Kashmir tweeples on Saturday evening created Twitter ‘storm’ by the hashtag ‘#KashmirNow’ which trended globally on number one.

Twitter users, both from Kashmir and diaspora, started tweeting at 8:30 PM (Indian Standard Time) with ‘#KashmirNow’ hashtaq and within no time there was a massive flow of tweets which made it possible to trend globally.

The aim of the Twitter ‘storm’ as mentioned by tweeples, was to create awareness about prevailing situation in Kashmir and ‘atrocities committed by police and troopers’.

The tweeples tweeted about the Kashmir conflict, armed resistance, and mass uprisings against Indian rule, human rights abuses, massacres, torture, killings, and detentions.

Kashmir has been on edge since Thursday after troopers of Border Security Force killed six people in Gool area of Ramban, and allegedly desecrated Quran in a local Masjid and seminary.  The region witnessed massive anti-India protests and clashes while government clamped strict curfew to thwart protests.
