India's Narendra Modi faces a hostile welcome today as he makes his first visit as prime minister to Kashmir, where he has angered some with his apparent desire to curb the region's autonomy.

The trip by Modi, has provoked a sharp reaction from influential separatist groups which have called for a general strike to protest Indian rule over the restive Himalayan area.

During election campaigning, Modi had argued for "a discussion" about Article 370 of the Indian constitution, which specifies that laws passed by the national parliament are not applied to Kashmir unless approved by the local legislature.
