Indian forces murdered Burhan Wani, the 22-year old pro-freedom armed commander, who had become widely popular, partly because of his social media use to condemn Indian atrocities against Kashmiris. The killing was followed by widespread protests against the Indian occupation. Indian forces killed dozens and blind hundreds of young Kashmiris by pellet-guns that otherwise are used to hunt animals. A months-long curfew was imposed and the internet was shut down for months, from 8th July till 19th November. A colonial-era law, known as section 144, which prohibits a gathering of more than four people to prevent violence or any disruption of law and order, had also been imposed in the region.
