India’s Jammu and Kashmir will see serious unrest

Wednesday, July 3, 2019

Significance

Meanwhile, the nationally ruling, Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s policy agenda for the restive, majority-Muslim state includes scrapping its special constitutional status and possibly reshaping its electoral boundaries.

Impacts

  • BJP attempts to revoke Article 370 and Article 35A of the constitution would attract opposition in parliament and in Jammu and Kashmir.
  • The BJP’s delimitation plans for Jammu and Kashmir would likely pave the way for the state to have its first Hindu chief minister.
  • Pakistan will appeal to other majority-Muslim countries to support its position on Kashmir.
