Let us unite and crush Article 35A, the anti-national forces of Kashmir
This obnoxious article was introduced in the Constitution by the then President Rajendra Prasad on the advice of the Nehru cabinet WITHOUT the sanction of Parliament!! A huge fraud was committed on the nation just to appease separatist elements of Kashmir. Among other things, this anti-national article curbs the right of Indians from other states from taking permanent residence in J & K and buying property there.
Separatist leaders, who are paid agents of Pakistan, called for a Kashmir bandh to put pressure on the Supreme Court which is going to decide the constitutional validity of 35 A
Although, a Kashmiri can relocate to any part of India and buy property! You will find Kashmiris in almost all states doing business or in service and own properties unhindered. They are welcome everywhere. But, you can go to Kashmir only as a tourist or a pilgrim and spend your money there. But you cannot settle down there or buy an inch of the property. Why this double standard?
Also, if a J& K woman marries a man from outside the state their children can’t get permanent resident status!! They are treated illegitimate!! Can there be a more bizarre law?? Hence Article 35A HAS TO GO!! In fact, Article 370, which was visualised as a temporary provision, too should go in the national interest. ONE NATION, ONE LAW!!
Separatist leaders, who are paid agents of Pakistan, called for a Kashmir bandh to put pressure on the Supreme Court which is going to decide the constitutional validity of Article 35A. Let us unite and crush the anti-national forces of Kashmir. We have tolerated their nonsense far too long. Jai Hind!!!
