It was August 5, 2019, the Jammu-Kashmir Bill Recognition Bill 2019 passed in Lok Sabha! Jammu-Kashmir split into two union territories- The decision that has made everyone’s head turn. Moreover, the special status given to Jammu-Kashmir has been revoked. The Bill cancels Article 370 in the constitution. In continuation of this happening, there has been both support and disapproval from everywhere.

The Central Government, aware of some terrifying circumstances through the abolition of 35A from Article 370, expelled all tourists, Amarnath pilgrims, out-of-state people, students and foreign journalists staying in Jammu and Kashmir as a precautionary measure. Similarly, Jammu-Kashmir natives who are studying in the other states tried to return to their hometown. Those students planned to go back home to celebrate their festive seasons. ‘Special arrangements were made for people to leave Kashmir. But no special arrangements were made for us, Kashmirians to return to our hometowns’ said the students with a feeling of grief.

‘I am from Kashmir. Not sure what’s going on in our town. My brother and I are studying in Chandigarh. We had booked air tickets to go to Kashmir on August 10 to celebrate Eid. With the curfew now being issued in Kashmir, I’m not sure if we could reach our hometown. All the money we had is emptied. Parents were also unable to send the money. We couldn’t contact our parents as the telephone lines were cut off. It has been 18 hours since I spoke to my parents. They would have been worried about us. Therefore, considering our situation, the government has to make special arrangements to go to Kashmir’, says Fala Noor, a Kashmir native. It is noteworthy that more than six thousand students from Kashmir are studying in other states.
