Normalcy steadily returning in Jammu and Kashmir, section 144 withdrawn from Jammu municipal limits

Jammu district Deputy Magistrate Sushma Chauhan in a statement said that Section 144 (against a gathering of more than 4 people) has been withdrawn from Jammu municipal limits. All school and colleges are set to open from tomorrow (August 10).

Within few days after imposing restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir ahead of revoking Article 370 and Article 35A and bifurcation of the state of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) into Union Territories (UT) of J&K and Ladakh, normalcy seems to slowly be returning to the valley.

Jammu district Deputy Magistrate Sushma Chauhan in a statement said that Section 144 (against a gathering of more than 4 people) has been withdrawn from Jammu municipal limits. All school and colleges are set to open from tomorrow (August 10).


Meanwhile, Additional Director General of Police, Law and Order, Muneer Khan said, “In Jammu, the situation is normal. In Kashmir, the situation is under control. All steps necessary to maintain law and order will be taken.”


The section 144 was already relaxed in Udhampur district where schools opened today after remaining closed for 5 days. The market is also opening from 11AM to 5PM, and the administration has informed that section 144 will be lifted gradually.

The people in the valley who were confined indoors in the last few days are now slowly moving out of their houses and happily interacting with each other. Residents dwelling there have welcomed the audacious decision of the Narendra Modi government, which will transform the future of Jammu and Kashmir.

Since the historic decision was made, certain political parties, media, and intelligentsia tried to hijack the agenda by scare-mongering. This cabal tried to incite the people of J&K making them believe that abrogation of Article 370 was against their rights and goodwill.

While the left-leaning liberal industry was expecting this move to backfire, Kashmiris seem to have ruined their plans by staying calm and maintaining law and order. Contrary to their narrative, the people of J&K have embraced the abrogation with warmth and have treated the bifurcation as a gateway to peace, progress, and opportunities.
