Two Bihar Men Arrested By Kashmir Police For Marrying Kashmiri Women After Abrogation Of Article 370

Ever since the abrogation of Article 370 which gave a special status to Jammu and Kashmir, a sexist joke began making rounds, about how now everyone can marry Kashmiri girls. What began as a joke on the internet later was picked up by some BJP politicians, including Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

It all stemmed from the fact that under Article 370 which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, it was held that any Kashmiri women marrying outside the state will lose her right to inheritance and property, which is no longer applicable since August 5.
