At the end of last week, the decision of the Government of India to create two union territories of Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir on the site of the former state of Jammu and Kashmir formally entered into force. In fact, the state ceased to exist in August. Following this, the activity of separatist groups advocating the separation of Muslim Kashmir from India has increased dramatically.
