According to Directus: "The show of force with the Pakistani marches in the centre of Athens is a dangerous signal that we should not ignore. The Greek government bears the ultimate responsibility for this incredible provocation against India, and immediate action must be taken!

"It is a given that some Pakistanis in Greece are related to the intelligence service (ISI). The Turkish intelligence agency MIT works closely with the Pakistani intelligence agency ISI. A brake must be put on the parallel state they are building before it is too late.

"Turkey and Pakistan have embarked on a joint (dis)information strategy in the media to create a narrative that fits their geographical, political and defence interests in the Mediterranean and South Asia like a glove.

"It is clearly a Turkish-Pakistani information alliance in the context of the Turkish hybrid war, which Ankara has been waging against Greece in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean for at least two years."

What was Article 370?

Article 370 gave Jammu and Kashmir its own Constitution and decision-making rights for all matters barring defence, communications and foreign affairs. Its removal ended the special status to the state.

Contained within Article 370 was Article 35A, which allowed the erstwhile state to define who it acknowledged as permanent residents and gave special rights, such as government jobs and owning property.

However, as mentioned in the constitution, and pointed out by the court during the judgement, Article 370 was a temporary measure.

In 1951 a Constitution Assembly was elected for Jammu and Kashmir to formulate the constitution of Jammu and Kashmir within the ambit of Indian Constitution, and ‘subjects in respect of which the state should accede to the Union of India.'

And it was understood that this Assembly would have the authority to determine the future course of Article 370.

On 5 August 2019, the Government of India issued a Presidential Order superseding the 1954 order, and making all the provisions of the Indian constitution applicable to Jammu and Kashmir. The order was based on the resolution passed in both houses of India's parliament with two-thirds majority. A further order on 6 August made all the clauses of Article 370 except clause 1 to be inoperative.

In addition, the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019 was passed by the parliament, enacting the division of the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories to be called Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and Union Territory of Ladakh. The reorganisation took place on 31 October 2019.
