It is the most significant change yet for the people of the region in more than seventy years.

  1. Wtf is with this al jazeera 😂😂😂

  2. I don't know whats their source of information is ? You're kidding with the facts of history.

  3. Its Funny to Expect a Middle east Channel to do Unbiased Reporting on kashmir without favouring Pakistan

  4. @

    Al Jazeera English
    have you read the Indian constitution before making this video, your reporting is absolutely against the sentiments and beliefs of Indians. Kindly report facts, not your views.

  5. dear indians !The truth is incontrovertible

  6. goodluck modi,youre going down as hitler and will probably die like hitler.inshaAllah.

  7. Pakistan never claimed pakistan just said let kashmiris chose what they want

  8. Al Jazeera….tumahri bhi maa ka bhosra……BBC Ko pehle gariya Chuka hu……AJAY SHUKLA tum itne geere hue Insaan ho mujhe nhi pata tha

  9. Jo bhi hua bhool jaa – Al jazeera mera loda pakad ke jhool Ja – HAaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  10. It was a temporary article under constitution. Read constitution before making videos.

  11. Bla bla bla
    Another payed agent on the screen

    It's was British
    India is suffering till now

  12. Someone explain in simple terms please. I want to know

  13. Very good job done! Pakistan's terrorism industry to take a hit!!

  14. india ki ma ki chut ma mera lund

  15. Terrorist India in the world of modi government terrorist

  16. The king of kashmir signed the instrument of accession to merge with india. Period. Pakistan might have a false emotional or strategic connect with kashmir, bu unfortunately legally it has no claim over kashmir. And the sooner they accept it, the better for everybody. Especially now after spreading terrorism and destroying kashmir in the last 70 years. Now india has taken over and kashmir will be have all rights that are given to every indian. Good education, jobs, power to question the govt, all this they were unable to get because of article 370.

  17. Its sad that 0.5 million kashmiri hindus were massacred in Valley in the 90s with help of then Pakistani ISI & sleeping congress government ……now that things are staged for upliftment ….Pakistan is crying foul ?? their entire existence is based on hatred…..their economy is down to gutter…..but Kashmir is their butter …..that too when India has highest Muslim population in the world after Indonesia

  18. You fools, kashmir got included into India in 1947, and article 370 got included into constitution after 1950..so don't try to befool people, as you don't have any right to lie to anybody in the name of news reporting.

  19. THE Article 370 of the Indian constitution Gave special status to the region of Jammu and kashmir, allowing It to have a separate Constitution, a state flag and autonomy over the internal administration of the state.
    The article was drafted in part XXI of the constitution: Temporary, Transitional and special provisions. The Constituent Assembly of Jammu and Kashmir , after its establishment, was empowered to recommend the articles of the Indian constitution that should be applied to the state or to abrogate the Article 370 altogether.
    After Consultation with the state's Constituent Assembly, the 1954 Presidential Order was issued, specifying the article of the Indian constitution that applied to the state. Since the Constituent dissolved itself without recommending the abrogation of Article 370, the article was deemed to have become a permanent feature of the Indian Constitution.

    This article , along with Article 35A, defined that the Jammu and Kashmir state's residents live under a separate set of laws, Including those related to citizenship, ownership of property, and fundamental rights, as compared to resident of other Indian states.
    as a result of this provision, Indian citizens from other states could not purchase land or property in Jammu & Kashmir.

  20. The kashmiri should now carry the war inside India. No longer inside kashmir.
    This is how to retreat India army from kashmir. But pls2 avoid childrens and innocent. Just target police, military and the ruler party.

  21. You are wrong on so many facts…Pls expect a better research team or accept that you are biased… 1- 0.50 Sec-Kashmir sign to merge in India in 1947 oct when Pakistan army inTribes dress attacked.That time even India's constitution was not there.. 370 been added in much later years… Mr Shukla come in India and see it's being supported by all the religion yes..there is protest in Kashmir…but people on the road can't decide the law and National decision…
    I surprise how these Shukla type joker appear on screen they don't have any knowledge on matter…they simple boot lick the TV channel agenda..

  22. FYI- There is no such thing as "Indian- administered J and K"! Jammu and kashmir has been as much a part of India since 1948 just like every other Indian state. Please educate yourself on this- you sound retarded when your reporting refuted
     the actual facts.

  23. Also please make a documentary on forced Exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir and then may be we can talk on things being rightly done or not.

  24. Please fight for bringing democracy in Qatar n learn to mind ur own business

  25. Kashmir will become the part of Pakistan!

  35. I never liked BJP but this time they earned my respect…Jai Hind

  36. One of the most historic decision India has made since it's independence. It is imperative for India, Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh that this progressive decision was made. Although a small ideological minority of the population of Kashmir will oppose it, many new positive changes and development will take place in the whole region because of this. The Buddhist majority Ladakh will enjoy more freedom and prosperity from being separated from Kashmir; women, lower caste people and other minorities will be empowered and enjoy immense freedom; radicalization of children will decrease and more of them will actually get to attend schools instead of Madrassas. Private investments and tourism in the region will significantly increase as well. What an historic decision by the governor of Kashmir, the president of India, the prime minister and the ruling party.

    Btw, Article 370 was always meant as a temporary and transitional provision since it's inception and could be removed anytime when the GOI sees the circumstances as fit.
