Stand with India

One nation, one constitution spirit has become a reality now by abrogating of Articles 370 and 35A

What was the reason behind revocation of Article 370 and 35A?
The system that prevailed over the past seventy years had aggravated separatism and given birth to terrorism. It had encouraged dynastic rule and in a way strengthened the foundations of corruption and discrimination.

Indian constitution guarantees secular and democratic governance for all Indians irrespective of their race and religion. Unfortunately Kashmir Valley of J & K state , which has a 70% Muslim population in 1947 at the time of joining the union of independent India, has now become 96.4% Muslim due to the genocide, terror and discrimination of its Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist communities, especially the people known as Kashmiri Pandits.

Article 370 is a Temporary, transitional provisions it’s NOT “Special“. Some of the discriminatory and non-democratic provisions of Article 370 will shock the law-makers and citizens of Australia.

Kashmir has a separate constitution, diverse to the secular and democratic foundations of the Indian constitution; this literally amounts to dual citizenship

A non-Kashmiri marrying a Kashmiri does not have any rights in Kashmir
No rights to minorities and victimization of other tribes.
Human waste was still carried out on head with bare hands in Jammu Kashmir because of 370.
Right to Information law (RTI) applies to all of India except in Kashmir
Prohibition of Child marriage law, child labour prevention applies all of India except Kashmir
Astonishingly, per Article 35A, Kashmir’s Hindu Valmiki community can only work as sweepers in the state, despite being educated

In 1948, Government of India complained to the UN Security Council under Article 35 of UN Charter on aggression by Pakistan. In several forums, including the UN, the following atrocities by Pakistan on the cohorts below have been highlighted.

Pakistan Occupied Jammu Kashmir(POJK) Refugees
West Pak Refugees
Kashmiri Hindu displaced from the Kashmir Valley in 1990
War displaced persons from Chamb in 1947, 1965 and 1971.
Terrorism affected people of Jammu and Kashmir region
Human rights violations in Gilgit-Baltistan (GB)
Demographics are being changed by introducing Chinese, Punjabis and pakhtoons of others regions to GB.
As an example, a few details about the GB region;
80% of schools are not functioning, no higher education facility
Lack of basic infrastructure like roads
Status of women is so poor, women are still treated as mere sex objects
Women have no right to education and work

The abrogation of Article 370 and 35A has been carried out in both Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha (upper and lower house) by two-thirds majority. This means that everyone wanted this decision, but perhaps they were waiting for somebody to initiate the same and carry it forward.

Poverty reduction and empowerment
Equal opportunity creation at par with rest of India, in education and jobs
Development as a Medical tourism hub for the Middle East and East Asia
International exposure to the local handicraft industry and culture
Promotion as a premium tourism destination at par with European standards
Dalit brothers and sisters living there, get the rights which they have been deprived of so far.
Women of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh get their rights.
Rights are enjoyed by tribals in India is now enjoyed by Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh communities like Gujjars, Bakarwals, Gaddis, Sippies or Balties- all such communities must be empowered with political rights.

The dream of Ék Bharat Shreshtha Bharat is fulfilled now.
