The Supreme Court on Friday directed the Jammu and Kashmir administration to review all orders imposing communication blockades including Internet in a week’s time and continue reviewing the same, periodically, in future.

Delivering its reserved verdict on a batch of petitions challenging curbs on communication and other restrictions in the Union Territory, a division bench of Justices NV Ramana, R Subhash Reddy and BR Gavai said failure to review Internet suspension or further suspensions will be held as contempt of court.

It asked the UT administration to publish all orders under Section 144 Cr.PC imposing prohibitory restrictions in the wake of repeal of special status to J&K under Article 370 of the Constitution in August last year.

Political parties, lawyers and politicians reacted to the apex court’s verdict.

Mehbooba Mufti’s Peoples’ Democratic Party, an ally of the BJP till 2018, welcomed the verdict and said that their faith in judiciary was reinstated.

The Indian National Congress in a tweet said that they hoped this was reminder that law & constitution is above their divisive policies.

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, whose plea was also taken up, labelled the judgment “historic”.

Lawyer Gautam Bhatia was relieved by the verdict.

Advocate Vrinda Bhandari thought that the SC has moved the jurisprudence forward in a progressive manner.

Sitaram Yechury, Secretary General of CPI(M) said that his party demanded that the Central Government remove all such restrictions, fully restore internet services, lift Section 144 and ensure the democratic rights of the people of Kashmir.
