Earlier, the ruling Modi Government revoked Article 370 of India’s constitution, which guaranteed special rights to the Jammu and Kashmir, including the right to its own constitution and autonomy to make laws on all matters, except defence, communications and foreign affairs.

Pakistan in retaliation decided to minimise diplomatic ties with India including severing rail links, recalling envoys, cutting all trade ties and banning of Indian movies. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs through a statement asked Islamabad to review its decision so that “normal channels for diplomatic communications are preserved”, which Islamabad rejected.
