Amidst scare-mongering by Congress, Jammu and Kashmir returns to normalcy within two days of abrogating Article 370

The people of the newly formed UT have perceived abrogation and bifurcation as a golden opportunity to progress themselves and the society, and are now welcoming the Government of India's (GoI) decision.

Days after revoking the controversial Article 370 and bifurcation of the state of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) into Union Territories (UT) of J&K and Ladakh, normalcy seems to have returned to the valley. People are now slowly coming out of their homes and are happily interacting with each other in welcoming the decision of Narendra Modi government.

On August 5 Home Minister Amit Shah roared in the Parliament that “a historic wrong has been corrected,” and now seemingly the residents of the newly-formed UT of Jammu & Kashmir echo his sentiments.

Since the historic decision was made, certain political parties, media, and intelligentsia were scare-mongering and inciting the people of J&K to react against the abrogation of Article 370. The liberal industry was expecting some blowback by Kashmiris in response to the abrogation of the unjust article and bifurcation of the state.

However, the people of the newly formed UT have perceived abrogation and bifurcation as a golden opportunity to progress themselves and the society, and are now welcoming the Government of India’s (GoI) decision.

Times Now ground report has also called out the lies furthered by some media. In a video posted by the channel, it can be seen that the people of Kashmir are engaged in their daily routine. Some children can also be seen playing football.

The videos released by the Times Now suggest that life is back to normal in Kashmir contrary to claims of “liberal-secular” media.

Author and Journalist Rahul Pandita has also shared some of the videos of Kashmir valley. Even these videos suggest that life has been limping back to normalcy despite tensions here and there. In the video, a large number of vehicles moving on the streets can be seen.

He also uploaded a video of Srinagar’s iconic Zero Bridge at 7.55 pm on Wednesday. It can be seen that most of the barricades in Srinagar have been lifted allowing people to move out of their houses to buy essential items. Pandita also claimed he saw women on their evening stroll, besides witnessing stalls selling grilled meat at Dalgate, Rajbagh.

According to Pandita, many Kashmiris are happy because of the abrogation of Article 370. He added that people of the Kashmir believe that a handful of people with political power have benefitted from the ongoing conflict.

In his tweets, he further clarified that fuel was available at some petrol pumps and posted that he himself filled petrol in his car on the outskirts of Srinagar city. He added that in the morning some vegetable sellers had put their produce on sale along the Boulevard road.

Earlier today, the Congress party and its ecosystem attempted to create a false narrative by deliberately repeating the Pakistani line on J&K. Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Thursday had compared the situation in Jammu and Kashmir with Nazi concentration camps.

Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad once again parroted the lines of Pakistan and insulted the people by suggesting ‘anybody could bring people with money.’ His remarks came in the wake of NSA Ajit Doval’s recent visit to Shopian- the hotbed of terrorism.

In Shopian, Doval was seen interacting and eating lunch with the local Kashmiris. His visit to the terror-infested district reiterates the GoI’s claims that normalcy was returning to the valley.

District Commissioner’s office has also issued helpline numbers to help people in distress.
