The Center has abolished Article 370, after which the matter has now reached the Supreme Court, though the Supreme Court has expressly refused to give any order. The petition was filed by some leaders in the Supreme Court which claimed that pressure was being put on Kashmir leaders after the abolition of Article 370. They are not allowed to move out of their homes. Apart from this, there are also more restrictions imposed on Kashmiri citizens,
Therefore, it should be ordered to be removed immediately. However, the Supreme Court has rejected these demands and said that the situation in Kashmir at present has not been calm but more sensitive. In such circumstances, the Supreme Court has refused to intervene in any of the steps taken in view of the law and order.
Besides, the Supreme Court has also said that it may take time for the government to control everything in Kashmir, given the current situation. Therefore, the Supreme Court has refused to order the present government too. While arguments were underway in the court, Attorney General KK Venugopal argued that no citizen was killed after the sanctions were imposed in Jammu and Kashmir.
When Venugopal made the arguments when the court asked the government to take steps to bring peace to Kashmir, he said that the situation was calm and government efforts were issued for that. In addition, the court also asked the petitioner's lawyer Maneka Guruswamy to give us details of which areas in Kashmir are excessive and unnecessary.
The Supreme Court also asked the government to give details on how long it will take to completely calm law and order in Kashmir. Venugopal later said that there was still a need for the suspension of law and order. A large number of military personnel have been deployed. So it may still take some time. He did not give a specific period or date.
