On Tuesday, the Indian Parliament approved resolutions to revoke Article 370 of the Constitution that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir and allowed for the bifurcation of the state into two Union Territories. India has maintained that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part and the issue is strictly internal to the country.
