Hasnain Masoodi is a former judge of the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir and a politician of the Jammu & Kashmir National Conference.
As a High Court judge, Masoodi ruled in October 2015 that the Article 370 of the Constitution of India that gives special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir is permanent.
In 2019, he was elected to Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Indian Parliament, from the Anantnag constituency. He defeated the former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti in the election by nearly 10,000 votes.
In August 2019, as the Union government moved to revoke of the provisions of Article 370, Masoodi opposed the resolution in the Lok Sabha. After the resolutions were passed by both the Houses of Parliament, Masoodi petitioned the Supreme Court of India, along with Mohammad Akbar Lone, asking for the revocation to be declared invalid.
Masoodi lives in Baghat-e-Barzulla in Srinagar.
