Kashmir Article 370 Highlights: Days after imposing section 144, the government on Friday said that the restrictions will be reduced in Jammu and schools will open on Saturday. The Jammu and Kashmir administration in an order withdrew the Section 144 which had been imposed since August 5.

Meanwhile, Ministry of External Affairs reacting on the suspension of Samjhauta Express between New Delhi and Attari Friday called it a “unilateral decision” by the neighbouring country. Addressing a press briefing, MEA Spokesperson, Raveesh Kumar said, “It is a unilateral decision, we never asked for it and we regret this decision by Pakistan which is intended to feed the narrative that the relation between India and Pakistan have reached an alarming state.”

Meanwhile, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury and CPI’s D Raja were detained at the Srinagar airport on Friday, according to news agency PTI. “They showed us a legal order which did not allow any entry into Srinagar. It stated that even escorted movement in the city was not permitted due to security reasons. We are still trying to negotiate with them,” Yechury told PTI over the phone. The Left leaders had written separate letters to J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik Thursday informing him of their visit to the state.

On Thursday, protests erupted in Kargil district of Ladakh following which several people were detained. Some protesters reportedly threw stones at the security forces, following which there was lathicharge and use of tear-gas. Section 144 continues to be in place across J&K.

On August 5, Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced the revocation of certain provisions of Article 370 through a Presidential Order. The order also sought to bifurcate the state into two union territories — Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. On Tuesday, Parliament ratified the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, 2019. Justifying the government’s move, the prime minister said Pakistan was using Article 370 as a tool to spread terrorism. “Over 42,000 people died. Article 370 and Article 35 (A) did not give anything except separatism, corruption, terrorism and family rule,” Modi said.

Meanwhile, Kashmir remains in a state of lockdown since Sunday night, with heavy deployment of troops and the arrest of mainstream political leaders, including former chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah.
