    On 5 August 2019 the Indian Govt. struck down Article 370 and split the state of J&K into two Union Territories. The govt. and most of India's television media have portrayed that the situation is normal in all of Kashmir and that the people of the valley are ok with this move. However, some incidents of unrest were recently reported in Soura, a dense neighbourhood in Srinagar.

    Newsclick spent a week covering the neighbourhood and found that there have been regular protests against the removal of article 370 and that the neighbourhood is under govt. siege.
