Updated : 2019-08-05 17:53:33

The government revoked Jammu & Kashmir's special status with a presidential order Monday. The order revokes Article 370 of India's Constitution, which gives the state of Jammu and Kashmir its own constitution and decision-making rights for all matters except for defence, communications and foreign affairs. Here's how the country reacted to the government's decision
