Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has maintained his stance that he will abide by Article 370 of Kashmir and the controversial citizenship law.
Addressing a rally in his constituency in Varanasi, the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, Narendra Modi said that Article 370 and ‘controversial citizenship law’ decisions were necessary for India.
The Indian Prime Minister said that despite pressure from all over the world, we will stick to these decisions.
It may be recalled that India had abolished the special status of occupied Kashmir through the elimination of Article 370 last year, since which the Kashmiri people have been protesting.
India has been shutting down occupied Kashmir to oppress the voice of Kashmiris and curfew has been imposed in the valley for more than 6 months.
India, on the other hand, has also made a controversial amendment to its citizenship law, which will give citizenship to non-Muslims moving from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to India, but not to Muslims.
