A young boy of 16 years Zeyan Shafiq from Anantnag district of Kashmir, after the ban of social media in the beautiful valley, has recently developed a Kashbook, a Kashmiri version of Facebook, Kashmir’s own social network and also introduced a mobile application. As matter of fact, some individuals have learned to live without SM but, this boy’s out-of-the-box thinking took to a new invention.
It’s been a month that Facebook, What’sApp, and Twitter has been Baned from Kashmir. Initially, this website was launched in the year 2013 by Zeyan along with his friend 19-year-old Uzair Jan, although after the ban on 22 social media this site was relaunched. As per the sources, the site has already captivated around thousands of users and they are satisfied with the features of this new app and also hundred downloads via Google Play store. It evident that similar to FB, Kashbook also has features like connect with people, chat with them, send messages to them etc.
Facebook and Twitter work with VPN connection, it makes easier access for the individuals, on the other hand, Kashbook works without a VPN connection. In addition to this, this young boy has started learning the HTML tags by his own at the age of just 11 years and he also tried to learn computer languages, for instance, Java and C++. Zeyan and Uzair Jan his friend aspire to pursue computer engineering for further studies.
While talking to the media Zeyan told the media, “On the portal, you can add people and chat with them, post messages along with many features which one finds in other social media websites. There is also a market for buying and selling.” The social media websites were banned on April 26, as these sites were inappropriately by “anti-government elements.” These boys opposed the ban and they tried and accessed blocked social networking websites with the help of VPN (Virtual Private Network.)
It is pertinent to note that when Zeyan was asked, what’s the need to develop Kashmir’s own Facebook, he responded, “The government has blocked access to all the social networks and they are blocking VPNs too. So, when they’ll block the whole access to social media then how will people from valley stay connected with each other? KashBook is the answer to social media gag.” Our country needs much of this kind of talent, what say?? Truly an exception talent that leaves their remarkable image on the society with the valuable contribution to the society as a whole.
To communicate with Kashbook users in the Kashmiri language.
The website will focus and promote the goods and services made in Kashmir Valley.
There no VPN connection in Kashbook as that the people in Kashmir can easily communicate with one another and also can easily use it.
In conjunction with the above, Kashbook has also the facilitate the Kashmiri people to boost their business by selling and purchasing goods and services in this forum.
Both Zeyan and Uzair went online and asked if any queries faced by the users they will try to fix the issue or problem as there will be a full support to resolve the queries. The had sleepless night to ensure the social connection of the Kashmiri community. Hat’s off of to you boys for your extraordinary talent, that has invented a new app without any proper guidance and training.
