Lol Micheal thinks Indian Government did this because of Trump's comment. Do you think Indian Government planned this in two weeks and decided to go for it?

Never have I seen so much baloney spouted by someone who has likely never set foot in Jammu and Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir is more than just the Kashmir Valley which is the hotbed of all organized protests that captures the imagination of those informed through the myopic view of a few media outlets. Step outside the valley and you have ordinary folks that want to live their lives in peace who, far from despising India (as Mr. Kugelman states), welcome growth in investment and opportunity in their areas. These are the folks in Jammu and Ladakh, and some even within the Kashmir Valley. The Kashmir Valley itself is a mere 6, 158 square miles compared to the rest of Kashmir that is 85, 806 square miles.

First, India has not abrogated its constitution to achieve this end; far from it, this has been done through a constitutionally permitted special majority. Second, Kashmir is a part of India by the instrument of accession signed by its ruler in 1947, and its autonomy (granted in 1947) did not contravene its membership within the Indian union. Third, and most importantly, the only ones howling about it seem to be Pakistan and the historically liberal media. Even China issued a statement that is, by its standards, very sedate - not even a summoning of the Indian ambassador to protest.

The reality is, this will likely end up being the event that kick starts Kashmir's integration into the Indian economic engine and the beginning of development and a new generation in Kashmir that sees the economic and social advantages of being a true part of the Indian union

Dear fellow Americans, Removal of Art 370 has been in BJP agenda for long time. It has nothing to do with our President Trump. Indian policy did not move, based on outcome of meetings of two leaders(Pak/US). Removing this Art 370 from Indian Constitution has been election menifesto agenda of BJP party since 1950, from day one, when Nehru brought this Art 370 in Indian parliament, giving Kashmiri special status. Nehru had said then, that it was temporary. Congress party had been ruling India since independence in 1947, but for vote-bank never removed it. So this temorary Article of 370 remained there hurting Indian sentiment. Whole India has been demanding its removal. First time BJP was able to get 2/3rd majority in both Houses of Parliament, so BJP was successful to remove it. Whole India including people of Jammu, Ladhak, Kashmiri Pundits, majority of Kashmiri Muslims are happy. Indians living here are happy. Only handful of Pakistani paid seperatists are unhappy with Daddy Pakistan(Land of impure)!!!!

Yep. They despise the historical and human rights of Hindus in Kashmir, as is evidenced in their horrific support of the murders of Kashmiri Pandits and other non-muslims. Over 500, 000 Kashmiri Pandits force to leave Kashmir because of Islamic threats. What human right's situation? That is long past in 1990. This is just a curfew. A couple of leading seditionists are under house arrest. Furthermore, the Indian Government views all Kashmiris (Kashmiri Pandits, muslim Kashmiris, other people who speak Koshur) as being part of the same Vedic /Dravidian heritage/family (same DNA/Ancestral North Indians and Ancestral South Indians) as the rest of the people of India. It takes no pleasure in the curfew. But it is necessary as a security measure to protect the people. There is no human rights abuse going on. The Indians have food and water and access to medical care if needed.
