Indian Home Minister Amit Shah today announced in the Rajya Sabha (Upper House) of Parliament that the government has chose to repeal Article 370 of the Constitution which grants special status to the state and that the state would be bifurcated into two Union territories - Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

On Saturday, prominent Hurriyat leader and All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani took to Twitter to urge the global Muslim community to help "save our souls" from "the biggest genocide" India is about to launch in occupied Kashmir.

The arrests of the votaries of special status to the state that safeguards the interests of sections of J&K population and invaders from Pakistan, were placed under house arrest at midnight, fuelling speculation that the centre is planning a major initiative like scrapping Article 35A of the Constitution.

"Forces have been deployed in the Valley to tackle any violence, communal or otherwise", sources said.
