Law abiding

It seems that the telecom companies operating in our state have taken a cue from the laws like AFSPA, PSA. Nowadays people are seen thronging the document collection centres of these companies. Just a casual visit there and interaction with some subscribers would tell a lot about the agony and pain people have to go through to avail the services. First, customers are bombarded with messages and calls asking them to submit the required documents according to the "newly laid rules by the Government of India". Certain questions stare us in the face when such discriminatory and troublesome procedures are adopted against the people of the state. How do these companies sell the SIM cards in the first place without ensuring the 'identity' of the customers? Don't they ask for these documents that very time? What is the point in pestering you with messages and phone calls warning you about the suspension of your subscription if the documentation is not completed? Besides playing with the precious time of people, customers are levied an extra amount of money. Our government must intervene and look into the matter seriously lest it gives the people of the state another reason to turn violent. Everybody living in the state must not be looked down upon. Kashmiris are law-abiding citizens and deserve dignity and respect.
