5th August 2019 the date which has been etched as a historic day in Indian history. Home Minster Amit Shah took a big decision in the upper house of the parliament. The government revoked Article 370 of the Indian constitution and divided Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories.
Article 370 came into existence in the 1950s and gave special rights to the people of J&K. It was just a ‘temporary provision’ which has been finally discarded.
Now that the article is defunct Jammu & Kashmir has been divided into two UTs, Jammu and Kashmir with a legislature, and Ladakh without one. People can now even buy plots and start their business in Kashmir.
Pakistani skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed interacted with the media after his Eid offerings in Karachi on Monday 12th August where he was asked to comment on Kashmir.
Sarfaraz said, I pray to Almighty Allah to rescue and guide our Kashmiri brothers to sail through their tough times. We also share the pain and misery equally and the entire Pakistan stands by them.
