Some say Internet access is a human right. What happens when a government decides to shut it down?

"Richard Forno, assistant director of the University of Maryland Baltimore County center for cybersecurity, disapproves of India’s actions but questions whether Internet access is a human right just because it is a convenient resource used by a lot of people.

“That’s like saying having a television and 100 channels is a human right,” he said.

“We can get too sensational in the terms,” said Forno. “It’s not warfare. The Internet is a resource being used by adversaries, and the government is stepping in for domestic security purposes.”"
