Kashmiris express anger at loss of special status – BBC News

Indian-administered Kashmir has been in a state of lockdown ever since the government decided to strip the region of its special status, with mobile phone networks, landlines and internet access cut off.

For many people in Indian-administered Kashmir, Article 370 was the main justification for being a part of India. By revoking it, the BJP-led government has significantly changed Delhi’s relationship with the region.

The article allowed the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir a certain amount of autonomy – its own constitution, a separate flag and the freedom to make laws, though foreign affairs, defence and communications remained with the central government.

Under the article, Jammu and Kashmir could make its own rules relating to permanent residency, ownership of property and fundamental rights. It could also bar Indians from outside the state from purchasing property or settling there.

The government said Article 370 needed to be scrapped to put the state on the same footing as the rest of India.

    In a major blow to the Indian government, the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on Saturday in break with precedent added an appeal to end the humanitarian crisis in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir in its report ahead of the annual Foreign Appropriations Act for 2020.

    The move could become the first step towards legislative action by American lawmakers against India, The Hindu reported.

    The amendment was proposed by Senator Chris Van Hollen, who visited Delhi this week as part of a congressional delegation that discussed the Kashmir situation as well as India-US bilateral relations, trade ties and defence purchases with key officials.

    Senator Van Hollen was denied permission by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government to visit the occupied valley which has been under lockdown since August 5 after New Delhi revoked its autonomous status, Washington Post reported.

    What was special in special status for people. Special poverty. Special un employment. Special no medical no education facility. Is this curfew forever? Is it not good to be disconnected rather than mis informed. If something bad happens who will suffer, only kashmiri, no pakistani, no imran khan, no bbc corrospondent. Only kashmiri.
