Reading Kashmir

One year after the revocation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, a selection of articles on the region.

On 5 August 2019, the Indian government revoked Article 370 and 35A, two key constitutional provisions on Jammu and Kashmir, thereby stripping the region of its autonomy and statehood. As we approach the first anniversary of the abrogation of Article 370, here is a selection of articles from our extensive coverage of Kashmir over the years, including recent pieces since the abrogation of statehood and the communications blackout:

For women in Kashmir, journalism is a life-long struggle. Commentary by Safina Nabi. (June 2020)

Samreen Mushtaq and Mudasir Amin on how the Indian state's decades-old tactic of installing and dethroning loyalists in Kashmir continues. (April 2020)

Majid Maqbool reports on the remarkable work done by journalists in Kashmir – despite government curbs and local media's restrictions. (January 2020)
