Whole country will burn if Article 370 and Article 35A repealed, Indian Constitution will not apply on J&K: Mehbooba Mufti

National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah also threatened that Kashmir will secede if Article 370 is repealed

Apparently rattled by BJP’s commitment towards abrogating Article 35A and Article 370 from the Constitution in its manifesto presented by the party today, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has responded to it by threatening the BJP that if they repeal Articles 35A and 370, the whole country will burn along with J&K.

This can be seen as an implied threat from the PDP leader that if the said articles are repealed, it will be met with violent protests in Jammu and Kashmir and elsewhere in the country. She also said that BJP should not play with fire.

Mehbooba Mufti also said that if Article 370 is scrapped, the Indian Constitution will not be applicable to Jammu and Kashmir anymore. She was responding to news about a PIL that has been filed in Delhi High Court to ban Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti from contesting in elections for their anti-India statements.

She said why waste time in court to ban her from elections, they will automatically be banned from contesting elections after Article 370 is scrapped because Indian Constitution will no longer apply on Jammu and Kashmir after that happens. She added, if you won’t understand, you will be finished. Even your story will not be in the history.

Earlier, Mehbooba Mufti had said that if article 370 and 35A are repealed, India will become an occupational force in Jammy and Kashmir.

BJP’s commitment towards repealing these provisions from the Constitution embodied in its 2019 manifesto appears to have stirred up the hornet’s nest. Similar threats came from National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah also, who swore in the name of Allah and said that Kashmir will secede from India and he would not allow the Indian flag to be unfurled in the state if articles 370 is repealed

Earlier separatist sympathiser Mufti had termed Article 370 as a bridge between India and J&K and said that if the bridge was broken why would a Muslim majority state want to stay with the country. Fuming over the possibility of Article 35A being scrapped, Mufti had given similar threats saying that India would see the worst times since independence if the provision was tampered with adding that the people of J&K might pick up a different flag from the tricolour.

Apparently, more than the people of J&K it is these politicians who have long enjoyed the perks of power, who are feeling threatened by the possibility of this change as they are aware that they will probably become irrelevant for the people of J&K as well for the rest of the country if this happens.
