FILE- In this April 1, 2018 file photo, Kashmiri protesters engulfed in tear gas smoke clash with Indian paramilitary soldiers during a protest against the killing of rebels in Srinagar, Indian controlled Kashmir. India is redrawing its political map again. Parliament has approved a proposal by the Hindu nationalist-led government that strips statehood from Jammu and Kashmir, its only Muslim-majority state, splitting the region into two union territories after revoking its special rights under India's Constitution. Although India has redrawn its map many times since gaining independence from the British in 1947, the decision is likely to raise tensions in the already-volatile Himalayan region.
