India Revokes Kashmir's Special Status
Central Indian authorities intend to take autonomous status from the most troubled region in the Himalayas. |
The Indian nationalist government is going to take one of the most serious steps on the situation in the state of Jammu and Kashmir - this region in the Himalayas has been an apple of discord between India and Pakistan for almost 70 years.
Official Delhi proposes to abolish Art. 370 of the country's constitution: it assigns to this predominantly Muslim state a “special status” and gives it more autonomy than any other region of the country. This article is crucial for regional security: it is the foundation of the state joining India many years ago.
This status, among other things, allows residents to buy property there. Also, according to the law, only residents can apply for civil service in the state.
The idea of depriving a state of autonomous status in the Indian parliament was voiced by the Minister of the Interior Amit Shah. "Jammu and Kashmir states needs to be reorganized", he said, urging deputies to include this issue on the agenda.
The leader of the Democratic Party, Jammu and Kashmir Mehbub Mufti, has already called the situation because of the proposal of the authorities "the darkest day in Indian democracy". In her opinion, the adoption of such amendments would be unconstitutional and "will make India an occupying force in the state".
“This will have disastrous consequences”, - the politician warned.
