Complaint against Mehbooba Mufti for making inflammatory remarks over Article 35A forwarded to SSP Jammu

Referring to the removal of Article 35A, Mufti had warned the Central government not to play with fire, else the country would see a situation that it has not seen since 1947 and that she could not tell which flag the people of J&K would pick up instead of the tricolour.

A complaint filed against former J&K Chief Minister and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti for making seditious statements over the removal of Article 35A has been forwarded by Jammu District Magistrate to a senior police officer for examination and appropriate action.

Suresh C Kahjuria, a social activist had filed a complaint with District Magistrate seeking action against Mufti for her remarks. “The complaint seeking action against the PDP president for her seditious statement on the national flag, which represents the national honour and her threat of 1947-like violence erupting in the state if Article 35A is repealed, was forwarded to the senior superintendent of police (SSP), Jammu”, said Khajuria.

In the month of February this year, Mufti had made inflammatory remarks when a petition challenging the validity of Article 35A came up before the Supreme Court for hearing. Referring to the removal of Article 35A, she had warned the Central government not to play with fire, else the country would see a situation that it has not seen since 1947. She had asserted that she could not tell, which flag the people of J&K would pick up instead of the tricolour.

An RTI was filed by Khajuria on March 30 seeking information about action taken on his complaint. He was informed that his complaint has been forwarded to the SSP for examination and appropriate action. “I am directed to forward a copy of the representation received from Khajuria for initiation of action under section 196 CrPC, and a request for filing a complaint against the former Chief Minister for the commission of an offence under section 124-A of Ranveer Penal Code (RPC) and other relevant provisions of laws of the state. In this context, you are requested to examine the complaint and take appropriate action warranted under the law in the matter,” read the letter sent to SSP Jammu by Additional District Magistrate, Jammu.

We had reported in February how Mufti, ahead of the likely hearing in the Supreme Court on the petition challenging the validity of Article 35A of the constitution, had strongly objected to the same.
