article 370 - a hurdle to integration of J&K to rest of India?

edited December 2013 in Current Affairs
In the recent controversy started by Mr. MODI, What are forum's views on article 370?
Whether its creation or its erosion a hurdle to full integration(psychological &physical) of J&k to rest of India?


  • well friend what i feel is that jammu kashmir being an aquired territory because of sudden attack on it by pakistan should not be treated as any other state of India as the people of that state may not have the same feelings for the union of India as we have being from the will take time for them to get adjusted . But if we try to toy around with ART 370 they may feel threatened by influx of mainstream indians into kashmir which may awaken rebellious tendencies in the valley as has happned in case of Nagaland ...kashmiris think of themselves as a unique group in India and want to maintain that distinct identity while being a part of the Indian union. Most of them dont mind being a part of India but they may feel threatened if ARt 370 is repealed . I personally feel that a bottom up approach is better than a top down 1 in this case .
