Controversy over separate state flag for Jammu and Kashmir goes to the root of its autonomous status

Recent judicial orders over the Jammu and Kashmir state flag have brought to the surface the multiple ironies around the status of that state.

And that is to put it mildly. #BJP #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Mani Shankar Aiyar #Hindutva #Jawaharlal Nehru #NDA #Macaulay #Sardar Patel #Modi jacket
