"Tell me how you came seem to understand what was going on in kashmir so over the weekend i have been talking closely with a a local journalist who works for us named samir yasser. I've worked with a lot. I've traveled across kashmir with him. He had told me that the house of indian army troops had flooded in to the valley in the last few days and there were barriers being erected people were being called up for extra duty who worked for the government satellite phones were being passed out police officers and and it's samir was just describing this anxiety and confusion and sense of doom hanging over the valley. He gave me the impression that there was a big preparation for some type of clamp down and he and i had a plan that we were gonna talk on monday. We're going to put together a story on monday and he said you know what let me send it to you. Sunday just in case something happens at he sent over a story about all these tensions in worries on sunday afternoon and that was the last i heard from urban. You couldn't reach him after that now. I tried calling him many times. I sent him messages. I sent in emails and what we learned was that the indian government had shut down all communication from the valley early on sunday night shortly after i had last communicated with our with our colleague so what did you do so so we had no way of communicating with people in the entire kashmir region so we waited knowing that something big was going to happen happen and on monday morning there was an announcement that a speech was going to be made by india's home minister in parliament and and that this would likely explain what was happening to catch mirror so i came into the office early along with some other colleagues. We turned on the t._v. Hello and welcome to register television. You're watching the big picture with me. Frank clubs and parole announcement with massive repercussions genuine tishman bowman. We waiting to hear what what was foot. Jemele and kushtia made a historic a massive day pretty quickly. It was clear that the the government had a very ambitious plan to change the status of kashmir and erase its autonomy that has existed for the decades demoted matron case abuse and the home minister took the floor of the upper house of parliament and began making this presentation about what the government was going to do how it was going to change this constitutional provision and what this means for for india mmediately provoked an hour or on on the floor of the parliament opposition politicians handed going but he just kept going the news landed like a bombshell in india because this is one of the biggest decisions the country has made a vow ruin kashmir or any other state says india was four hundred forty seven <music> <music> from what i can tell out of my window because our house is a little fortified. We have a lot of security like i said there's a deadly calm. The uh-huh actually beautiful. It's a nice sunny bombing morning here. It's about twelve in the afternoon so i wasn't able to reach samir but i was able to find a activists. The daughter of a prominent kashmiri politician who somehow was able to make a foist recording and send it to me to give me an update of what was happening and there's absolutely no movement no hongs a no sounds of cars nothing at all her name is ill to job and a contact of mine had given me her number and i i did some checking to see who was and her mother is a prominent kashmiri politician who had been put on house arrest so from yesterday. They've been a couple of developments. My mother was previously under house arrest but she's been detained now. I don't know if she was detained when i spoke correspondent and yesterday but they've taken her away job was really concerned frightened about what was happening all around for at the moment nonetheless qatar allowed to even step out of the house here. I don't know how much longer are they going to snap internet services and not allow us to make calls or have any sort of access to communication. She felt like this was an assault. On the dignity of cash mary's there's an absolute curtailment of civil lib- civil liberties we have no rights and it feels like kushner has been reduced to an open prison. That's the in theory that people are having a sense of powerlessness that they don't like at all what the government has done but they can't do anything about him. <music>.
