Article 370 gave corruption and cruelty only: Kashmir made slaves of us Dogras and Jammu. This tyranny had to end


09 August 2019

[Kashmir's leaders ruined their region with militancy, were cruelly indifferent to Ladakh and totally oppressive to Jammu. It's time for that to change and us Dogras to regain our voice]

In the last few days, following the abrogation of Article 370, I have been getting calls about celebrations all across Jammu city.
I have personally witnessed one in my mohalla — and the reasons to celebrate, as the people of Dogra would say, even with cautious optimism, are many.
For starters, equal rights for women, Dalits, West Pakistani refugees and the Gorkhas.
And this automatically means an end to the slavery that had been imposed upon the Jammu region, and especially Dogras, by the Kashmiri hegemony since 1948.
With the expected delimitation, we are now hopeful for a larger representation in the Assembly too. It will finally level the playing field for all stakeholders in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K).
The last 70 years, even with the maximum funds flowing to J&K, were not ones of development or welfare for us.This money has always only been pocketed by a few families in Kashmir — corruption of a level not seen in any state. On average, a little more than Rs 3,000 is given per Indian citizen for development — this sum was around Rs 14,000 in J&K.
The money never came to the common man. We can now see that changing.
The Jammu region is the most underdeveloped with no network of roads, and even those that exist left in pathetic condition. The state of infrastructure is unspeakable too — from schools to hospitals. We see that changing now as well.
There are also crucial changes that can't be measured in bricks and mortar.
For years, the Dogras have lived in mortal fear of their Kashmiri political masters. They would speak of the wrongs done to them in hushed tones, in the confines of their homes, but never openly, fearing for their jobs, postings and promotions.
That fear is now gone.
As is the existential threat we Dogras lived in. The last vestiges of our history and culture were eroding rapidly. We were helpless spectators of our own ruin. The end was near with the way things were going. But it doesn't need to go in that direction anymore.
The young were forced to leave their homes for jobs. Our cities were fast becoming old and grey, with unemployment at its highest levels. The youth was waiting for the elusive government jobs in an environment of a dead private sector. A lady I met recently said, “My son can return home now, as new jobs and opportunities will be created.”
Considering the strategic location of the state, the Dogras are also expecting some filtering process on who can buy the land and live along the borders. Nationalist Dogras have been on the frontline at our borders, acting as a defence, complementing the armed forces throughout.Considering the stakes and the security issues, the territorial integrity of India must be given the highest priority.
Though I am sad as a Dogra to see the break-up of a vast and glorious state created by my ancestors, the communal Kashmiri leaders had left no other option.
We had been pushed to the wall. No one could see a way out but this. I will never forgive the Kashmiri leadership for breaking what the Dogras built. They did this by their sheer arrogance and corruption — playing with separatism, so their fiefdoms could be safe, allowing terrorism so their coffers could be filled.
Jammu and Ladakh never mattered. Union Territory has been a long-standing demand of the Ladakhis and they finally got what they wanted and deserved. I am sad to see them go — but happy that a new dawn awaits them.
Finally, you are either an Indian or not.
There is no in-between.
The Kashmiri leaders never spoke of Jammu and Ladakh. The only character they said they would protect unto their death was the 'Muslim character'.
The 'unique identity' professed by the Kashmiri leaders meant, in fact, fighting against secularism and equality for women, Dalits and refugees. They had no room for justice. They did not even have room for the Kashmiri Pandits or the poor Kashmiri Muslim in the villages who was a helpless pawn in their evil game. They were indifferent to Ladakh and oppressive towards Jammu. Dogras have been made invisible and voiceless for seven decades.
This was not a 'special' identity.
This was an identity that was regressive and communal.
It was not worth protecting. It had to give way.
As a Dogra and someone from the Jammu region, I hope the nation will recognise and acknowledge us, our history and our patriotism now. We will finally be empowered stakeholders in our own land.

Article 370 was most useful to Pakistan: It helped Pakistan spread poisonous militancy and misery in Kashmir

" CHANAKYA NITI ON Articles 370/35A "

Modi -Shah planned the historic August 5/6, 2019 removal of Art 370 extremely smartly and covertly in a step by step manner from the day they joined hands with PDP almost 4 years back to form a coalition Govt in J&K!

This was severely criticised by the opposition and many Modi Bhakts too!

Take a few minutes and read this to know how brilliant Modi Govt strategy was!

Step1. Form the Govt with PDP on the pretext of obeying the mandate of people of J&K to
investigate and understand in minute details all the inner secrets of governance of J&K Govt since 1954. Once they had all the details, BJP withdew the support from PDP’s Mehbooba Mufti Government. This was the most Important decision so that the power to give consent to any bill could be transferred to the the Governor!

Step 2. Presidential order to transfer power of J&K assembly to Indian Parliament was passed in 2018 itself using the power of President of India under Article 356.

Step3.. In order to validate it further and remove any objection from opposition parties
through the Supreme court, a new SC/ST amendment was brought in and passed using this
power and as expected HC or SC courts did not or could not say anything but agree!

Step 4. Now that validation to SC/ST bill was done, the power of Governor became
unquestioned in any court. Using the precedent of 1952, the power of constituent assembly
was transferred to the State assembly and the power of state assembly had already been
granted to the Governor of J&K since 2018! SO THE TRAP WAS LAID WAY BACK IN JUNE 2018 ITSELF WHEN BJP QUIT COALITION GOVT TO COLLAPSE THE J&K GOVT FOR GOVERNOR TO TAKE OVER! When the Ajit Doval and his intelligence boys made the governor aware of serious efforts being made by opposition to form the coalition in J&K, Governor dissolved the assembly! So, the the solution of assembly to prompt old dynasties from taking back J& Rule was part of an overall game plan! The govt formation with PDP was only held on until all the above conditions were being crystallised!

Summary of game plan:

1.Form govt in J&K to dissolve it at the appropriate time.

2.Withdraw support to empower the governor.

3. Bring in dissolution of assembly and bring in President Rule in J&K

4.Use Art 356 to empower the J&K governor to take on the rights of the dismissed
J&K Parliament!

5.Validate the power of Governor from SC after they having ratified the new SC/ST bill

6.Use 1952 precedent to tranfer power to the J&K assembly which in turn got transferred
to J&K Governor..

7. President declares his right to abrogate 370 and simultaneousl bills to make Articles 370 / 35A toothless and powerless on our constitution is passed in RS on August 5,2019 and LS on Aug 6, 2019 both by 2/3rd majority!

IMPOSSIBLE MADE POSSIBLE AFTER 72 YEARS by MODI-SHAH-DOVAL giving a stinging slap on all anti nationals who dared this MSD trio to remove Art 370!

As to why bifurcation of J&K and Ladakh was done INSTEAD of Trifurcation as conjectured
by various experts, here is the possible explanation!

In the instrument of accession signed by Maharaja Hari singh in 1947/48 with Union of India, it mentions 'Jammu and Kashmir! Ladakh was probably not even mentioned!
(Some one ratify this!)

The entity, 'Jammu and Kashmir' must exist as one State because POK was part and parcel of J&K in 1947/48 when instrument of accession was signed!

This must be kept separate to later integrate POK into our J&K which was rightfully ours! In future as and when India claims or demands PoK, then this signed instrument of accession would be needed to show that accession was for entire J&K that included the POK that was allowed to be taken by Pakistan later by the devious collusion of Nehru and Sheikh Abdulla! The crucial timing was withdrawal of BJP from coalition government in J&K!

BJP withdrew just a year before General elections!

Now they just had to wait till election commission announced date of General elections.

But JK parties began the formation of a coalition to fight in State Election!

But before this could happen, alert BJP and the Governor of J&K stopped them in their tracks!

However, the early dissolution of assembly created another problem.

Now the Elections could be forced by opposition to hold J&K elections concurrent with
General Elections! Election commission however did not relent. And the Home ministry rightly raised the security issues and elections to J&K State were postponed. The power remained still with the Governor. ??

Mehbooba understood this game so did Omar Abdulla and the Cong. Dynasty think tanks! They
all cried and still are crying albeit this time with Pakistanis!

Now, there was no threat to the power of governor till J&K elections for legislature would be announced!

Time was then ripe to pass the SC/ST amendment bill and 10% Reservation for EWS for J&K
too! This established power of the governor even further! In this bill consent of the Governor was construed as consent of the State assembly. Now SC can not but reject any petition against 370 because they have already accepted the powers of the Governor being same as dismissed assembly!

Now, the paid PIL lawyers, the Congress Party lawyers cannot convince Supreme courts
judges to backtrack from their earlier decision! If they backtrack, SC and even Congress and their supporters would be deemed anti-Dalit! ?? SC has no option but to throw all the PIL challenges to Govt’s Art 370 decision into trash cans!

Finally all the anti national Judicial activists of India will have found that they can no more fight the the Chanakya NITI of Modi-Shah and Doval including their point men in J&K like Ram Madhav an legal eagles like Subramaniam Swamy!

All along for past almost 13 months, BJP cleverly managed the media, the opposition, the Judiciary and even the naysayers within their own rank with elan and of course total

Indian Nationalists like all of us are really amazed at the brilliant minds of BJP behind this strategy!??????

While everyone was speculating the future of J&K, BJP was quietly acting as a rock solid
wall between NC , PDP and Congress forming an alliance!

Their sole aim to delay the coalition as much as possible till August 5, 2019 was successfully executed!

Even if Mehbooba wanted coalition with Omar, BJP made sure that they fall short of numbers. Sajjad Lone was another division within the parties against 370 along with separatists, who delayed the formation of coalition seeking bigger role in Govt if coalition was win!

And finally the master trump card was that the Article 370 has NOT been removed totally
at all!!!! Rather, it has been made toothless and powerless like a castrated dog or a poison gland extracted Snake! Therefore, no constitutional amendment was required to remove it!!!. Mystery of missing fax is yet to be solved! If question were to be asked regarding legal or constitutional fault in this process, Constitution expert Shri Subhash Kashyap ji on #Article370 said:

"I can only say, constitutionally it is sound, no legal & constitution fault can be found
in it. Govt has carefully studied the matter.As for the question, if it's a political decision, I have nothing to say on that " .

New history has been written and all 115+ crore Nationalists are celebrating this from KASHMIR to KANYAKUMARI! Rest of the population can lump it and live with it!

Bharat Mata Ki Jai!

Vande Mataram!
