After India’s liberation from the British rule, India was partitioned to form two nations: India and Pakistan, there were several princely states existing under the rule of royals. Jammu and Kashmir was one such state, under the rule of the Hindu ruler, Raja Hari Singh. All princely states were given the option to join either of the two nations: India or Pakistan. After pressure from Pakistan and the support from India, he chose to sign “Instrument of Accession” with the Indian government. The Indian government gave special constitutional status to the state under article 370. However, on August 5, 2019, article 370 and 35A have been revoked, dissolving their special status.
