As Jammu and Kashmir is going to complete two years without statehood next week, former chief minister of the erstwhile state Farooq Abdullah said that GoI “will have to rethink” on Article 370 if it wants the people of Kashmir and not just the land.
On August 5, the Government of India abro-gated the special status of JK and bifurcated the state into two union territories- Jammu and Kash-mir, and Ladakh.
Abudllah, the National Conference chief, dis-missed the suggestions that Kashmiris are looking resigned to the changed status, and that the anger among them is subsiding.
“We have seen a lot of tragedies in the state…One great thing we Kashmiris have is we don’t tell what we feel inside…Hatred is much more than you can notice. —KMS
