SHAHDADKOT: The Indian decision to change the special status of Jammu Kashmir state has raised tensions in the region to a very high level. Article 370 of the Indian constitution provided restricted autonomy to Kashmir. In its election manifesto, the BJP had promised to revoke article 370. The party received support from Hindutva elements. Tensions are running high in the subcontinent. Modi is a master of reckless actions. The latest action is one in a series of such actions. Considering the fact that Pakistan and India both are nuclear armed, the international community should realise gravity of the situation and act to prevail of over India to revoke its decision of abrogating article 370.
