As several mining contracts in Kashmir Valley have been secured by non-locals in Kashmir after the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A in August 2019, locals feel that it will add to the loss of jobs and also threat to demographic change. In this podcast, host Fahad Shah, discusses its impact and outcome with Athar Parvaiz, an award-winning journalist based in Srinagar and Aijaz Ashraf Wani, Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Kashmir. 

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.
