3 Lakh plus Post-graduates are Jobless in Jammu and Kashmir

Jammu and Kashmir Youth Jobless

Unemployment rate is seeing a constant rise in Jammu and Kashmir, as per a survey right-now there are more than 300000 PG students without jobs in J&K.

Among them there are also thousands of M. Phil, PhD, MBBS, boys and girls who have been

the victims of daily lock-downs and are suffering badly due to government failure.

Among Those is Latief Sheikh, a young resident of bandipora district,

who has completed his post graduation in Economics in 2015 from University of Kashmir.

While speaking to JKYouth Latief says: It hurts me, I feel disturbed,

my father is a daily wage worker he worked day and night for my studies,

he wanted see me well settled but due to government’s failure I’m Jobless.

There are many of Kashmiri students like Latief who have been constantly victims of the Unrest in

Jammu and Kashmir, they have lost their hopes in government.

B. Ed, M. Phil, Ph.D., adds no value to their studies, that too when Kashmir has no

private sector where these youth can go and excel their future.

Why JK Youth feel Betrayed?

Tariq a PG student from Baramulla says: Abrogation of Article370 has not just snatched our basic rights

and these last 10 months but also our hopes in Indian constitution,

we have not seen any government jobs since 2015.

We were kept in darkness by Indian government, and also these new 10000 Jobs are just myth,

these jobs are not for we Kashmiris,

this is a big conspiracy to divide our Jammu and Kashmir by giving preferences to

the Non- Residents with the help of Domicile Law.

Also if we check government of J&K has first advertised 1850 JK Bank Vacancies in 2018,

half of recruitment process was done,

students had already qualified Prelims and now they advertised the same posts

and included those who are not the residents of J&K.

This was a pre-plan of Modi Government to bring outsiders and to keep the

actual residents of Jammu and Kashmir unemployed.

And the most concerning part is that students are getting overage,

those are above 30 feel betrayed and and are hopeless.

If you are also the victim of this government Failure then please leave a comment and share your thoughts below this article.

Internet is the basic right of every Kashmiri citizen – Nasa Scientist

NASA Scientist demands 4G Internet in Kashmir

“The Indian government has used this shutdown to silence the people and press of Kashmir and limit access to information inside and outside the region,” said Aliya Iftikhar, CPJ’s senior Asia researcher.

Jammu and Kashmir lacks basic internet right since August 2019, when Government of India forcefully revoked the special status Article 370 and divided Jammu and Kashmir into 2 union territories (Jammu and Kashmir & Ladakh). All the Political and social leaders including Former Cheif Ministers like Umar Abdullah, Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti, and one of the young former IAS officer Shah Faesel were detained and many of them are still behind the bars.

Retired NASA Scientist Jim Adams said Kashmir survived without 4G internet for months, with coronavirus, it really needs it. High-speed internet in Jammu and Kashmir is needed now more than ever. With no access to crucial information and guidelines on coronavirus.

As the outbreak of COVID-19 has virtually unified the world to fight spread the deadly infection, Kashmir lags far behind. The ongoing suspension of 4G internet since August 5 last year has come as a major obstacle for doctors and people to access crucial guidelines and medical researches on the virus.

Amnesty India also called for the restoration of 4G Internet services, saying people should have full access to health and safety-related information.

Though the government has restored 2G services in dribs and drabs, connectivity remains a major issue.

Retired NASA Scientist Jim Adam gave the example of Kerala, noting that the Indian state has declared universal internet access a human right and aims to provide it for its 35 million people by this year, but has completely failed when it comes to Jammu and Kashmir.

the Jammu and Kashmir administration told the Supreme Court in its 32-page report on Wednesday while filing its detailed reply on a plea seeking the restoration of 4G internet connectivity.

Experts rubbished the government’s reply, which justified the curbs on the pretext that the number of government school students was far less and they didn’t possess a smart mobile phone or computer to access the internet.

“What kind of a logic is this,” fumed Professor Mohammad Aslam. “Have they gone out of their mind?”

Aslam, who headed the Department of English at Kashmir University first and the Central University of Kashmir later, said it was unthinkable to separate technology from education in the contemporary world. The abundance of material available on the internet is simply inaccessible to students in Jammu and Kashmir
