This historic move by the Modi Government has invited multiple opinions from people nationwide. Celebrities, sportsmen, businessmen, diplomats, NGO's -- people from all walks of life have reacted to scrapping of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. The statement read, "Further, keeping in view the prevailing internal security situation, fuelled by cross border terrorism in the existing state of Jammu and Kashmir, a separate Union Territory for Jammu and Kashmir is being created. The Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir will be with the legislature."

Director Anurag Kashyap took to his Twitter handle to express his opinion on this. He said: "You know what is scary , that One Man thinks that he knows exactly what’s the right thing to do for the benefit of 1,200,000,000 people and has the access to the power to execute it." Further, he confessed that he is unaware and doesn't have much information about Article 370 or 35A but one thing that he is sure of is the way this was executed was not right. Take a look at his tweets -

Translation: There are many aspects of Kashmir. All right and all wrong. Just know that the way in which all this happened, was not right.

Translation: Can not say much about Article 370 or 35A Its implication, history, or facts I still do not understand. It should have seemed to have never happened, why did it seem to be. I am a Kashmiri Muslim nor a Kashmiri Pandit. My Kashmiri friend says that the story of Kashmir is like Roshomon
