Bhim Singh calls on leaders of Ladakh, Kashmir & Jammu Pradesh to fight for inclusion of Fundamental Rights in J&K

Prof.Bhim Singh, the Founder of National Panthers Party & Fighter for maintaining the human dignity and civil rights of the people all over the country, particularly in the state of J&K where the fundamental rights have remained denied the people of J&K (India) as well as to the residents of J&K residing in PoK and Gilgit-Baltistan since 1948 in spite of the fact that Maharaja of J&K acceded to the Union of India on 27th October, 1947 yet the Union of India kept J&K far away from the domain of its Constitution and privilege of fundamental rights. Prof.Bhim Singh expressed surprise that the RSS backed rulers led by Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi have ditched their own cadre by sticking to the domain of Constitution of India sans fundamental rights. Prof.Bhim Singh made a strong appeal to the new generation, the youth and students in J&K to look forward to ensure the seedlings of fundamental rights grow taller so that benefit may reach every Indian citizen residing in J&K.

            Prof.Bhim Singh expressed deep shock that the RSS Prime Minister has stepped into the shoes of the Congress and National Conference governing the State of J&K with a mission of loot, disaster depriving the people of J&K of their fundamental rights which are available to every citizen of India except in the state of J&K which acceded to the Union of India on 26th October, 1947 under the seal and signatures of State ruler, Maharaja Hari Singh.

            Prof.Bhim Singh called on the people of J&K to ensure that fundamental rights incorporated in the Constitution of India in its Chapter-III is made applicable to the residents of J&K so that the residents of J&K may also share the fruits of democracy and the rule of law which have remained denied to them since 1947. Prof.Bhim Singh said that he himself was the victim of political detentions and jails without trial in separate jails in Kashmir, Jammu and even in Delhi and Aligarh. He spent nearly eight years in prisons in Indian democracy. Prof.Bhim Singh said that High Court of J&K is still called ‘The High Court of J&K’ and has not been constituted as the High Court of Judicature as is the case with all the High Courts in the country. He regretted that the fundamental rights available to the citizens of India have remained denied to the citizens of India residing in J&K for the reason that J&K has not been integrated with the Union of India. Article 370 is the wailing wall between J&K and the rest of the country which does not allow fundamental rights/human rights to flow from New Delhi to J&K. Where students protesting or kept under trial for years for the political movement they had initiated in the state of J&K.

            Prof.Bhim Singh said that after the death of former Chief Minister, Mufti Mohd. Sayeed, there is no person who can carry the message of equality and equal treatment for the people of J&K at par with the people in rest of the country. Mufti Mohd. Sayeed had given the clear message that every resident of J&K is a citizen of India with no bankruptcy or difference when he contested election from Uttar Pradesh (India) and became the first Union Home Minister under the leadership of Mr. V.P. Singh. This message has gone to every Kashmiri youth and there is a occasion that every youth of J&K shall work and fight for securing fundamental rights to all the people in the country from Kanyakumari to Kashmir and Ladakh. Prof.Bhim Singh said that this message has been blocked by the ruling parties of J&K and the BJP government in Delhi is trying to sabotage this message for the reason which can only be explained by Prime Minister Modi.

            Prof.Bhim Singh appealed the youth of J&K to join the Panthers Party in J&K which is the only hope to ensure that the people of J&K shall succeed ensuring the fundamental rights to all the people of J&K.Prof.Bhim Singh said that this mission can be achieved by reorganization the state of J&K so that twin states Jammu Pradesh and Kashmir Province could be organized by ensuring all fundamental rights to the people of J&K with one flag. So-called separate constitution of J&K with no fundamental rights is farce, deception and cannot be accepted in 21st century when man has conquered the moon and the mars.

Panthers Party remembers Rajiv Gandhi on his 24th Anniversary of Martyrdom

The Executive of Delhi Pradesh National Panthers Party in an emergency meeting paid homage to Shri Rajiv Gandhi who was assassinated 24 years ago on this day in Tamilnadu. The Panthers Party senior leaders also held a prayer meeting at NPP headquarters wishing peace in the heavens to the departed soul expressing shock on his assassination in young age.

While addressing the Panthers Party leaders, Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party recollected the message he received on the evening of 20th May, 1991 where Shri Rajiv Gandhi invited Prof.Bhim Singh to accompany Mr. Rajiv Gandhi in the following week to Bihar for election campaign. Mr. Rajiv Gandhi told Bhim Singh that Dr. Farooq Abdullah shall also be accompanying them and he (Bhim Singh) should not mind that. Prof.Bhim Singh told his party activists that he agreed with Rajiv Gandhi to visit Bihar the following week. Prof.Bhim Singh said that it was unbelievable tragedy that Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated just the next day in Tamilnadu. In 1999, Prof.Bhim Singh with several Panthers Party leaders visited the site of the tragedy and paid homage to Rajiv Gandhi during his Rashtra Chetna Yatra from Kargil to Kanyakumari.

Prof.Bhim Singh expressed a grave disappointment on the failure of inquiry to investigate the circumstances that led to death of blossoming bud in the orchid of Indian politics.

He also told the party activists that the successive governments failed to hold investigations into the circumstances that led to his death as he (Rajiv Gandhi) was duly informed about a conspiracy to liquidate him. This was on record in a video interview with Yasir Arafat in Tunis in 1992 by Prof.Bhim Singh and his team.

The Panthers Party in a resolution demanded that this day should be remembered as ‘Anti-Violence Day’ throughout the country.

Prominent among those who participated Rajiv Jolly Khosla, Y.P. Dogra, Romesh Khajuria, Balwinder Khosla, Sunita Chaudhary, Om Kishan, Anil Sharma, Dildar Hussain Baig and others.
