Jammu and Kashmir has roared again with the deployment of additional security in the territory last week.

The positioning of additional security ahead of the the Hindu pilgrimage to Kashmir has blown into something else. Whenever there’s an increase in troop numbers in Kashmir, which already has about 60,000 troops in the area at any time, it’s met with anxiety by both Kashmiris and Pakistanis.

News regarding the scrapping off of article 370 and 35-A surfaced setting journalists, tabloids and not to forget social media warriors ablaze! Soon there was a curfew in place in Kashmir making all the pilgrims and tourists leave.

Indian Home Minister announced the revocation of article 370 today while there’s a complete lock down in Kashmir. The law allowed Jammu and Kashmir its own constitution sans issues of defense, communication and foreign affairs. Now revoked, the act has engineered a debate around the Flash point of South Asia.

Celebrities from both sides of the border have communicated their opinions via Twitter.
Have a look at what they have to say:

Some other actors have also commented on the issue using hashtags #IStandWithKashmir and #KashmirBleeds
