Article 370 in Kashmir: Understanding its History and Implications
Article 370 was introduced in the Indian Constitution in 1949.
It grants special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir, allowing it to have its own constitution, flag, and autonomy over internal administration.
Article 370 was intended to be a temporary provision, but it has remained in force for over 70 years.
The special status granted by Article 370 has been a source of tension between India and Pakistan, with both countries claiming sovereignty over the region.
In August 2019, the Indian government revoked Article 370, stripping Jammu and Kashmir of its special status.
The revocation of Article 370 was met with protests and criticism, with many arguing that it was a violation of the rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
The future of Jammu and Kashmir remains uncertain, with ongoing tensions between India and Pakistan and concerns about human rights violations in the region.
