Kashmiris and others who have faith in democratic processes have been shocked when the Government of India with BJP at the helm revoked the special status of Kashmir on 5th August by introducing the bill in the parliament after having ensured that the political leaders are all under house arrest and the people cooped in their houses with restrictions imposed on them.
