Tareeka sahi nahi tha: Anurag Kashyap slams PM Narendra Modi as Article 370 gets revoked


Anurag Kashyap who has often voiced his displeasure with the NDA led government has once again taken a sly dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the government announced that Article 370 was being scrapped in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Kashyap directed a tweet at the PM and wrote that it was ‘scary’ to see one ‘one man’ thinking he ‘knows what is right for the benefit of 1,200,000,000 people’. He also wrote that the way the government adopted was not right.  

Anurag is pretty vocal about issues in the country and criticized the Central government for scrapping Article 35A and making Jammu and Kashmir a part of the Indian mainland as a Union Terrritory with a legislature. Ladakh will be another Union Territory carved out of the Jammu and Kashmir landmass which will not have a legislature. He also likened the situation in J&K as the story of Akira Kurosawa’s film Rashomon. Check out his tweets below.

Anurag used Roshoman’s reference to talk about the Kashmir issue. In the Roshoman effect different viewpoints are shown where viewers are left trying to figure out what to believe as the truth. On Friday (August 2), 38,000 troops were deployed in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Mobile, internet and landline services were suspended and several political leaders including all three past Chief Ministers including Farookh Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti were kept under house arrest. A curfew kicked in under Section 144 the next day. Union Home Minister Amit Shah ended the near 48-hour lockdown by announcing in the Rajya Sabha the government's decision to nullify Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcate the state into two Union Territories.

The government’s decision has received widespread cheer and euphoria from the rest of the country and the citizens who are applauding the government’s decisive action.
