India revokes special status for Kashmir

India’s government has said it plans to revoke the part of the constitution that gives Indian-administered Kashmir special privileges.

Article 370, which gives Jammu and Kashmir more autonomy than any other Indian state, is sensitive because it is the basis on which the princely state of Kashmir joined India.

Home Minister Amit Shah made the announcement in parliament amid massive protests from the opposition.

The move is expected to spark unrest.
