Bhim Singh’s rejoinder to Rajnath Singh on horrors of Article 370

Prof.Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate of Supreme Court & Panthers Party candidate from Udhampur Parliamentary Constituency has expressed surprise on the statement of BJP President, Shri Rajnath Singh on the gains and loss of Article 370 for the people of J&K.
BJP has ruled India for six years and still ruling half of the states in the country yet its’ leadership has not understood the meaning and scope of Article 370 which is a petty. Prof.Bhim Singh spelled out in his rejoinder to Shri Rajnath Singh that it is because of Article 370 that;
1.    Parliament cannot create an iota of law vis-à-vis Jammu and Kashmir.
2.    Parliament cannot legislate on the three highly sensitive subjects like Defence, Foreign Affairs, Communication etc. though Maharaja Hari Singh had in his Instrument of Accession signed on 26th October, 1947 has expressly penned down three subjects for the Union of India.
3.    That it is because of Article 370 that Constitution of India does not extend to J&K in 64 years.
4.    That it is because of Article 370 that people of J&K have been subjected to serfdom and slavery by virtue of Article 370.
5.    That it is because of Article 370 that J&K has an independent Constitution with separate flag sans fundamental rights. Shri Rajnath Singh, Mr. Narendra Modi and Mr. L.K. Advani have been enjoying fundamental rights incorporated in the Constitution of India since 1950 whereas we the people of J&K have remained denied of all fundamental rights in the J&K Constitution.
6.     Every state has High Court of Judicature whereas in J&K we have the High Court of J&K governed by the authoritarian and discriminatory Constitution of J&K.
7.    J&K is the only state where because of Article 370 the citizens of India are described as ‘State Subjects’ by the Supreme Court of India. The latest judgment of the Supreme Court in writ petition no. 125/2013 decided last month by the Supreme Court.
8.    It is only J&K where 85,000 Pakistani refugees who entered J&K from Pakistani side have not been given any civil or political rights in J&K. Their descents (children and grandchildren etc.) have not been given either civil or political rights in J&K.
9.    It is because of Article 370 that word ‘secular’ has not been incorporated in the preamble of J&K Constitution in spite of Panthers Legislators several bills and resolutions.
10.    It is because of Article 370 that entire Shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi was taken over by the State denying 20,000 baridars their right to livelihood, where head of the state governs a temple.
11.    Let Rajnath Singh ji first understand tragedy of Article 370 and its effects before Mr. Narendra Modi starts debating the subject. That’s why amendment in Article 370 is the only way out.
12.    Let Shri Rajnath Singh know that any emergency law relating to Defence or Foreign Affairs can only be pushed into J&K by a Presidential Order only if the State Govt. appointed by the Maharaja gives its concurrence. The Governor of India still acts as viceroy of J&K though there is no Maharaja anymore nor there is Governor General.
13.    Do not Shri Rajnath Singh and BJP premier Mr. Modi understand the meaning of 370 in six decades that India’s internal & external security stands threatened because of Article 370. What kind of integral part is J&K where Parliament of India has no power to legislate even.
