Srigar, Sept 3: Using state-of-art technology, an internet radio exhorting Kashmiris to rise against India has been launched.

Posting the news about the launch of the anti-India internet radio on its website, anti-India news portal Kashmir Media Service said on Thursday: "Radio Sada-e-Hurriyet-e-Jammu Kashmir has launched its round-the-clock internet transmission. It has been effectively projecting the human rights violations by Indian troops in occupied Kashmir." The launch of the internet radio assumes significance in the backdrop of the cancellation of tiol Security Advisor-level talks between India and Pakistan and the growing Line of Control (LoC) violations in Jammu and Kashmir.

During the 1965 India-Pakistan war, an underground radio station - Radio Sada-e-Kashmir - had started broadcast in September 1965 which used to air news about the actions carried out by infiltrator in the Kashmir Valley. The infiltration had filly forced India to carry out military strikes against Pakistan on the LoC and the Intertiol Border in Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab.

Although 'Radio Sada-e-Kashmir' claimed to be carrying out its broadcast from the valley, it was later established that the broadcast was being aired from across the LoC in Pakistan-occupied part of the state.

To counter the anti-India propaganda carried out by 'Radio Sada-e-Kashmir', the local state-controlled Radio Kashmir also started highlighting the successes of the Indian Army against the infiltrators and on the borders against the Pakistan Army in 1965.

The latest anti-India internet radio broadcasts programmes in Kashmiri, Urdu, English and Hindu. Intelligence agencies here were tight-lipped on Thursday about the broadcasts and on whether action was in the offing to block such broadcast.
