J&K govt issued a security advisory, urging Amarnath Yatris and tourists to leave the Valley at earliest, on Friday. Amid rumours and apprehensions, political parties from the Valley huddled for a meeting in Srinagar this evening. Stay tuned for updates.


Additional paramilitary forces, which arrived last week, have been deployed across Srinagar and other vulnerable areas of Kashmir valley. Barricades have been erected on many arterial roads, including the entry and exit points to Srinagar. Riot control vehicles have also been kept on standby in some areas

So the talk is to split the Kashmir area into three different provinces or something like that. I'm not terribly up on the politics of that region.

Essentially. But the big ticket item is that a majority Muslim population will now be directly controlled by a majority Hindu government where they will have little to no representation. They have lost the ability to make their own laws which they've been able to do since 1949, and their local elected leaders have basically been nullified. New Delhi is showing an incredible lack of foresight and will probably come to regret the decision.

We cannot underestimate the importance of this development. Pakistan's reaction during the next 48 hours is critical to how this will play out. Three of their four wars have been fought over Kashmir.
