FMP demands compliance with SC directions by Special Committee for restoration of 4G in J&K

One day after the internet slowdown in Jammu & Kashmir was extended till 17 June 2020, Foundation for Media Professionals (FMP) wrote to the Special Committee established by the Supreme Court to examine the issue of internet restrictions in the region. Despite being directed by the Supreme Court on 11 May 2020 to immediately determine the issue, the Special Committee has failed to take any action in almost three weeks. Therefore, on 28 May 2020, FMP wrote to members of the Special Committee seeking immediate review of internet restrictions in Jammu & Kashmir within 7 working days and urged the Committee to publish its recommendation rejecting/modifying/accepting the order issued by the government on 27 May 2020.
