The recent modification to article 370 of the Indian constitution by the Presidential order has kept the clause one thus removing the temporary special status given to Jammu and Kashmir and bringing it at par with any other state/union territory of India, thus disrobing the extra judicial powers and entitlements of the state assembly and the provisions of 35A as the same stands revoked completely. Ironically 370 members voted in Lok Sabha to modify the article 370. Giving the benefit of doubt to the then government, possibly article 370 was a necessity to tide over a given crisis in that peculiar situation and as stated in the provision itself was temporary and it was incumbent upon the then govt to ensure that transition is done smoothly to ensure a union with India as per the constitution of India in toto.
Sadly for last 70 years, due to its misuse by the local govt, proxies by enemy country, malpractices, corrupt politicians and bureaucrats this article with 35a was flogged , separatist sentiments played with, used to blackmail to achieve the ends of vested interests at the cost of the local populace, money of the India Tax payers and alienating the locals with constant brainwashing, radicalising and deprivation of higher education and employment opportunities which in turn resulted in the Jannat becoming a Jahannum, which in turn presume suited the few who were benefitting from the situation, were in power and did not realise the seed which was sown by them was now staring at them as it had become an outgrown DEVIL and they had no gumption as well as any will to deal with it effectively.
In a nutshell miscreants of 5 districts of the whole region of 22 plus districts were holding the state and the country to a ransom with ethnic cleansing of minorities, denying rights as per the constitution of India to all minorities, promoting terror, appropriating wealth, destroying the Sufi and tranquil culture of the region, cornering the wealth , employment opportunities and the trade in only a handful of connected people who were keen to foment trouble to keep their coffers filling and the worst was that the Devil had started spreading like a cancer to the other parts of the country and had to be tackled sooner than later. D evil had to be countered with Dare D evil with a strong Will and long term plan to bring the Jannat back from the jaws of Jahannum.
The current dispensation in India always was against Article 370 as well as 35A and with them getting absolute majority in the current elections, this was always on the cards and with the opposition in disarray they took the call earlier than otherwise. Their failed attempts at coalition govt in Kashmir to achieve the end objective of bringing peace and tranquillity, the current situation in Pakistan, disenchantment in Ladakh and last but not the least, the current goodwill which the current dispensation enjoys in the world forum must have prompted the Daredevil to take the course correction step at the earliest to ensure the achievement of his party objective and hopefully the total integration of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh with India.
Having taken the first step, the real troubles are ahead. Majority in the region by and large will be happy with the change as it should benefit them democratically, economically, socially and securely but the vested interests and enemies from outside and Jaichands within will try and destabilise the move thus it is the primary as well as moral responsibility of the current dispensation to ensure that fruits of the change reach the door step of the last man in mile in the region(Antyodaya) tackling the menace makers and if possible winning them rather than alienating further, easy said than done but when the locals who are sentimental,, currently inconvenienced and silent for short term will turn the other way if they do not see any visible change in their well being and return of normalcy at the earliest.
The Dare the evil has taken the Devil headlong, has the will “Modi hai to Mumkin Hai”, gaining Vishwas by deeds on ground is the “Mantra” and Zero tolerance to Terror is the “Astra”. Be human always.
