Sovereign States Constitutional Matter

Sovereign States Constitutional Matter

Padmini Arhant

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BJP government reserving Article 370 removal in Jammu & Kashmir as India’s internal constitutional matter might be received as such and acknowledged by international political class. 

However, How does Prime Minister Narendra Modi justify his decision to intervene in neighbor Nepal’s similar and rather positive development in constitutional amendment declaring Nepal a secular state renouncing the traditional Hindu majority national identity to which India imposed unilateral economic blockade for nearly seven months hurting the weak, poor, vulnerable and mainstream Nepalese population deprived of essential food supplies, medicines and critical trade costing lives and livelihoods in the small developing country, Nepal?

Unlike Jammu & Kashmir situation post Article 370 abrogation by incumbent PM Narendra Modi government, Nepal’s constitutional measure was a progressive step towards inclusion of minority groups and other demography transcending religion, ethnicity and nativity. While India exercising sovereignty on Article 370 action, PM Narendra Modi not recognizing Nepal’s sovereignty to implement constitutional revision and reprimanding the neighbor with severe economic sanction confirms double standard.

When bigger nations assert authority on smaller counterparts for political reasons and simultaneously rebut global citizenry legitimate concerns over the former’s engagement in Jammu & Kashmir albeit India’s union member, the response is anything but convincing or satisfactory.

PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah’s claims on Jammu & Kashmir that eliminating Article 370 would turn the lives around for the state’s citizens unfortunately and evidently negative from ground reality. When the Central government apparently had so much confidence on their audacious act of revoking Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir to be celebrated by Kashmiris across the spectrum, 

What is the need for extended curfew denying all citizens basic access to survival and health requirements paralyzing existence?

What is the purpose behind detaining state political party prominent members with whom BJP and Congress party at the Center have forged alliance and run state governments in Jammu & Kashmir?

Why is PM Narendra Modi government moving ahead with local city at municipal level election on October 24th under lockdown position in Jammu & Kashmir?

Any democratic nation would provide explanations to all above mentioned circumstances and earnestly strive to relieve the affected citizens from the ongoing duress returning the state to normalcy for the people to continue their lives without any fear, obstacles and threats to their fundamental rights as well as freedom. 

Thank you.

India – Economic Crisis And Jammu Kashmir Ground Reality

August 10, 2019

India – Economic Crisis

And

Jammu Kashmir Ground Reality

Padmini Arhant

The videos from third party alternative news outlets discuss and disclose India’s state of affairs on economy and Jammu Kashmir citizens anguish over inability to reach family and avail essential services in the aftermath of government’s overt authority. 

Source – Newsclick – Thank you.

India’s economic crisis is hardly a matter of concern for those in government involved in exacerbating problems like Trifurcation of Jammu Kashmir & Ladakh with centralization of power assuming overwhelming jurisdiction.

Why do governments evade economy? 

Whenever the government has no real effective solutions or robust economic policy to deal with soaring unemployment, slowing business and economic sector on the whole, inflation, credit crunch, agrarian distress, industrial slump in consumer and capital goods, real estate downturns, stock market and currency value decline among myriad economic woes, the government strategy is to distract suffering population attention to anything political, social or religious event rather than economy. 

India’s incumbent government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah are leading the nation towards point of no return with dismal economic conditions taking toll on ordinary lives and businesses nationwide.

On Jammu KashmirWhy Kashmiris now declared Indian citizens continue to remain in lock down denying them communication access via telephone, internet and local media?

What is the government agenda behind massive troop deployment in the valley having been downgraded from statehood to union territory under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah direct control?

Why are the political leaders and prominent party members with whom PM Narendra Modi government forged alliance until recently in Jammu Kashmir held in detention?

What exactly is the government plan considering naturalized Kashmiris as Indian subjects following recent abrogation of Article 370 and 35A are experiencing Modi Shah wrath of human rights violations barely known to the rest of the nation or the world for that matter due to communication black out since the rapid abolition of statehood?

How democratic is it for government to deny own citizens in Jammu Kashmir – the inalienable rights to contact family, relatives and members of community within and outside the territory in indefinite curfew?

When is RSS run BJP government and political class going to abrogate and eliminate archaic abhorrent caste system in India while denouncing Triple Talaq (Divorce) and gender discrimination alienating females in property inheritance deceptively cited as Article 370 component as antiquated practice?

No government is above law and no heads of the state have the authority to impose violent restrictions depriving people normal existence.

Any government engaged in such activities could not be democratic exposing the true characteristics of unconstitutional authoritarian governance that sooner than later meet undesirable conclusion.

Unfortunately, Jammu Kashmir citizens are victims of Modi Shah government malfeasance that is being allowed with political opposition complicity and others choosing to remain silent spectators in society barring few exceptions voicing their opinions and objection to the ongoing unruly unconventional politics in the name of ending status quo only prolonged to a greater devious political goals to benefit self and vested interests. 

Jammu Kashmir citizens deserve fair treatment and importantly normal environment that are prohibited under government order that are in serious violation of citizens civil, democratic and constitutional rights.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s latest address to the nation on Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh trifurcation is least convincing at best given ground reality in the valley and Kashmiris dire straits and alarming at worst reflecting PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah’s absolute disregard for basic human rights extending their political legacy from Gujarat tenure endangering democracy. 

India cannot afford a government exceeding limits in every respect from misrepresentation, misinformation to miscalculation of political, economic and social outcome as a result of egregious recalcitrant approach ignoring common plight. 

India rising to the occasion and urging Modi Shah government to respect life and human rights in Jammu Kashmir along with directing focus on the ailing economy is the need of the hour.

Thank you.

India – Pulwama Terror Attack, Kashmir. Warning to Jaish-e-Mohammed, Pakistan

February 20, 2019

India – Pulwama Terror Attack, Kashmir

Warning to Jaish-e-Mohammed, Pakistan

Padmini Arhant

 

The recent terror attack in Pulwama, Jammu & Kashmir claiming 40 to 44 lives among Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is condemned while extending support in prayers to victims families for strength and courage to deal with the loss of their loved ones in the heinous crime against humanity.

The following video has message for Pakistan’s leadership, Army, ISI and the terror faction Jaish-e-mohammed in particular since the network acknowledged responsibility for the suicide bomber attack against security forces in Kashmir last week. 

The video is in Urdu and Hindi for better understanding among viewers in Pakistan and India. 

The external powers providing shelter and immunity to terrorists on crimes against Indian civilians in Kashmir and rest of India, not to mention defending terror networks violence is deeply regrettable. 

Such ill-conceived actions delivers on What goes around will definitely come around.

Thank you.
