Article 370. Is Kashmir now liberated or occupied?
Time & Location
About the Event
In August the Indian government shocked the world, and Indians when it revoked the (in)-famous article 370 which awarded the state of Kashmir special rights. The actions of the government have caused global divisions, as to the merits of the act - was it moral? Was it legal? Was it divisive? Was it unifying? One thing is clear: opinions are divided.
The Indian Government explicitly stated as part of its manifesto that it would revoke Article 370 if given the mandate to do so. The landslide victory at the ballot box gave all the justification it needed to carry out the will of the Indian people. But many people internationally have condemned the move as illegal and immoral. Some have suggested that this is a feud about religion rather than land or politics.
