Top Muslim organisation Jamiat Ulama I Hind has passed a resolution to support PM Narendra Modi’s endeavour to abrogate the Articles 370 and 35A
New Delhi: In what comes as a massive support to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his efforts to integrate Jammu and Kashmir with India by abrogating Articles 370 and 35A, Jamiat Ulama I Hind, a top Muslim organisation has expressed its support for the move and passed a resolution in this regard.
The Modi government had passed a resolution to abrogate the Articles with the help of a presidential order on August 5, with both the houses of the Indian Parliament voting in favour of the resolution.
As the abrogation took place, there were allegations expressed that the Modi government had done it in a hurry, not consulting the stakeholders and moreover, with no state assembly present.
Now, more than a month since the abrogation, Kashmir is limping back to normalcy, with communication lines being restored and investment meets being held to generate more jobs in the region.
The Jammu and Kashmir state was split into two union territories, the other part being Ladakh.
Both the Articles had granted special rights to the citizens of the then state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Well, it is no surprise that the Modi government wanted to abrogate these Articles. In fact, the BJP had declared in its manifesto that it would do the needful to rescind the Articles if voted to power.
Modi, who is seen as an anti-Muslim figure, would find a lot of support and confidence in the top Muslim organisation passing a resolution to support the government’s move.
Senior BJP leaders like Subramanian Swamy have welcomed the move by the Muslim body to support Modi.
On the other hand, Pakistan had approached the UNSC, complaining about India’s move, but many countries had supported India on its move.
But India has always maintained that abrogation is an internal matter of the country.
