How India reshaped Kashmir by revoking Article 370 | UNPACKED

1 min read

One year ago today, the Indian government surprisingly revoked the special autonomy of Jammu and Kashmir, it’s only Muslim majority state. The revocation of Article 370 shocked residents of the region. The government also split the state into two federally controlled territories, calling them Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. This effectively took political representation away from the people of Kashmir and into the hands of Delhi. The move further strained diplomatic relations with India’s neighbor Pakistan, which just issued a new official map, which includes all of Kashmir, including the parts controlled by India. Both countries claim this whole region in its entirety, but govern it only partially. Meanwhile the residents of Indian controlled Kashmir have been attempting to live their lives through near continuous disruption, curfews and internet outages over the past year.
