Under International pressure, India hints at reverting back the decision over Occupied Kashmir?
NEW DELHI - Under International pressure, India hints at reverting back the decision over Occupied Kashmir.
Occupied Jammu and Kashmir would not remain a Union Territory forever and that the statehood would be returned once the situation is normalised," Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said in an official statement quoting Shah.
The home minister also said that the notion that only Article 370 protected the Kashmiri culture and identity was the wrong one. Advertisement
He asserted that all regional identities are inherently protected by the Indian constitution and called the misuse of Article 370 the root cause of cross-border terrorism.
Shah made these remarks while speaking at a function where he met and interacted with the probationers of the 2018 batch of the Indian Police Service (IPS). The Home Minister touched all aspects and issues including the National Register of Citizens (NRC), Abrogation of Article 370, etc.
While interacting with the officers, Shah also discussed the NRC.
