1. Kill people- Check
2. Gag local media- check
3. Cut off all communication lines- Check
4. Bring in Indian media to extol the virtues of ‘fallen’ soldiers- check
5. Day curfew aside, place night curfews too- Check
6. Ensure blockade of essentials, starting with fuel- Check
7. Book international human rights organisations for sedition- Check
8. Suspend officials responsible for a fallen flag of a fallen nation- Check

India remains a shameless coward, no matter how much it boasts of its military might on its Independence Day. You know it is a failed state when it resorts to all cheap tactics in the bag to kill people and hush up the voices for freedom.

Little does India know that such things would have stopped the people long back, if it were effective really and we wouldn’t be looking at 40+ days of continuous resistance in the face of the dirty Indian occupation of Kashmir.
