 2018. The Kashmir Walla spoke to his father at his residence in Tikipora, Kupwara on Thursday night, who says,
“We will mourn for four days for the scholar we lost, but I challenge the society to nurture a child like Manan.”

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.
