#Article370 #AbhijitIyerMitra #Kashmir
This deep discussion focuses on three major aspects of the handling of Kashmir problem and the article 370. The discussion centres around three issues that complicated the resolution of the issue. Sanjay Dixit points out the first 2 – a concession by the Indian State to the 2-Nation Theory, and the support of the Muslim theologians to separate identity of Kashmir on the basis of Islamic doctrine. Abhijit Iyer Mitra points out the 3rd important aspect – the tactical and the operational, in which the Indian State never supported those who stood with India, and bent over backwards (the Dulat approach) to appease those who spoke and aced against it. All the three approaches have undergone a change with the nullification.
