This blog explores the genesis, features, and controversies surrounding Article 370, a controversial political issue in India, and its impact on Jammu & Kashmir. It covers the current situation and future developments in the region, providing insights for history buffs and political enthusiasts.

Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir grants the state legislature autonomy over internal matters, excluding defense,

foreign affairs, finance, and communications. This unique feature allows the state to have its own constitution and flag, preserving its distinct identity.

On August 5, 2019, the Indian government revoked Article 370, granting special status to Jammu & Kashmir, leading to its bifurcation into two union territories, Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. This decision marked a significant milestone in the region's history, nullifying its special status and reshaping the political landscape. The decision sparked debates on autonomy, demographics, and politics.
