Automatic TRANSCRIPT

People are saying it's not <Music> <Speech_Telephony_Female> how common <Speech_Female> are Internet shutdowns <Speech_Female> in India has. has <Speech_Male> this happened before <Speech_Male> yes so. Sadly <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> India is <Speech_Male> the world leader <Speech_Male> in Internet. <Silence> Shut downs <Speech_Male> in <Speech_Male> one thousand nine <Speech_Male> hundred eighteen. We've I've <Speech_Male> had over one hundred of <Speech_Male> those and <Speech_Male> we one hundred and <Speech_Male> twenty four <SpeakerChange> the <Speech_Female> yard before that <Speech_Female> that's a lot <Speech_Female> do they. Typically last <Speech_Female> as <SpeakerChange> long as <Speech_Male> as the one in Kashmir <Speech_Male> no <Speech_Male> usually they usually <Speech_Male> range anywhere <Speech_Male> from a <Speech_Male> few hours <Silence> to <Speech_Male> a couple of <Speech_Male> days. <Speech_Male> We <SpeakerChange> haven't seen <Silence> anything like this before. <Speech_Female> Honestly AH <Speech_Female> whenever I think <Speech_Female> of you know. Five <Speech_Female> months without Internet <Speech_Female> in a place <Speech_Female> that previously <Speech_Female> had very good <Speech_Female> access to the Internet <Speech_Female> where a lot of <Speech_Female> businesses are built <Speech_Female> upon their access through <Speech_Female> the Internet. <Speech_Female> It's really really <Speech_Female> hard to imagine. What kind <Speech_Female> of impact that must have <Speech_Female> for <SpeakerChange> people <Speech_Male> in Kashmir absolutely <Speech_Male> we <Speech_Male> India is <Speech_Male> the <Speech_Male> second largest internet it <Silence> market in the world? <Speech_Male> It's <Speech_Male> one country <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> most of the American <Speech_Male> tech companies are really <Speech_Male> excited about <Speech_Male> right because <Speech_Male> we have <Speech_Male> an open Internet <Speech_Male> unlike China's <Speech_Male> where <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> You know Netflix <Speech_Male> can come and <Speech_Male> see. <Speech_Male> Hey we want <Speech_Male> all one <Speech_Male> billion Indians to <Speech_Male> access our service is <Speech_Male> and facebook <Speech_Male> can be very excited <Speech_Male> because guess <Speech_Male> what they want to begin <Silence> Indians on <SpeakerChange> facebook. <Speech_Female> Do <Speech_Female> you think that what has been <Speech_Female> happening in India <Speech_Female> with these regular <Speech_Female> shutdowns and now this incredibly <Speech_Female> long shutdown <Speech_Female> in Kashmir <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> do you think that <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> that has global consequences <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> <SpeakerChange> for other <Silence> democracies <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Sure so I think <Speech_Male> one of the <Speech_Male> biggest fears uses <Speech_Male> than <Speech_Male> other countries might <Speech_Male> take a leaf <Speech_Male> out of Indians <Silence> out of India's book <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> When it comes to in <Speech_Male> shutdowns <Speech_Male> <hes> I <Speech_Male> don't know about democracies is <Speech_Male> but <hes> <Speech_Male> in December <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Chai <Speech_Male> Chinese newspaper <Speech_Male> published an <Speech_Male> article defending China's <Speech_Male> own <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Internet <Speech_Male> censorship and <Speech_Male> said. Look <Speech_Male> they do it in India. <Speech_Male> So you know. We're <Speech_Male> fine <Speech_Male> and used it <Speech_Male> to sort of justify <Speech_Male> their own behavior. <Speech_Male> So I <Silence> think that's <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> that's <Speech_Male> concerning <Speech_Male> if you know if <Speech_Male> if <Speech_Male> other authoritarian <Speech_Male> regimes <Speech_Male> start <Speech_Male> taking <Speech_Male> start looking at India's <Speech_Male> an example of what to <Speech_Male> do which <SpeakerChange> is <Speech_Female> not what you want <Speech_Female> so it sounds <Speech_Female> like with <Speech_Female> these restrictions <Speech_Female> starting to <Speech_Female> get lifted. Do <Speech_Female> you think that the <Speech_Female> region is likely <Speech_Female> to get back full full <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> connectivity <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> anytime soon. <Speech_Male> It's tough to say <Speech_Male> whether they'll be <Speech_Male> like a <Speech_Male> full restoration <Speech_Male> of the Internet <Speech_Male> honestly <Silence> <Speech_Male> I don't tank. <Speech_Male> The government <Speech_Male> wants <Speech_Male> all <Speech_Male> communities <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Telling us their stories <Speech_Male> like I said before <Silence> <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> eventually though so <Speech_Male> it's I think it's going to <Speech_Male> get to a point where <Speech_Male> it's like. Hey how long <Silence> can you keep <Speech_Male> some. <Speech_Male> But he silenced <Speech_Male> in in democracy <Speech_Male> like that <Speech_Male> so I think eventually <Speech_Male> I think it's is <Speech_Male> going to be <Silence> it's going to be just <Speech_Male> just <Speech_Male> not feasible <Speech_Male> to keep <Speech_Male> so many millions <Speech_Male> of people <Speech_Male> off the Internet <Speech_Male> so I think eventually <Speech_Female> yes we we <Speech_Male> will see <Speech_Male> the Internet coming <Speech_Male> back to Kashmir. But <Speech_Male> how soon <Speech_Male> that's <Speech_Male> going to happen <SpeakerChange> is anybody's <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> guess. At this. Point <Music> <Advertisement> <Music> <Music> <Advertisement> <Music> <Advertisement> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> <Speech_Female> Dixit is <Speech_Female> tech reporter for <Speech_Female> Buzzfeed News. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> I it is very <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> late where you are right now. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> I really <SpeakerChange> appreciate <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> you taking the time to talk to <Speech_Male> me no problem. <Music>
