A young Kashmiri student has written an open letter to the Prime Minister showcasing the hardships faced by students who are struggling to keep up with their academic regime amidst the social distancing and quarantine measures to check the spread of the Corona virus. He says that students have no option but to switch to online methods of completing their educations and while 2G services have been restored, the speeds are too slow and are proving to be a deterrent to their education.


The Honourable Narendra Modi

Prime Minister of India

Sir,

I am writing this on behalf of myself and all other students of Kashmir Valley. We are extremely concerned with our education as Covid-19’s spread to India resulted in the unwanted but necessary suspending of our class work. The fact that right now internet is the only road which can be taken by the students to complete the syllabi and other assignments is true to every community of the world. We understand there are some valuable reasons which are restricting the authorities to restore 4g internet speed in the Valley but we have suffered huge losses in the previous year as well which can’t be allowed to happen this year also.

Our part of the world is very less affected from the disease as compared to other parts of the country and then to other cities of the world. This is a good omen but the terrible internet speed is what haunts us the most in these adverse circumstances. We have been cooperating with the authorities since months, then on internet restoration and now on 4g speed restoration. In addition, the speed of brodbands is also not matching their actual one. The low internet speed is really adding to our frets.

I am aware that you have a lot on your plate as Prime Minister of India, but as a responsible citizen and a student of high school, I am asking you to restore the 4g internet speed to help out the education system of Kashmir. I know a number of students and teachers who are extremely worried about the education in Kashmir and it breaks my heart.

I appreciate all that you do for our new Union Territory, and I look forward to seeing restoration of 4g internet speed. Thank You for listening.

Sincerely yours,
