Valley leadership on secessionist course
K.N. Pandita Valley’s leading political parties participating in the parliamentary and later on in the assembly elections in Kashmir, despite the boycott calls often given by the known separatists and secessionists, have lately found a pretext behind which they are giving vent to what they have been at pains to hide over the years. NC and PDP heavyweights both have publicly and to the media said that if Article 370 or 35-A are abolished, Kashmir will rejoice on God-sent (read Pakistan-sent) separation from the Indian Union. The choice for the leadership and the people in Kashmir in such a situation would be (a) to declare secession from the Indian Union of the State of ...

Articles 370 & 35A stay or not, J&K stays in India
Straight Talk
K B Jandial The present unprecedented political slugfest on contentious Articles 370 & Art 35A has crossed all redlines with Mehbooba Mufti threatening to secede the day these Articles are abrogated or even tinkled with. It is common with Mehbooba after BJP’s withdrawal from North-Pole-South-Pole alliance Govt, to lash out at Modi, BJP and even Delhi on one count or the other. She has been warning that there would be no one in J&K(includes Jammu & Ladakh also) to give shoulder (kandda) to Tricolour if special status is touched, forgetting that J&K is not any Kashmiri leader’s fiefdom. Moreover,kandda is given to a deceased and our National flag can never die, even in Kashmi...

“Hum Nibhalenge”: says Congress Manifesto
K.N. Pandita On Tuesday, Congress President formally released the party's manifesto for the J&K State titled “Congress will deliver”. The question is not of “delivering”; it is of accepting what is delivered. What the Congress has promised to deliver is an upgraded appeasement package this time wrapped in silk-soft packing stuff. The title “Hum Nibhayenge” carries the subtle meaning that “we shall accommodate you”. Has not Congress accommodated Kashmiris ever since the accession, and of course, at the expense of the other two regions and valley minority sections? In a Sheetalnath (Srinagar) Pandit rally in 1946, Nehru told the large gathering of the Pandits that the only way of s...

How is Presidential Order under Article 370 a fraud?
Straight Talk
K B Jandial While concedingthat the recent Presidential order issued under Article 370 is a deft political move of Modi Govt on the eve of Lok Sabha election but to call it a “constitutional fraud” or “ violation of Article 370” is in fact, a poor understanding of constitutional law besides politicizing it.
