Since the massive floods hit Kashmir and submerged the city Srinagar also, we had lost contact with all our staff. Most of the media houses in Kashmir are not been able to function. Today we have got in touch to Srinagar and these are the pictures from Jawahar Nagar and Rajbagh areas of the city. Several people have been evacuated and are being taken to dry areas like hospitals, schools and university for safety. There are still thousands stranded but the water level is decreasing now and the weather is getting better. Our Staff Photographer, Shahid Tantray, had been reporting and these are some of the scenes in the areas.
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.
