Event calling abrogation of Article 370 ‘assault on Democracy and Constitutionalism’ to be held in JNU, The Wire editor joins communists as speaker

The event will be attended by Far-Left activists and Communists of questionable reputation. Founding editor of The Wire, Siddharth Varadarajan, is one of the luminaries who will attend the event.

The students at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and professors have decided to organize a talk on the abrogation of Article 370 at Sabarmati Lawns. The theme of the event is “BJP’s Assault on Democracy and Constitutionalism in India”. The event is slated to occur at 3 PM on the 30th of October.

The event against abrogation of Article 370 in JNU will be attended by Far-Left activists and Communists of questionable reputation. Founding editor of The Wire, Siddharth Varadarajan, is one of the ‘luminaries’ who will attend the event. The Wire has a reputation for peddling fake news on contentious issues and in the Jay Shah defamation case, the Supreme Court itself and labelled its reportage on Amit Shah’s son as ‘yellow journalism’. The Wire’s reportage on the abrogation of Article 370 as well is littered with fake news and propaganda.

Prashant Bhushan, a compulsive far-left PIL activist, will also attend the event at JNU. His antics during the Rafale saga, where he played a major role, is well documented. He, along with others, made several fallacious arguments in the Court during the entire manufactured controversy. In the past, Prashant Bhushan has also filed a PIL in Courts to prevent the deportation of Rohingyas, a petition that was dismissed by the Supreme Court.

Apart from them, ex-general secretary of the CPIM Prakash Karat and far-left activist Kavita Krishnan will also be part of the event. CPI leader Annie Raja, wife of D. Raja, will be there as well. Judging from the list of ‘luminaries’ who will attend the event, it can be very well guessed what the ‘talk’ will entail. It can be safely said that the attendees will advocate in favour of the sustenance of an Islamic state within the Secular State of India.

Interestingly, the event name claims that the abrogation of Article 370 is against the Indian Constitution and democracy. The abrogation of Article 370 being against the Constitution is a trope often used by the Left, however, Article 370 itself had the status of being a temporary provision enshrined in the constitution. It being against ‘democracy’ is another trope by the Left. The BJP has promised the abrogation of Article 370 in its manifesto for years. In 2014 and 2019, the BJP got a thumping majority based on the promises made and abrogation of Article 370 was one of them. Hence, the basic premise that the abrogation of Article 370 is against Constitutionalism or Democracy makes no sense by the Left.

It is also interesting to see self-proclaimed “neutral” voices like Siddharth Varadarajan join hands with far-Left politicians like Yechury and Kavita Krishnan. While The Wire is often referred to as a Leftist propaganda website, its editors have always called themselves neutral. While the content of their website betrays that proclamation, this event is just another reminder that the Left-leaning media hand in gloves with far-left activists and politicians.

The news of the event comes a day after students at the University blocked an ambulance that sought to carry a sick professor to the hospital. The professor developed high blood pressure after witnessing the protests by students but the insensitive students did not allow him to be transported to an appropriate hospital, thus risking his life.
