islamo fascists attempt to abduct two minor girls, of minority religion in chattisingpora

https://www.tribuneindia.com/news/jammu ... 31098.html
excerpted
The mysterious “abduction” of two minor girls from the Sikh village of Chattisinghpora in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district has drowned its residents in fear about security. The two girls – neighbours and students of Class X – were on their way to school on Tuesday when they were abducted, their families said

and
Giani Rajinder Singh, a village elder, said the incident had terrified the Sikh community. “We want the culprits to be identified and arrested. We want to know who did it and why it was done,” he said

BJP ready for debate on Article 35A; call for two-day shutdown in J&K
"The BJP is open to a debate with anyone or any political party on whether or not Article 35A is in the interest of the people of the state. We are extending an open invitation," J&K BJP chief spokesperson Sunil Sethi told reporters.

Sethi said over the last few days, the political climate in the state has heated up over Article 35A and some political parties, especially those active in Kashmir, have taken an "anti-national and anti-people" stand on the issue.

The J&K BJP chief also targeted the National Conference (NC) and the Congress for misleading the people in the Kashmir Valley over Article 35A that it is for their betterment and in the interest of the state.

"The continuation of Article 35A will not have any benefit for the state. The central government has pumped crores of rupees into the state over the last 70 years but the development has not been as it should have been," he said.

Sethgi said that the special constitutional provision has acted as an obstacle in the state's development because it did not allow outside investment.

"Investors do not come here to set up Infrastructure. The youth are not getting the jobs," he added.

The BJP spokesperson alleged some politicians want to maintain the position for vote bank politics.

This is an opinion piece in a leading Jammu based paper on Article 35-A and Human Rights of women in J&K
http://www.dailyexcelsior.com/article-3 ... men-in-jk/
the islamo - fascist nature of the State Govt is biased to such an extent that the rights of women are denied blatantly in contempt of the J&K High Court . Attempts are made by the Govt to pass amendments in the Legislature to deny rights to women.
The article needs to be read in full.
excerpts
Preamble of J&K constitution provides for equality.
Section 19 of J&K Constitution provides for equal opportunities for both men and women.
Article 14 of Constitution of India states as under: “The State shall not deny to any person equality before the law and equal protection of laws within the territory of India.”
Articles 15 and 16 in the Constitution of India prohibit discrimination on the grounds of sex. Article 21 provides right to life. But they are insignificant before PRC law of J&K.

and
Though the State Government initially filed Special Leave Petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court against the verdict of Full Bench of J&K High Court but later withdrew the same after making an opinion that it will carry out necessary amendments in the Act governing issuance of PRCs.
In March 2004, an attempt was made by the PDP-led coalition government to bypass the High Court’s landmark judgment. It moved an official Bill after the tough stand of Hon’ble Supreme Court which was passed in a record 6 minutes.
But the Bill was declared “defeated” in the Legislative Council. The main reason was that the bill had created a storm in Jammu and at the national level as anti-women, reactionary and out-dated.
But the defeat of the Bill did not deter the coalition government. Instead of implementing the High Court verdict, officials in the Revenue Department continued to endorse “valid till marriage” on the State Subject Certificates issued to unmarried daughters of State Subjects.
In Hari Om vs. State of J&K & others (PIL No. 1002/2004 & CMP No. 1089/2004), the Double Bench comprising Justices V.K. Jhanji and Y.P. Nargotra, in its interim judgment on Sept. 24, 2004, ruled: “In the meantime, respondents (State of J&K & others) are directed not to make any endorsement of ‘valid till marriage’ on the State Subject Certificate issued to unmarried daughters of State Subjects”.
The State Government did not implement the interim order, and dismissed the judgment with contempt. On Jan. 27, 2005, Commissioner/Secretary to the Government, Revenue Department, issued circular No Rev (LB) 87/74 asking the State Subject Certificate issuing authorities to make endorsement: “The certificate may be reissued after marriage to indicate if the lady has married a State Subject or non-State Subject”.
The petitioner again knocked at the doors of the High Court and sought contempt proceedings against the J&K Government, via PIL (COA (PIL) No. 2/2005). The matter went to the Double Bench comprising Justices V.K. Jhanji and Parmod Kohli. On July 11, 2005, the Bench stayed implementation of the impugned anti-women circular and issued notice to the J&K Government. This had its impact on the J&K Government and on Aug. 2, 2005, it withdrew the circular vide No. Rev/PRC/04-WP. Thus the J&K High Court on four occasions delivered judgments aimed at ensuring gender equality. The judgments were unambiguous and were hailed by one and all.

How the hell do thousands of rohingya illegals live comfortably in J&K but Kashmir pandits languish in camps.

Total insanity. 370 needs to be scrapped.

Assam NRC row: Shiv Sena backs Centre, seeks 'ghar wapsi' of Kashmiri pandits

The Shiv Sena on Friday came out in support of the Narendra Modi government over the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC), but asked whether the Centre also had the courage to ensure the "ghar wapsi" of displaced Kashmiri pandits.

The BJP ally said those who posed a threat to the country's security must be thrown out and the infiltrators in Kashmir must be eliminated.

The party said abolition of Article 370 of the Constitution, which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir, was as much a nationalistic work as implementing the NRC list.

"The issue of national security is not only restricted to the 40 lakh infiltrators in Assam. The situation in Kashmir is worsening day by day. There is more threat from Pakistan, where military rule is imminent under the leadership of Imran Khan.

"Forty lakh illegal foreign residents in Assam have changed the geography, history and culture of that state. The same is happening in Kashmir. Will the government show the courage of ensuring the 'ghar wapsi' (return) of 1.5 lakh displaced Kashmiri pandits the same way it is throwing out the illegal citizens in Assam?" the Sena asked.

The so-called constitution of Jammu & Kashmir which the KM and the constituent assembly are swearing by and vowing to protect has this as a preamble (I have highlighted the key parts):

THE CONSTITUTION OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR

Preamble:-

WE, THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR, having solemnly resolved, in pursuance of the accession of this State to India which took place on the twenty sixth day of October, 1947, to further define the existing relationship of the State with the Union of India as an integral part thereof, and to secure to ourselves

JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and' worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; and to promote among us all ;
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity of the Nation;

IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this seventeenth day of November, 1956, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION.


I am not a constitutional expert but I know a broken agreement when I see one. Each one of the highlighted parts above have been violated.

If the state of J&K and its majority (the first party) have willfully and negligently violated the terms of the agreement and have directly or indirectly caused provable harm and verifiable risk to the integrity of the Nation to which it had "assured to preserve", then the second party, viz., the Union of India, is clearly the aggrieved party and, therefore, has a right to ask the first party to meet the terms of the accession agreement or, in case the first party has not complied, has a right to revisit the terms of the original accession. This means that articles 370 and 37-A are subject to review and renegotiation, or even abrogation.

I suggest that the INDIAN SC ask the J&K High Court to verify that the state and its people have not violated the above. If anyone is found guilty of that violation of the constitution law, should be arrested for breaking the laws of the state.

I hope the SC does not back out when the case opens for hearing and provides a deferment a backhanded win to the separatists. This talk of civil war, revolt should not scare us. We already have a war on our hands, let us face it together and let the government do its job and impose the will of the Indian people. Let the court simply answer the legal question at hand. 35A has not gone through the due process of law and hence invalid and not part of the Indian constitution.

Both the J&K constitution and Article 370 (and 37-A) have been violated by the people of J&K (read the valley kashmiri muslims). Let the high court judges in J&K first enforce their own state's constitution and the laws that go with it. Hurr-rats are in serious violation of the laws of the land. Declare them illegal aliens, take away their passports and kick them out.

Otherwise to discuss 37-A with the state is moot. The right place for it is in the dustbin of history.

Expect it to be long drawn. If the SC strikes down Art35A which it should there will be a law and order problem in Kashmir which the govt will not want in an election year.

It is important to break the enthusiasm of NaPaki backers, let them keep calling the strikes for few months. Till then keep giving new dates till they get bored of it. Then strike these unconstitutional articles in one go. These must be thrown out - J&K people enjoy those rights which are denied to others in the country. There should be unified law in the country - no more religion or cast based laws.

Actually, this is the right issue for the election year. Those who oppose the removal of article 35 and 370 aren't going to vote for the govt anyway, so what is the point in deferring?

And as for law and order, there has always been something every couple of years. We'll be OK

art 35A is a blot
https://www.tribuneindia.com/news/jammu ... 34481.html
Top athlete ‘victim’ of Art 35A Dalit girl fails to get job, vows to take legal battle to logical end
Unfazed by politicisation of the Article 35A controversy across the state, Radhika Gill, a 18-year-old Dalit and a top athlete of Jammu, on Wednesday vowed to take her fight for the “dignity and self-respect” of her marginalised community to a logical conclusion.
“It is a battle for the liberation of our community from the yoke of worst-ever slavery,” observed Radhika, who is challenging the constitutional validity of Article 35A in the Supreme Court.
“We have challenged the existence of this Article. Let the politicians debate whether it good or bad for people,” she said.

and
Despite qualifying for all tests of the Central forces during a recruitment rally, Radhika’s candidature was rejected as she could not produce domicile certificate or state subject.
“When I approached the authorities concerned, they bluntly told me we are eligible for getting only non-permanent residents certificate, according to which we are eligible only for the job of sweepers in the state government sector,” said Radhika.
Radhika showed excellence in the 14th state athlete meet held recently, but for employment, she is only eligible for the job of sweeper due to the provisions of Article 35A.
Charan Dass, her grandfather, was among those Valmiki families who were brought from Punjab by then Prime Minister of J&K Bakshi Ghulam Mohammad in 1957 with a promise to provide them all rights. “The third generation of our community is facing slavery and the future of our educated youth is bleak,” rued Gharu Bhatti,

and futhering the islamo fascist narrative of Art 35A being vital for nation building and sundry other BS.
if Art 35A is implemented in a gender neutral manner ex CM Omar Abdulla and his father also ex CM Dr Faruk Abdulla will also lose their Status as State Subject

http://www.dailyexcelsior.com/will-go-t ... 35-a-omar/
excerpts
Will go to any extent to defend 35-A: Omar
National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah today said the leadership of the State, cutting across all divides and differences, owed it to the future generations to safeguard and protect Article 35-A from all over and covert machinations sponsored by the powers that be.

recruits now go across the border at the Attari- Wagah border and return via the LOC after getting arms and terror training
excerpts
Militant recruits in Kashmir have adopted a new strategy to get arms training in Pakistan. They travel on valid visas and infiltrate back into the Valley through the treacherous Line of Control after receiving training.
Of the five Kashmiri militants killed along the LoC in Kupwara this year, at least four had visited Pakistan through the Wagah border on valid documents, a top police official said. The five were buried in Kupwara as they were believed to be from Pakistan. However, the bodies had to be exhumed after their families here identified them.
J&K DGP Shesh Paul Vaid termed it a “new phenomenon”. “While many such militants have been detained, it seems they are now finding it hard to return via Wagah and are taking the LoC route.”
Another officer said a “well-knit militant network” was managing visas and documents. The police say the individuals first acquire a passport and get a recommendation letter from their contact to obtain a visa from the Pakistan High Commission. The purpose of visit mentioned is usually meeting a relative or studies.
