In an absolutely retrograde move, the Jammu & Kashmir assembly passed a bill which meant that women of J & K who married outside the state would lose their Permanent Resident status. This reversed an earlier J & K High Court judgement. There had been an executive order, passed in 1927, which said the same thing but the granddaughter of the former Chief Minister GM Bakshi had successfully contested the order after she lost her PR status after marrying the son of a former Punjab Governor. I suppose India does end up losing a lot of face, especially when internationally the consensus is on democratizing and modernizing a lot of Muslim countries.

He has to offer an apology.
