With the advancement in the field of media and communication, regional movements have become a global dilemma. For instance, if we turn back the pages of history; the Arab spring, which starts from Tunisia eventually hits the borders of Jordan and Algeria and so on down the list, had its impact on multiple entities and nationalities.

Nowadays we can see as Kashmir issue is in the limelight whenever the sanctions or curfews are imposed by the Indians, the first thing they do, is to cut off the internet connections and modes of communication in the valley. Because nowadays technology is a weapon that can shake the throne from their bases.

We have witnessed that when Syed Ali Gilani, tweeted that, “ India is going to do the biggest genocide of the human history”. Within a matter of hours, #GenocideKashmir became one of Twitter’s top trends.

So, as the necessity is the mother of all inventions, technology has become the mother of revolutions. And it has converged the world on to one point.
