Internet Services Restricted in Rajouri and Poonch Ahead of Key J&K Tribal Bill Vote

Ahead of the Rajya Sabha’s approval of the Jammu and Kashmir Scheduled Tribes Order (Amendment) Bill, 2023, high-speed internet services in Rajouri and Poonch have been restricted. The bill, which has already received approval from the Lok Sabha, aims to include the Gadda Brahmin, Koli, Paddari Tribe, and Pahari Ethnic Group in the region’s Scheduled Tribes list. The legislation is scheduled to be presented in the Rajya Sabha following Lok Sabha’s endorsement.

As a measure to maintain law and order, mobile internet services have been suspended, and internet speeds have been deliberately reduced in the aforementioned areas. Expressing concern over this move, Guftar Ahmed, a local social activist, stated in a post on ‘X’, “Internet services have been abruptly halted in Rajouri and Poonch. Question arises – why curb the internet and impose restrictions if you believe your decision is justifiable? By altering the Scheduled Tribe status, the BJP has adversely impacted the Gujjar Bakarwal Community in Jammu and Kashmir.”
