Q. Can AFSPA be withdrawn in a phased manner along with Article 370?
A. It would be very dangerous. See what happened in NIT Srinagar. Unless we have ways to identify and deal with hidden terrorists across Kashmiri population, AFSPA cannot be removed. It is our insurance against Jihadis.
First remove Article 370, then encourage outsiders to live in Kashmir. Once demographics has changed significantly, de-radicalization has happened, we can gradually remove AFSPA. Else it will become a Chutzpah.
