On Monday morning, Home Minister Amit Shah announced in Rajya Sabha that the government has decided to revoke Article 370 of the Constitution, which grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir, which now ceases to be a state. The government has announced its decision that the state would be bifurcated into two Union territories. The first would be called Jammu and Kashmir, which will have a legislature. The other will be Ladakh, which will not have a legislature.
Now, several Bollywood celebrities like Anupam Kher, Zaira Wasim, Gul Panag, Pooja Bedi, Raveena Tandon and Dia Mirza have reacted to the big news of today and posted tweets on Twitter regarding the same.
Here's what B-town stars tweeted:
Kashmir Solution has begun.

Article 370 was temporary & transient. Watch #SushilPandit explain it so clearly. Here's a link. +link to the print version.
What we should be questioning is why something that was "temporary" lasted 60 years!! https://t.co/u5pKymut6qhttps://t.co/IgZjILZo6G#kashmiroperation

For the unversed, Section 144 has been imposed in the valley since midnight, as a result of which internet and mobile services have been suspended. Public gatherings have also been banned. Three of Jammu and Kashmir's prominent politicians — Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah and Sajjad Lone -- have been put under house arrest.
