Defending restrictions on the use of mobile phones and internet, MalikJammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik had said that the curb has been imposed as these facilities were abused as “a weapon” against the country and mostly exploited by terrorists to mobilise the people.

“There is much hullabaloo over the absence of telephone facilities. I want to say that people should wait for 10 more days. For us every life is important. Please try to understand the reasons behind these restrictions. Who uses phone and internet? It is of little use for us but is mostly exploited by terrorists and Pakistanis,” Malik said.
