Prashant Bhushan draws a ridiculous analogy between Indian state of JK and Afghanistan, Iraq

This is not the first time that Prashant Bhushan has taken a tendentious stance

At the time when the nation is mourning the loss of its 44 Bravehearts to the dastardly attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammad terrorist, ’eminent’ Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan has drawn a preposterous comparison between Indian Union state Jammu and Kashmir and the sovereign countries of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Bhushan, in his tweet, seems to rationalise Adil Ahmad Dar’s decision of embracing terrorism after being supposedly beaten by troops. He also alludes to the invidious conduct meted out to the Kashmiris by the Indian Armed Forces. Bhushan further alleged that India should take a cue from the US which couldn’t hold control over Afghanistan and Iraq as suicide bombing became rampant there. The Supreme Court lawyer effectively wants India to give up on Kashmir, implying that its insistence to continue holding on to Kashmir might be catastrophic to India like it was for the US in Afghanistan and Iraq.

This is an utterly ridiculous analogy, for Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India, not a sovereign state like Afghanistan and Iraq. Jammu and Kashmir is an Indian state, by the virtue of a treaty signed by Maharaja Hari Singh of erstwhile Kashmir province. Neither is Jammu and Kashmir ruled by a Terrorist group or a despot like the countries of Afghanistan and Iraq were when the US decided to invade it.

Moreover, by equating legitimate Indian rule in Jammu and Kashmir with the illegal invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, Prashant is providing fodder to the terrorist handlers which use such analogies to whip up hatred against India among its cadres. Instead of condemning terrorism in absolute terms, Prashant is not only lending credence to their cause by drawing such a condemnable parallel but is also disparaging the supreme sacrifice made by countless Jawans who have laid down their lives to keep our country safe and secure.

However, this is not the first time that Prashant Bhushan has taken a tendentious stance. In the past, Prashant Bhushan had moved heaven and Earth and got a midnight hearing at the Supreme Court to commute Death Sentence of terrorist Yakub Memon to Life Imprisonment. But the apex court refused to commute his sentence and maintained the capital punishment. Bhushan had then called it a ‘sad day’ for democracy.
