The HRD Ministry issued an order asking institutions to link students social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and this was received with skepticism by students and teachers. They fear that their political views will be tracked and thereby they will be attacked for differing from the present government. The HRD Ministry is currently planning to set up social media cells to coordinate the social media activity of all higher educational institutions with the HRD Ministry. Reacting to skepticism, the HRD Ministry said that the intention was not political but it was to provide a dynamic platform for the exchange of opinions and ideas. This has still not convinced students and the faculty who felt that the linking would feel restrictive. To ease the outcry, the government has said that the move will not be made compulsory.

In 1989-90, with Rajiv Gandhi as PM and Farooq Abdullah as CM, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs & Others FACED GENOCIDE - were slaughtered or forced to leave Kashmir overnight. "The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
