Protests have broken out in the disputed Kashmir region following a crackdown on public movement by Indian authorities. The near-total communications blackout imposed on September 3, 2021, was sparked by the death of Syed Ali Geelani. The top separatist leader was an opponent of the Indian government’s control of Kashmir and had become a symbol of the region’s defiance against New Delhi.
