The government first said that there's a threat of terrorist attacks, asked all the tourists to leave, imposed curfew on the state and shut down all internet access and almost all TV channels. They basically placed all political leaders under house arrest, increased military presence and then made the announcement of scrapping 370. The curfew was relaxed for Eid but then tightened again towards early evening. According to the state's police, it has been mostly peaceful apart from a few random incidents. The state is basically under lockdown, so the worst is yet to come IMO. Our local news has sadly become a mouthpiece of the government the past few years. I'd probably trust the international media to do a better job tbh.
So let‘s hope your concerns doesn‘t become true and it stays peaceful..
