POINT FOR THOUGHT:- IS IT POSSIBLE TO DIVIDE THE JAMMU-KASHMIR STATE INTO SEPERATE JAMMU, LADAKH and KASHMIR Without ABOLITION OF ARTICLE 370/35-A OF INDIA CONSTITUTION, FOR QUELLING THE FIGHT ON POWER OVER KASHMIR? In view of the constant clashes and bloodshed between the Indian Defense Forces,viz. the Army/ CRPF Jawans, and the Separatists accompanied by Pak terrorists that has disturbed the atmosphere and jeopardised the security of the other citizens and sections of the Jammu-Kashmir State, it needs serious consideration, WHETHER PROVIN- CIAL DIVISIOÑ OF JAMMU/KASHMIR State – into(1)The HINDU majority JAMMU province (and if feasible,the Ganderbal district housing the Kheer Bhavani Temple and Manasbal Lake, as also Pahalgam tehsil, the site of the Holy Amarnath Shrine, plus Anantnag tehsil of the Anantnag district with Mattan,the place of the Martand Sun Temple, of the Kashmir Valley, as the right or share of the Kashmiri Pandits, as one Unit) WITHOUT the Rohingya and Bangladeshi Muslims in their midst. (2)The remaining (Muslim)Dominated Kashmir Valley, and (3)Ladakh, alone or jointly with Jammu, or Kashmir, WITH- or if not feasible – WITHOUT ABOLITION OF ARTICLE 370 and 35-A in any of the Three provinces (BUT, with an independent Hindu Chief Minister/Deputy Chief Minister like Dr.Nirmal Singh, for at least Jammu Province) – is likely to enable easier and effective Law and Order Control in the Kashmir Valley, Jammu and Ladakh! NOT removing Art.370 and Art. 35A may be GOOD in a way, as it can’t be said whether the removal of the Article will lead to influx of moreMuslims like the Afghani Sunni Pathans/Talibans who crept into the Kashmir valley since 1986 and started separatism and terrorism by instiga- ting the local Muslims, or the Rohingya/ Bangladeshi Muslims from outside India, whom we have not been able to evict till today, as also from within India, OR enough Hindus from other states to maintain the demographic balance! For then, there cannot be a discrimination policy that only Dogras and Kashmiri Pandits or only Hindus can come and settle in the J+K state,and that Muslims, Christians, Sikhs – that is, Indians of other religions, or ethnically different communities- are forbidden! However, if the Article has to be retained, some way should be found to resettle the Rohingya+ Bangladeshi Muslim refugees, who are not the natives of Jammu, elsewhere in India,e.g, in the Northeastern states where the population is ethnically closer to the Rohingyas (many of whom are Indo-Mongoloid), and the Art.370 does not exist, instead of Jammu; OR, in Ladakh, which is also populated by Mongoloid people, and would be the easiest place to shift them to, if it is not possible to drive them out from India, nor settle them in Kashmir Valley, or in the NE, since our Government has much sympathy for them. In that case, Ladakh which anyway is ethnically and religionwise different and separate from Jammu, and an annexed territory, may remain with the Kashmir Valley(with which it is connected through the Bandipora district of the Valley), under the Muftis and Abdullahs as part of the State of Kashmir and Ladakh for the time being. The bi-/trifurcation will also facilitate the local Hindus and Buddhists of Jammu+ Ladakh respectively to exercise their regional majority rights, and to vote a Hindu or Buddhist Chief Minister to power in Jammu and Ladakh! The PROBLEM is,”WHO Will Bell The Muftis and Abdullahs to make them acquiesce to this type of Amendment for Bifurcation of J+K for Administrative Convenience, and HOW, even if there may not be any Constitutional Contra- indication to it? This Objective can’t be achieved by imposition of the President’s Rule, for the forthcoming Prez and the present Governor Vohra are more likely to support the Central Govt., and as a corollary, the J + K Govt. (It is not known if some staunch and powerful Hindu like Jagmohan is there now who can be appointed as the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir). Therefore, the People of Jammu will have to adopt some other strategy, like ‘Munh Khulwaneke liye Naak Dabaana’! This can perhaps be induced by making it understood to ‘Whomever It May Concern’ that ignoring or taking unduly for granted the allegience of people of Jammu, Kashmiri Pandits and the people of Ladakh, will cost Central Govt the votes of the People of Jammu and Ladakh besides the Kashmiri Pandits who have been appealing for ‘Panun Kashmir’ since three decades, in the future! If utterly necessary, the support of the entire lobby of the Hindu allies of BJP viz. RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat, Shiv Sena and VHP, may have to be roped in to bring pressure on the topmost concerned BJP leaders in the Govt, like Home minister, Party President, BJP National Secretary etc. and on the local Muslim leaders, for agreeing in the parliament to separate Jammu from Kashmir soon to protect the culture of the Dogras,as they were the Original Rulers of Jammu-Kashmir till independ- ence from the British and dissolution of the PrincelyState,on which Kashmir was bestowed by the British, Not vice versa. So the Hindu Dogras should not be allowed to be reduced to a minority and crushed by the Muslim Chief Ministers of the state- Mufti/ Abdullah, and if such a situation has come to happen due to the linking of J+K as one state, which leads to the whole state becoming a Muslim majority state, with the consequence of only Muslims succeeding in being elected as the Chief Ministers, and the Muslim separatists of the Kashmir valley forming the JK -Liberation Front, thinking the Whole State of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh belongs to them, that is a sinister develop- ment and is a strong ground for early dissociation of the Hindu majority Jammu province from the Kashmir Valley, before its majority status is wiped out by infil-tration of outsiders like the Rohingya and Bangladeshi Muslims, with the connivance of J+K Chief Ministers! After all, Jammu was the original kingdom of the Dogras, while Kashmir was a land ‘sold’ to the Maharajah of Jammu by British, not the other way round. So now if the buyer state Jammu wishes to free itself from diminution by the residents of the purchased land, a d become a separate province, independent of Kashmir, but under Article 370, has it no legal or moral right to do so? Point for Thought!
