Digvijaya Remark Was Not An Idiot’s Ramblings But Part Of A New Counter – Narrative
EVEN though the statement by senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh about restoration of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir may appear to be a matter of his habit of of an idiot or just for kicking up controversies, it seems otherwise,
Ipoliticalt is suspected to be a part of a larger nefarious design to start a fresh political activity in the Union Territory and push it to a boiling point when the country celebrates completion of two years after abrogation of the Special Status, on August 5, 2021.
As part of this anti National plan, an alternate fake narrative, too, is being presented to some of the gullible people of the country to discount the fact of the genocide and forced exodus of the members of the Pandit community of Kashmir.As per this Congress backed plan ( probably formulated by ISI) it was the Muslim community that suffered in the violence that turned Kashmir into hell thirty-plus years ago, the new narrative tries to assert. Another part of this fake anti National -narrative is that the erstwhile Hindu ruler of Kashmir had given caste-based reservations to the Hindu community. …….and the poor Congress party and its Government had to continue with it without alternative…….ha ha ha.
Government agencies have more or less confirmed that this activity is being masterminded by elements in Pakistan, interested in promoting separatism in Jammu and Kashmir and somehow having Article 370 restored — so that the State becomes a victim of terrorism once again.
Ministry of Home Affairs is of the opinion that the statement by Digvijaya Singh was not an idiotic gambling or coincidence, but a part of an organised effort to bring to fore once again the ideological position that Article 370 is absolutely essential to Kashmir and that the current Government of India removed it illegally by applying extra-constitutional methods. These allegations also match the assertions by the signatories of the Gupkar Resolution that vowed to restore Special Status to Jammu and Kashmir.
One disturbing dimension of the fake -narrative is that many pro-370 politicians have started insisting again and again that Pakistan, too, has a stake in Kashmir. When the Lok Sabha was discussing the issue of abrogation of Special Status, Leader of Congress Parliamentary Party Adheer Ranjan Chowdhary had butted into the speech by Home Minister Amit Shah to insert the Pakistani stake into the issue. How could the Parliament take such a step in Kashmir which is a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan, he was reported to have wondered. It may be recalled that this statement had invited much flak in the Lok Sabha…….now it is upto the people of India to vanish such elements permanentky from the Country ‘s policy.
A recent political development in Kashmir is the decision of National Conference (NC) of Farooq Abdullah to join the process of delimitation of constituencies, announced recently by the Government. Initially, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) headed by former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had opposed the idea of participating in the delimitation process. However, reports are doing the rounds that Farooq Abdullah has convinced Mehbooba Mufti that the Gupkar partners must not stay away from the political process.
“We can dominate the process only if we are involved,” Farooq Abdullah is reported to have said to his partner-signatories of Gupkar Resolution. Another twist to the situation is that Farooq Abdulaah has decided not to quit his position as Member of Parliament (which he once contemplated doing) and continue to take advantage of his presence in the parliamentary process. Sources in some Government agencies remind that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had tweeted sometime ago a map of India in which Occupied Kashmir had been shown a part of Pakistan.
All these sly steps have the capacity to act as a viagra for the Pakistan Government and especially its Deep State. Though it will make not much of a difference to India but help Pakistan in fooling its own population and those Kashmiri who are separatists for a bit longer. Time is nearing when this problem will be resolved once for all.
