Modi Government scraps Article 370 from Kashmir. The primary reason behind it is the increasing tensions with our neighboring country Pakistan. A hope to integrate Kashmir into India as an Union territory is now scrapped.
On Monday, the government scraped Article 370 of India’s constitution which guaranteed special rights to the Muslim-majority state J&K, which includes right to its own constitution and decision-making process for all matters except defense, communications and foreign affairs.
The local Kashmiris are angry with the decision made by the Modi government. The status of Kashmir is unclear at this point. The unending curfew and the dilemma of the status of Kashmir disheartened the local Kashmiris.
INJUSTICE TO POLITICAL LEADERS OF KASHMIR
The special status for Kashmir has been removed without the consent of the political leaders of Jammu and Kashmir. This is injustice on their part. The political leaders were in detention and the whole Nation was unaware about this seems to be an injustice towards the constitution of India. Kashmiri journalists are unable to publish their views and ideas of the latest happenings in the state of Jammu and Kashmir
UN SPEAKS WHILE WASHINGTON IS SILENT
The UN has expressed concern over the significant security, high risks, telecommunication restrictions and the detention of political leaders in Kashmir.
WASHINGTON’s views it as an internal matter between India and Pakistan, and prefers to not get involved in it unless there’s a conflict that breaks out between the two countries.
TOURISM AT STAKE
