Blast from the past: These past tweets of Kashmiri politicians daring PM Modi to scrap Article 370 are amusing

The Internet does not forget.

The Narendra Modi led BJP government today corrected the 70 year old wrong by effectively revoking Article 370 making Kashmir part of India without any conditions and riders. Union Home Minister Amit Shah today in the Upper House of the Parliament moved the motion of integrating Kashmir by its decision on Article 370 and hence by default Article 35A.

While celebrations erupted across the country for the historic move, these old tweets of Kashmiri politicians taunting the government about removal of Article 370 are quite amusing to read.

The last chief minister of the state of Jammu and Kashmir (because the state is now bifurcated into Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and Union Territory of Ladakh) Mehbooba Mufti’s tweets prior to the general elections are quite ‘amusing’, in her own words.

She had said that scrapping Article 370 is a ‘dream’. Guess dreams do come true.

Freelance protestor turned full-time politician Shehla Rashid had about a year ago dared ‘trolls ke papa’ to remove Article 370.

While on a discussion of airfares between Srinagar to Delhi and Mumbai, Rashid had dared ‘trolls ke papa’ (we are still not sure whom she meant) to remove Article 370. However, the man whose team ‘records it all’, was listening and her wish was fulfilled.

Bureaucrat turned politician Shah Faesal had offered PM Modi that he will watch PM Modi’s show with Bear Grylls if he ‘spares’ Article 370 and 35A.

Shah Faesal hasn’t yet updated whether he will still watch the show or not.

He had even threatened that the day Article 370 and Article 35A are scrapped, ‘we will move our watches 15 minutes away from Indian Standard Time’, instigating that the state of Kashmir will demand separate region and ‘independence’.

Well, that didn’t quite age well. Speaking of ageing well, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah had also echoed similar threats. That if Article 370 goes, Jammu and Kashmir will cease to be part of Indian State.

Except, with today’s proposal of revoking Article 370, Kashmir, which had riders attached to it, is now part of India without any conditions.

India is finally one.
