Kyle B. and I (and others) are getting together for a little PFB summit this weekend. Send questions or suggestions for the site on Twitter so we can discuss.Football NewsRanking our rivalries.

In an update on the J&K situation, the MHA said all landline connections have been restored, while schools and health institutions are fully functioning. All banks and ATMs are also functional and over 1.08 crore have been withdrawn from the J&K bank, it said.

Restrictions are being eased continuously. Temporary preventive and precautionary measures were necessitated to ensure safety and security of our citizens in the face of credible threats of cross-border terrorism,” MEA Secretary (East) Vijay Thakur Singh said, while also rejecting Pakistan’s contentions on Kashmir as a “malicious agenda”. On Monday, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet had expressed “deep concern” at the communication shutdown and detention of political leadership in Jammu and Kashmir and urged the Indian government to ensure that human rights are respected and protected. J&K has been under security lockdown and communication blackout since August 5 when the government decided to modify Article 370 of the Indian Constitution that gave it special rights. The government also decided to bifurcate the state into two union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.(inputs from The Indian Express)
