Tension rose between India and Pakistan just after the abrogation of article 370. Pakistan has been trying to disrupt the peace in Jammu and Kashmir. However, the vigilance on the border has been beefed up by India and patrolling has been increased on the border. The troops are on high alert across Jammu and Kashmir. 

On August 5 (Monday), Union Home Minister Amit Shah passed the resolution on Article 370 and a separate bill to divide the state into two separate union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

However, India has maintained that the decision is its internal matter and India does not invite any third party to interfere in our internal matter. India has made it clear that we do not allow any other countries to speak on Kashmir matter as Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of the country.
