Article 370 Dilution: How Centre, not Kashmir, Has Lost Special Status | Karan Thapar

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
In a detailed interview, Karan Thapar speaks to Faizan Mustafa, Vice-Chancellor at NALSAR
University of Law, on whether the Centre's decision to render Article 370 ineffective and break J&K into two is
constitutionally valid or not. They also speak about what happens next when this decision is challenged in the Supreme Court. Mustafa tells Thapar that though the court is unlikely to show urgency in this matter, the Centre's failure to ascertain the views of the state assembly can be grounds for striking down the move.

No other debate, discussion clarifies this issue as clearly as this interview did.
Best interview on Art 370. Mr. Karan Tapar had the best question which were never asked before by any other jurnalist and Mr. Faisan Mustafa deserves great respect to his mastery shown in all the answers he gave.
Hope that he remains in his post even after this interview, even otherwise this interview has the potential to reduce terror uplift that may happen in Kashmir after J&K people are free.

Where are such intellectual journalists gone
Now a days it's fish market journalism we watch

I was hoping for a balanced discussion. Instead Karan is leading Faizan to say what he wants him to, and in some cases badgering him to say whatever he wants to. Even a cloak of balance or neutrality is missing. To his credit Karan has done his homework very well, but the whole point of interview seems to be how wrong the govt. is, and the law minister has goofed up.
Does anyone believe that the govt. has not thought through the likely lines of attack on the move? Please be assured that the govt. would not make such elementary mistakes as Karan seems to suggest. It will be an interesting case when it comes up in Supreme court.
Stepping back a little bit, Karan seems to have only positive things to say about 370, how it ensured education, inheritance, domicile much better when in force than when it is abrogated. So my simple question is that if everything was so rosy pink, why is terrorism plaguing the state? No mention also is made of why Ladakh is rejoicing at separation from J&K, and what is the mood in Jammu. You are comparing terrorism in J&K vs Maoist insurgency in "18" other states? Really? Mr. Thapar, I hope you know the difference and if not, you are not fit to be called a journalist.

Clearly, Mr. Karan Thapar, you are a snake, that bites the hand that feeds you. For lack of the right word in English, DHIKKAR on you.

This interview is so well researched and the guest so knowledgeable that it hurts my brain. I will choose to be a Bhakt, because to dive deep demands too much work and research from me as a citizen. I conform to the status quo, since we're quasi-patriotic ourselves, that is why comical anti-heroes like Home Minister Shah take long strides in butchering this country, while I would second guess their intentions with my thumb stuck in the ass.

"Truth has become irrelevant, we live in a post-truth world", he is absolutely right.

So Congress managed to make 370 a subject of sentiments of the Kashmiris and at the same time managed to retain the powers by the way of 370. BJP on other hand damaged the whole setup.

Perhaps the best video on article 370. Everyone must watch this.
