Shah Faesal, currently the president of Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement on Tuesday referred to the situation in Kashmir valley as an “Unprecedented horror.” He tweeted after the bill to scrap article 370 and thereby the special status of the state was passed in Lok Sabha.

“Unprecedented horror in Kashmir,” Faesal, a former Indian Administrative Service officer, tweeted. “Everyone is heartbroken. A sense of defeat written on every face. Fall. From citizens to subjects. History has taken a catastrophic turn for all of us. People are numb. A people whose land, identity, history, was stolen, in broad daylight.”

“Today marks the darkest day in Indian democracy,” Mufti had said in a series of tweets on Monday. “Decision of J&K leadership to reject two-nation theory in 1947 and align with India has backfired. Abdullah said the government’s unilateral decision was shocking and “a total betrayal of the trust that the people of Jammu and Kashmir had reposed in India when the state acceded to it in 1947”.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi called the government’s decision to jail Kashmiri politicians “unconstitutional and undemocratic”.
