Modi: Stripping autonomy from Kashmir will free it from ‘terrorism and separatism’

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Thursday night that his government's move to strip the disputed state of Kashmir of its statehood and special constitutional status will free the disputed Himalayan region of "terrorism and separatism."

Indian authorities instituted an immediate security lockdown and near-total communications cutoff in the Muslim-majority region earlier this week and more than 500 people have been arrested since.

Kashmir is claimed in full by both India and archrival Pakistan, although each country controls only a portion of it. Rebels have been fighting Indian control in the portion New Delhi administers for decades. India downgraded the divided region from statehood to a territory Sunday night, limiting its autonomy and eliminating its right to its own constitution.
