Pakistan picking up Article 35-A raises many eyebrows in Delhi

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Aug 18: Pakistani interference in India's internal affairs is not a new phenomenon; it is as old asPakistan. Ever since its formation on August 15, 1947 on the basis of religion, Pakistan has been interfering in the India's internal affairs in a most brazen and shameless manner. Leave alone the four full-fledged wars it imposed on India in 1947, 1965, 1971 and 1999 and the ongoing over 28-year-old low-intensity proxy war which has consumed many soldiers and civilians and cause a huge loss to the Indian exchequer.
However, what it did on Friday was just extraordinary. Islamabad knocked at the doors of the United Nations Secretary General and sought his support against the moves in Delhi which seek abrogation of Article 35-A on the ground that it was applied to Jammu & Kashmir on May 14, 1954 in an unconstitutional manner and also on the round that Article 35-A was the Nehru's biggest onslaught on the unity and integrity of India.
Pakistan's new Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif Friday sought the attention of the UN Secretary General towards what Pakistan called India's move to change Jammu & Kashmir's demography by abrogating Article 35-A.
Pakistan took this obnoxious line after the US State Department's International Religious Freedom Report for 2016 (RFR) was released on Tuesday in Washington by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
In Pakistan, the IRFR attributed the attacks on Hindus to claims of blasphemy against Islam. It said: "Members of religious minority communities stated the government was inconsistent in safeguarding minority rights, and official discrimination against Christians, Hindus, Sikhs and Ahmadis persisted".
By picking up Article 35-A of the Indian Constitution, Pakistan crossed all the lines and also gave New Delhi a handle to take on those in Kashmir, including Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah, Ghulam Ahmad Mir, Saif-ud-Din Soz, and even elements in the state government, who have been opposing the move of the "We The Citizens" on Article 35-A. Pakistani stand on Article 35-A has given New Delhi to understand that Pakistan and elements in Kashmir were working in perfect union son to cause harm to Indian sovereignty.
Since the Pakistani provocation was grave, the response of the ruling BJP was also very strong. The BJPon Friday said that Article 35-A was adopted in a hush hush manner; it's unconstitutional and Pakistan had no right to poke its nose in what the BJP called "India's purely internal affair". The BJP also said that "Article 35-A was a constitutional issue and the Supreme Court will take a final call on it and deliver its verdict on Article 370". The BJP also accused certain Kashmir-based outfits of working with Pakistan to hart the Indian interests".
The Pakistan interference has turned out to be blessing in disguise for India. For, New Delhi can now tell the Kashmiri separatists and other Kashmiri leaders that they have no locus standi in the matter, as they are working as the Pakistani agents.
