Indian gov has decided to abolish Article-35A. This article defines the permanent resident of Jammu and Kashmir as per which any other Indian has following restrictions in IOK: employement under the State Government, acquisition of immovable property in the State,...

(contd)
settlement in the State, right to
scholarships and such other forms of aid as the State Government may provide. It was brought into effect my Jawaharlal Nehru in 1954.

BJP considers it to be the real demon and has vowed to abrogate it.

(contd)
They believe that the permanent residents have enhanced rights, while others do not even have fundamental rights.

The interesting aspect is that under Article 371-A, Nagaland has special status and no Act of Parliament is automatically extended to Nagaland.

(contd)
Similarly there is a special status for Maharashtra and Gujarat in Article 371. There are special provisions for Assam in Article 371B, Manipur, Andhra Pradesh, Sikkim, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh and Goa but why is BJP adamant on abolishing only the special status for IOK?
When more than 700K Indian troops have failed to crush the freedom movement of Kahsmir, India has decided to build Israeli-style settlements for around 300K Hindu pandits. This is not simply an act of state intimidation over the dispossessed Kashmiri population;

The Hindu Nazis have found their soulmates in the Zionist aggressors and land grabbers. There will be no criticism in the corporate owned Western media of the Hindu Nazis because India is viewed as a lucrative market for doing business with.

(contd)
There are potentially 300 million consumers in India with surplus cash for western luxury goods but there are also more than 400 million Indians living in poverty. Many of them sleep on sidewalks or in shantytowns. Their plight is of little concern to the western do-gooders.
