Territorial dispute over “Kashmir” had been subject of too many questions over a decade. A beautiful valley turned out to be a land for militants and terrorists. Imposition of Article 370 in the State which enriched the State with some temporary Provisions to safeguard the interest of the people turned out to be the greatest reason for misery itself. Pakistan has always shown interest in the valley, propaganda behind the notion of “free Kashmir” and misleading the youth for the same.

Revocation of Article 370 and introduction of The Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Bill 2019 in the state, legal effects of such bill and international stand on the Kashmir issue plays a vital role in India’s upcoming position in the world as a global leader. Effects of Article 370, acquiring permanent resident or dual citizenship while living under the Supreme Law of the Constitution which provides “equality before law” to all citizens.

Failure or ignorance of the Government, for the thirst of power could lead to situations which can divide one State form the Union of India. A provision which itself states to be “temporary” should have remained the same. Political party’s failure to take a strong stand on the subject which costs future of three generations of the state and the life of many soldiers as well.
