Watch | ‘It’s disastrous’: Kashmir’s long school shutdown


The schools in Kashmir are now shut for the last two years due to back-to-back lockdowns, forcing students to learn in online mode. Even as the COVID19 numbers are now falling, there is no indication of a return to offline education. The Kashmir Walla’s Raashid Musa talked to people about what they think of the lengthy shutdown of schools.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
