The Republic of India (India) is one of the states of South Asia that has made itself more visible politically, economically and culturally in recent years. Increasing its economic capacity and policies exhibited under Prime Minister Modi also intensified the academic interest over India. Some developments in the region in 2019 and 2020 have also directly affected India's domestic politics. After the Pulwama attack on February 14, 2019, both India, Pakistan, and Kashmir faced some important situations. In this study, after the Pulwama attack, the decisions taken by the Indian government in domestic and foreign policy (only Pakistan and Kashmir will be included in this section) will be examined. The political and social implications of these decisions will be assessed, and the Indian elections, the abolition of Kashmir's autonomy status, and finally, the Indian Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) will be discussed as cases. The study will mainly benefit from the official statements of the Indian government and decision-makers and the constitutional amendments made. In this context, the changes and transformation in the domestic and foreign policy of India will be tried to be revealed. The main argument of the study is that the Pulwama attack has been a turning point for the Indian government, and this attack is seen as the legitimizer of many critical decisions taken in domestic and foreign policy. In other words, it is concluded that with the Pulwama attack, the security policies have been prioritized in the domestic and foreign policy of India.
