The constitution of India had some special rights for Jammu & Kashmir under Article 370 and 35A. The relationship between the state of Jammu & Kashmir and the Indian Union Territories has been the subject of discussion many times before. Article 370 has given a numerous amount of rights and powers to Jammu & Kashmir and give them a special status among other states.

On 5th August, 2019 Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi removed Article 370 and 35A which welcomed a number of disputes in Rajya Sabha but it was implemented with a large number of votes. Due to Article 370 many provisions of the constitution which are applicable to other states are not applicable in Jammu & Kashmir.

Some of the provisions under Article 370 are:

1. The order of supreme court is not applicable in Jammu & Kashmir.

2. People of Jammu & Kashmir can have their own flag except Indian flag.

3. Non- Citizens of Jammu & Kashmir cannot buy land or property in Jammu & Kashmir.

4. Except for defence, foreign affairs and communications all other laws passed by the parliament need to be passed by the state government of Jammu & Kashmir before they could be implemented.

Article 370 brings with it both pros and cons. But it is beneficial for a country. Article 370 brought a large number of terrorist group because of no proper power.

Is the removal of Article 370 worth? Comment your answers!
