Srinagar: After the abrogation of Section 370 from Jammu and Kashmir and dividing the state into two Union Territories, the situation in the valley is returning to normal. However, there are still safety bans in some areas. A separate flag of Jammu and Kashmir was removed from the secretariat building in Srinagar on Sunday. Now the secretariat building is seen waving only the Indian flag.
How was Section 370 came?
The Jammu and Kashmir government had drafted a draft of the relationship with India. The Constituent Assembly of Jammu and Kashmir accepted Article 306A (now Section 370) with some changes on May 27, 1949. Then, on October 17, 1949, this section became a part of the Indian Constitution.
According to Section 370 prior to the amendment, the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir had dual citizenship. At the same time, the flag of the valley was also different. In Jammu and Kashmir, the humiliation of the national flag or national symbols did not fall under the category of crime. All orders of the Supreme Court of the country were not applicable in Jammu and Kashmir. Parliament could have enacted laws in a limited area on Jammu and Kashmir, but now the section has been abolished.
