Repealing of Article 370 has led to a flood of bizarre comments on social media, with many people expressing views on marrying Kashmiri women, now that Article 370 and 35A are things of the past.
Among them were those from Saini, who made the statement while addressing a local gathering. “Muslim party workers should rejoice in the new provisions. They can now marry the white-skinned women of Kashmir,” Saini declared. His statement was met with applause.
