The SC can do no such thing - they will be going against the President of India (who would not have made this move without judicial review)

I too do not think the SC will do anything against the president and his order. The protests in Loksabha will be minor and token, as those against this move will be rejected in the next election. 370 was never popular anywhere in India, except Kashmir. Parties against the removal of 370 are: Congress, Samajwadi party, RJD, DMK, Muslim League, TMC, and the Communist parties. All declining under the onslaught of BJP. Frankly, the Djinn is out of the bottle, and all the king's horses and all the king's men will not be able to put Humpty together again. It will be impossible to bring back article 370 again even if the Congress wins a super majority in the next election. The only thing that the militants and their backers in Pakistan can do is cause more violence in Kashmir. But they have played this card and it did not have any effect on India's grip over there. What more can they do that they have not already tried? In a direct war with India, Pakistan will go out of gas and ammo in maximum 5-6 days. Most probably they will make some noise, send some terrorists to get killed and then keep quiet.
