    They're both massing troops and India just told its citizens on religious holiday to depart Kashmir.

    Kashmir Article 370: PM Modi, others laud Amit Shah for Parliament performance
    Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday proposed to remove Article 370 that gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The government also decided to bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories. The announcement made by Amit Shah in the Rajya Sabha triggered chaos and massive protests in Parliament. The announcement of J&K reorganisation was made after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a crucial Cabinet meeting at his 7, Lok Kalyan Marg residence along with the other members of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS).

    What this means is India took over direct control of its portion of Kashmir from the formerly autonomous governments. Apparently in doing so it also ordered a curfew and has placed over 10k troops in the region, with more to follow.

    Ongoing Kashmir Cross-Border Fire Kills 3 Pakistani, 5 Indian Soldiers; India Disputes
    A major exchange of fire has erupted along the contested Kashmir border separating India and Pakistan known as the Line of Control (LoC). Pakistan's army says at lease three Pakistani and five Indian soldiers were killed during the cross-border fighting on Thursday.

    However, India is denying the Pakistani army's account of the "ceasefire violations," calling it "fictitious". According to India Today "unprovoked fire" from the Pakistani side deliberately timed during India's 73rd Independence Day forced a response. India claims there were no casualties on its side, while affirming that three Pakistani troops were killed.

    Russia Backs India’s Move to Revoke Indian Kashmir Autonomy
    Russia in recent days came out in support of India’s decision last week to rescind New Delhi-administered Kashmir’s limited autonomy.
    Moscow has also expressed support for New Delhi’s move to break Indian Kashmir, which includes a portion administered by China, into two federally administered territories.
    Beijing has argued that the decision violates its sovereignty. However, India claims it is not interested in claiming control of Chinese Kashmir.
    “India was not raising any additional territorial claims,” India’s External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar said in Beijing last week. “The Chinese concerns in this regard were therefore misplaced.”

    India Weighing Preemptive Nuclear Strike In Response to Kashmir
    India recently said its commitment to the nuclear doctrine of ‘No First Use’ would be contingent upon the developing circumstances in its dispute with China and Pakistan over the Muslim-majority region of Kashmir.

    The declaration came days after Beijing, through its state-run Global Times, cautioned of a potential nuclear war over its Kashmir moves.

    Any steps taken by a nuclear-armed India to provoke a nuclear-armed Pakistan or a nuclear-armed China are clearly matters which should concern the wider world. In this sense, the threat of such a war is sadly closer than it was just weeks ago.

    Both Pakistan and China have warned India’s actions may lead to war.

    On August 16, Indian’ Defense Minister Rajnath Singh followed suit, also warning of a potential nuclear war.

    He wrote on Twitter that he visited Pokhran, the site of India’s first successful nuclear test in 1998 under former Prime Minister Atal Vajpayee, adding in a different post:
