Supreme Court adjourns Pakistani prisoners’ deportation case to 14th November, 2017

A Division Bench of the Supreme Court of India comprising JJ Mr. A.K. Sikri & Mr. Ashok Bhushan today  directed the counsels of the Union of India to file ‘status report’ on the foreign prisoners  mostly from Pakistan, POK and Afghanistan who have been suffering in different Indian jails for more than a decade without trial. The Union of India in its rejoinder in writ petition no.310/2005 filed by Prof.Bhim Singh had admitted that several foreign prisoners had been released and there were 254 such prisoners in different Indian jails, mostly Pakistanis and residents of POK.

Prof.Bhim Singh submitted before the Supreme Court that several prisoners from Pakistan and POK are suffering for years in different Indian jails, mostly, detained under the J&K Public Safety Act. He strongly argued that no prisoner can be detained for more than two years under PSA, J&K.

The Union of India was directed in May this year to file status report on the POK and Pakistani prisoners who have been detained in different Indian jails and what was the reason. The Supreme Court had fixed this day, 26th July, 2017, to hear the matter.

Prof.Bhim Singh regretted that Union of India has not considered that direction given by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India regarding the trial and deportation of the Pakistani prisoners who had completed their respective sentences in the respective prisons.

The Division Bench of the Hon’ble Supreme Court granted an opportunity to the counsels representing the Union of India to file the status report and announced that the case shall be listed on November 14, 2017.

          Earlier this morning Prof.Bhim Singh held a meeting of the senior leaders of Jammu Rural and Urban Districts including Samba District. A committee of 15-senior leaders from the Districts was formed which shall supervise the important convention of the JKNPP for the confirmation of the elections of Chairman, State President and the Districts Presidents in the State.

          Prof.Bhim Singh proposed to hold election of the NPP on 19th August, 2017 in a delegate convention that shall be held in Jammu. This 15-Member Committed constituted today shall supervise the convention on 19th August, 2017 in Jammu.

NPP Supremo addresses a strong letter to PM, demanding all Fundamental Rights to J-K Residents, withdrawal of Art. 35(A)

In a strong letter NPP Supremo, Prof.Bhim Singh urged Shri Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India to withdraw Article 35(A) which empowers State Assembly to shadow any fundamental right and deprives the Indian citizens in J&K to share fundamental rights with the Indian citizens in the rest of the country. He pleaded strongly that Article 370 needs to be amended so as to empower the Parliament of India to legislate, at least, in respect of the subjects which Maharaja Hari Singh acceded himself with the Union of India namely, Defence, Foreign Affairs, Communication and Allied matters.    

          In his letter Prof.Bhim Singh wrote to the Prime Minister that,    

    “I am taking this liberty requesting the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India to call a meeting of the representatives of all political parties operating in the State of J&K. The representatives of the Hurriyat Conference may also be invited without any pre-condition. Every recognised political party functioning in J&K may get an opportunity to convey its suggestions as to what needs to be done at present when our school children stand locked up in their schools, business is closed, the civilians are feeling totally insecured and the governance stands collapsed in the bordering areas in J&K. The Prime Minister of India is urged to convene an urgent meeting in Delhi to seek the public opinion as what is to be done by the Govt. of India at this moment to save the people of J&K from further death and destruction by our neighbourer Pakistan.

          In the meantime, I would like to request the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India on behalf of the Coordination Committee which was established in 2005 to convene a ‘Heart to Heart Talks’ among the representatives of the political and social groups from both sides of Line of Control. We had a very useful meeting in 2005 and again in 2007 which were held in New Delhi where legislators, political representatives and social groups from J&K interacted with the legislators of POK, Gilgit-Baltistan and other social groups.

          I would like to request the Prime Minister to allow the Coordination Committee to hold ‘III Heart to Heart Talks’ among the social and political notables from J&K with the representatives of POK to continue our effort to seek an amicable resolution vis-à-vis Line of Control that falls between J&K and POK and Gilgit-Baltistan.

The war is no solution to seek permanent resolution of the situation prevailing in J&K as well as in Pak-occupied areas of J&K namely, POK and Gilgit. The Coordination Committee would like to hold the meeting in the month of October, 2017 in New Delhi as well as in Islamabad. What has been happening today in J&K deserves immediate attention of the Govt. of India and for that the Govt. of India needs to wake up without any delay. I strongly urge on the Prime Minister of India to think of tomorrow and find a way out to ensure that peace returns in J&K with justice to all the people whether in Ladakh, Kashmir Valley or in Jammu Pradesh.

I urge the Hon’ble Prime Minister to request the President of India to advice the Governor of J&K to go for Governor Rule in J&K in the interest of the people J&K in particular and the people of India in general. The present Assembly needs to be dissolved without delay which the Governor can do by invoking Section 53 of the Constitution of J&K itself. The Governor should intervene under Section 92 of J&K Constitution to take over the administration of J&K for the reason that the present Govt. has collapsed and has failed to function. This was admitted publicly by the Chief Minister of J&K while admitting that the foreign intervention in Kashmir has created the present situation in Kashmir and the Govt.of J&K stands helpless. This admission by State Chief Minister is sufficient to lead to the conclusion that the State Govt. has failed to function and has become non-functional because of the foreign intervention in the State of J&K. There is no way out to save the State of J&K from further death and destruction. The Army it appears is also loosing patience which could be understood by the most shocking  and tragic incident today when an Army Naik could not control his frustration and shot an Army Major in the Uri Sector. This does not need further explanation. This situation needs to be handled very carefully.

          There is a need to integrate J&K with the Union of India in the light of spirit of the command of the Instrument of Accession which was signed by Maharaja Hari Singh on 26th October, 1947 and ratified by the then Governor-General of India next morning on 27th October.
I assure the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India that every Indian shall support the Prime Minister if his government advises the President of India to amend Article 370 of the Constitution of India so as to extend the spirit of the Instrument of Accession. The President of India is fully authorised under Article 370 itself to integrate the State of J&K with the rest of the country by amending Article 370 through Presidential Order. The President does not need any approval of any non-existing Constituent Assembly which was constituted in J&K in 1952 and came to a close on 26th January, 1958 when J&K Constitution was made applicable to the State of J&K only temporarily.  The Indian Constituent Assembly itself had given this provision as ‘temporary provision’, Article 370.

          This is the only way when the Fundamental Rights shall be extended to the State of J&K and the people of J&K shall not fall victim to the blunders committed by the Central Govt. by adding Article 35A in the Constitution of India giving commanding power to the Legislative Assembly of J&K when it was not even born in 1954.”

NPP Supremo invited to participate in ‘Main Mathura Hun’

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party was invited to participate in three-day seminar, ‘Main Mathura Hun’ organized by Neo News Channel, Mathura, known for thousands of years relations with Lord Krishna. Several prominent politicians, historians, intellectuals, media persons are participating in the seminar.

Prof.Bhim Singh gave the message of unity, integrity and oneness of India. He congratulated the organizers and assured full cooperation from Jammu and Kashmir. He said that only way out to strengthen National Integration is one Flag and one Constitution from Kanyakumari to Kashmir so that secular India shall grow as one Nation with justice and equality for all.

NPP reminds Indian Prime Minister how PM missed basic issue of sovereignty of Palestine

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party & expert on the history of creation of Zionist State of Israel and its legitimacy today expressed serious concern on the deliberate failure of Shri Narendra Modi, the Indian Prime Minister (presently in Israel) to take up the strong issues relating to Israel and Palestine problem threatening the world peace that can plunge the whole world into war as it had happened earlier. Prof.Bhim Singh questioned Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi about his real intention/mission to visit the Zionist State (a divided zone of Palestine) without touching Palestine being the first Indian Prime Minister to visit a splinter State of Palestine called Israel.

Prof.Bhim Singh questioned Prime Minister Modi to let the entire country know what was his mission to visit Israel, ignoring India’s centuries old friend, Palestine. How much his visit cost and how many Indian Jews he called on? Why he failed to visit Beersheba, a small District in Israel where majority of the Indian Jews have been residing in pain and even under nourished. Prof.Bhim Singh had called on the protesting Indian Jews in Beersheba (Israel) in 1971 during his world tour on peace mission. He had also mentioned the plight of the Indian Jews which he said continues to be the same. The Indian Jews have been treated as cleaners and still their condition is the same. Not a single office is held by the Indian Jews in the entire Jewish society in Israel. There is not a single Indian Jews holding any responsible rank in the Jewish Army in Israel. This was the situation when he visited Israel and it continues to be the same even today. Bhim Singh said with all responsibilities. Why Prime Minister addressed the so-called gathering of the  Indian Diaspora Jews in Tel-Aviv and not in Beersheba?

Prof.Bhim Singh said that so-called seven agreements signed by the Indian Prime Minister with his counter part Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel-Aviv do not mean anything for the benefit of Indian people, farmers, working class even for the scientists and researchers in India. He questioned Prime Minister’s statement asking Shri Modi what kind of mutual benefit the Indian farmers shall gain from his agreement with Israel out of the so-called Innovation Fund worth USD 40 millions.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that India is a leading country in the world which has been pursuing peaceful efforts to ensure that nuclear bombs are banned and there shall be peaceful co-existence among the nations in the world. He questioned complete silence of Shri Narendra Modi, the Indian Prime Minister hailing from the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi that what kind of message he is carrying for the people of Palestine who have been squeezed to the bottom by Israel with the support of Anglo-American Bloc right since the illegal creation of Israel since 1948? What message Shri Modi ji carried for the great people of Palestine who have been suffering for centuries and now under the illegal occupation of Israel (illegal occupation of the land of Palestine has been announced by the United Nations in its Resolution 242) in 1965 when Israel illegally, forcibly and in utter violation of all International Laws took over control of entire land of peace, the land of Prophets. Prof.Bhim Singh asked Shri Modi ji could he pronounced his judgment on the declaration of Mahatma Gandhi in 1935—Palestine belongs to the Palestinians in the same way as England belongs to the English and France to the French.

Prof.Bhim Singh called the historians to announce their decision in GEO-LEO optical link and cooperation in Electric Propulsion for small satellites which has been signed by the Indian Prime Minister. Indian Prime Minister with Israeli Prime Minister agreed to do much more together to combat terrorism to protect their strategic interests. The people of great India would like to know from the Hon’ble Prime Minister how Shri Narendra Modi ignored our oldest historic relationship with the people of Palestine in particular and the Arab World in general who have been associated with our culture and civilisation for centuries? How Prime Minister ignored the advice of Mahatma Gandhi that Palestine belongs to the Palestinians? How Prime Minister ignored that it was Israel which has been using all undesirable, unacceptable, unpermissible and outdated means and methods to suppress and oppress the sons and daughters of Palestine seeking implementation of United Nations Resolutions mainly 181, 242, 338 and the rest so that the Palestinians shall also enjoy the basic human rights as the citizens of Palestine? Prof.Bhim Singh asked Shri Narendra Modi why he did not express India’s concern for the welfare and statehood for the people of Palestine who have been living in most humiliated situation and have not been granted the sovereignty by Israel and its sponsors in the West in violation of United Nations Resolutions even.

Prof.Bhim Singh declared that the National Panthers Party and Indo-Palestine Friendship Society shall hold an International Conference in India on the rights of Palestinians in 2017.
