For First Time, A Kashmir Shutdown In Support Of Indian Constitution

Centre must tread warily on Kashmir Centre must tread warily on Kashmir

Life across the Kashmir Valley was on Saturday adversely affected due to a shutdown called against the judicial scrutiny of Article 35A that gives irrevocable finality to the special rights to state subjects in Jammu Kashmir state. "Every Kashmiri will take to roads and there will be Valley-wide protests if the State or centre government tries to erode Article 35-A", KEA acting chairman Farooq Ahmad Dar said.

Srinagar (J and K), Aug 12 (ANI): Separatists called for a shutdown in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday to protest against any "attempts" to abrogate against the Article -35A of the Constitution, which bars outsiders from owning property in Jammu and Kashmir - being challenged in the Supreme Court.

Professor Hamida Nayeem said, "We know the logical agenda of BJP and RSS as they want to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir".

Noted academician and political analyst, Siddeeq Wahid said apart from countering the petition against proposed abrogation of Article 35A in a legal manner, it is also important to fight it politically.

"We are part of India and we are Indians". "The Delhi-based media is projecting that by supporting Article 35A Kashmiris are being against rights of women etc".

Nats' Harper leaves game with apparent left knee injury
Saturday's game was delayed three hours with more inclement weather and the rain conditions came into play right away. The series opener Friday was postponed after a lengthy rain delay to be a part of a day-night doubleheader Sunday.

The Union government has rightly parted ways with the state government in front of the Supreme Court. It empowers the state legislature to define permanent residents and then give them special treatment, privileges and rights. The issue is that Article 35A is considered the bedrock of the special status promised to Kashmir.

The J&K Chief Minister, after the meeting, said, "Discussions on 35A have a negative impact on Jammu & Kashmir, it should not happen".

Mehbooba Mufti, during her meeting with Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Prime Minister Modi, is learnt to have stressed the need to strongly defend Article 35 (A), now challenged by an NGO in the Supreme Court under a writ petition, so that the situation in Kashmir is not disturbed.

Abdullah had told her that she should meet the prime minister, all important central ministers and also the BJP leadership to convince the Sangh Parivar against striking down the constitutional provision. Attorney General KK Venugopal is expected to explain before the apex court these aspects.

Mehbooba had met opposition National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah this week to seek the support of his party on the issue.
