An average Indian knows the value of a SMS. Do you remember that some months ago, the Government had capped the sms to 5 sms per day for a few days? Can you recall the nuisance? SMS is associated with freedom of expression, of equality and technological advancement. It is a convienent and less expensive source of communication.
In 2010, the J&K Govt had imposed a ban on sms for a short time but the ban has continued till date. It has also been deemed unnecessary and ineffective. http://www.thekashmirwalla.com/2012/06/sms-ban-continues/
We demand that SMS service should be restored. There should be no "technological discrimination". We appeal to the honorable CM, Shri Omar Abdullah, to the NHRC chairperson and the Home Minister to kindly restore SMS service, an indespensible mode of communication in Today's world.
