India has not only cut to the chase on J&K, but challenged over 70 years of ignominy heaped upon it globally by Pakistan
You don’t have to be a cheerleader for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government to understand the full import of its move on 5 August to revoke Article 370 and turn Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) into two Union territories (UTs). You only have to be an Indian to appreciate this measure to unite all of India as one, pulling the rug from under the feet of Kashmiri leaders, who have played hide-and-seek as patriots and wronged J&K’s people for decades. New Delhi has rewritten history and one feature is notable: The religious aspect that is brought to bear internationally on the issue will no longer be part of India’s foreign policy math. Let that sink in.
