The historic decision to revoke Article 370 of the Constitution which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir did not deter the meme makers from poking fun at Bollywood actors and political leaders on Monday.

Some of the funniest memes are directed at actors Akshay Kumar and John Abraham — both known for their love for scripts with generous doses of patriotism. Several creatives show Kumar and Abraham fighting over the story for their next movie based on the Kashmir situation.

With the word “Gangsta” written, pictures of Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah are also floating on all social networking websites.

Memes showing brokers and buyers talking about purchasing property in Kashmir are also making the rounds.

However, not everybody is happy that a subject as serious as this must become a subject of joke.

“Whether you support the government’s move in Kashmir or not, you must know of the real conflicts and danger that could come in the wake of this. Can we for godsake stop with the jokes and memes? The insentivity is gross and disgusting! #Kashmir,” a user wrote on Twitter.

“All politics aside, sharing memes & jokes on the abrogation of Article 370 while Kashmiris struggle to communicate with their loved ones, living in a constant state of fear and misinformation must check their privilege.The situation in Kashmir is not a joke,” another tweet read.

Jammu and Kashmir is likely to receive snowfall in the next two days, which could help bring pollution down in neighbouring states.

“The snowfall accompanied by winds will bring down the particulate matter in the air to great extend,” Sonam Lotus, Director of the J&K Meteorological Department, told IANS.

“The active western disturbance and its interaction with cyclone MAHA, currently located in East Central Arabian Sea, is likely to cause moderate to heavy snowfall and rain in plains of J&K, and Ladakh during November 6-8. The snowfall will peak in the night on November 7,” MET said in a statement.

Lotus said early snowfall in happening for the second year in succession in Kashmir. “It’s good for agriculture, but could damage standing crops,” he said.

The MET has alerted the J&K administration about the likely disruption in road transport, especially through passes, like Zojilla, and on the Srinagar-Jammu-Leh-Manali Highway and Mughal road, due to landslides, low temperature and heavy snowfall.

The Jammu-Srinagar National Highway is the main link between Kashmir and the rest of the country.

Last year, the highway remained blocked for several days, cutting Kashmir from rest of the country and causing shortage of essentials in the Valley. Normally, the government stocks up essential supplies ahead of the winter, especially for areas like Tangdhar, Gurez and Ladakh. Most of these areas remain disconnected due to heavy snowfall.

Last year also, Kashmir witnessed snowfall in November. Normally, snowfall begins after November on the upper reaches of Kashmir. The 40-day peak winter season called ‘Chila-e-Kalan’ begins from December 20. Snowfall during the period last longer and is a major source for drinking water in summers.
