This Monday came as a celebration for Indian as Article 370 scraped from the Indian constitution. Home Minister Amit Shah proposed the new law in the Rajya Sabha and the upper house of the parliament. With the huge majority, the bill turned into law.
The decision has been hailed by everyone but Pakistan cricket player Shahid Afridi tweeted against the decision.
Shahid Afridi took to twitter to post: Kashmiri must be given their due rights as per #UN resolution. The right of freedom like all of us. Why was @UN created and why is it sleeping? The unprovoked aggression and crimes being committed in Kashmir against #humanity must be noted. The @POTUS must play his role to mediate
Responding to Afridi, former Indian cricketer now politician wrote: Shahid Afridi is spot on guys. There is “unprovoked aggression”,there r “crimes against humanity”. He shud be lauded for bringing this up. Only thing is he forgot to mention that all this is happening in “Pakistan Occupied Kashmir”. Don’t worry, will sort it out son!!!
The Central Government announced the removal of Article 370 (Article 370) from Jammu and Kashmir. This article had been giving special status to Jammu and Kashmir. According to the government's announcement, Jammu & Kashmir has been divided into two parts. In this, Jammu and Kashmir will be a union territory, while Ladakh has been made another union territory. Home Minister Amit Shah said in the Rajya Sabha that the Union Territory and assembly will be in Jammu and Kashmir but assembly will not be held in Ladakh. He said that the people of Ladakh had long been demanding to make it a union territory and this decision has been taken to fulfill the aspirations of the local people.
Jammu and Kashmir will not have a separate flag and the tricolor will be waved here like other parts of India. Citizens of other states of the country can also register their names and vote in the electoral rolls of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. With the abolition of Section 370, the provision of 'right to vote is only permanent citizens of Jammu and Kashmir' has bern removed. Like any state in the country, Jammu and Kashmir also will have a tenure of 5 years. The 6-year term of the Legislative Assembly will end as soon as Section 370 ends. People from other states will also be able to purchase land in Jammu and Kashmir. Dual citizenship has also ended. According to this, the woman of Jammu and Kashmir marries a person from another state, even then she will be called Indian only.
