The Real Reason Why Article 370 Was Removed From Jammu & Kashmir – Amit Shah Explains

Published

on

Indian Home Minister Amit Shah stated that revoking Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir which gave special status (Many experts term it as unfair status) to the volatile region was, in fact, a tribute to all soldiers martyred on the borders.

Speaking at the 27th Raising Day event of RAF in Ahmedabad, Gujarat Amit Shah said, “Our PM has given an appropriate tribute to all those soldiers who were martyred while securing the nation by abandoning Article 370. This was done so that no other Indian army personnel is martyred again on this land.”

Shah also said how no one had in all these 70 years since Independence thought of paying this tribute to the security forces. “When we were given this enormous mandate for a second time we made sure revoking Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir is the first job that we do for the country,” said Shah.

“With this, Kashmir will now move on the path of development. If anyone tries to create any disturbance in Jammu and Kashmir, remember our soldiers are standing at guard,” Shah added.

“When a nuclear-armed country fights to the end, it will have consequences far beyond the borders. It will have consequences for the world,” Pakistan PM Khan said, adding: “That’s not a threat … It’s a fair worry. Where are we headed? I’ve come here because this is a test for the United Nations. You guaranteed the right to the determination of the people of Kashmir. You have a responsibility.”

Modi Does Not Understand That India-Pakistan Dispute Can Get Horribly Wrong – Imran Khan

In a wide-ranging address to the Assembly’s annual general debate that also covered issues such as climate change, development, inequality and the perils of rising Islamophobia, the Pakistani leader said that when he first came to power, he pledged that his country would work for peace, throughout the world and within its region, including with India.

Khan said he had initially spoken with PM Modi and offered to “work together” to face critical challenges, including poverty and climate change as a way to “build a relationship on trust.” However, unfortunately, no headway was made on any front.

Relations between India and Pakistan continue to disintegrate as tensions rose in Kashmir, including this past February when an Indian convoy was attacked by a  suicide bomber killing at least 50 Indian soldiers.

Pakistan Army Ready For Any Indian Misadventure In Pakistan-Administered Kashmir: Imran Khan

More recently, the PM Khan said, it had become obvious that India was carrying out an “agenda” against Pakistan, particularly when, on 5 August, India had defied UN Security Council resolutions when it revoked Kashmir’s ‘special status’, and increased the number of Indian troops in Kashmir by 180,000, bringing the total number of security forces, according to Khan, to 900,000.

“And they put eight million people in Kashmir under curfew,” he said. “Arrogance makes people do cruel and stupid things,” he continued, adding: “So what is going to do when he lifts the curfew? Does he think the people of Kashmir are quietly going to accept the status quo?”

“What is going to happen when the curfew is removed will be a bloodbath. Has he thought through what happens then?” PM Khan said, wondering: “The people will be out in the streets and what will the soldiers do? They will shoot them.”

He warned that the result would be that “more Kashmiris will be radicalized. And guess what? India will blame [Pakistan] … and the mantra of ‘Islamic terrorism’ will continue.”  Somewhere in the Muslim world, “someone will pick up arms. If there is a bloodbath, Muslims will pick up arms, not because of Islam, but because they will see there is no justice when it comes to Muslims.”

Khan said that if things continue along this road, a face-off between two nuclear-armed nations was all but inevitable. “But before we head in that direction, the United Nations has a responsibility. This is why the United Nations came into being in 1945, to stop [this type of thing] from happening. India must lift this inhuman curfew.”
