Apex Court to hear petition to repeal J&K Article 35A; separatists in favour of law

The Supreme Court on Monday will hear the petition challenging the constitutional validity of Article 35A, which grants special rights and privileges for the residents of Jammu and Kashmir. The petition had been filed by a Delhi based NGO “We the Citizens”.

The petition hearing comes at a time when separatist leaders like from Hurriyat have warned that situation in the state could further worsen if the article provisions is tampered with.

The Article 35A was added to the Constitution by a Presidential Order in 1954.

It empowers the state’s legislature to frame laws without attracting a challenge on grounds of violating the Right to Equality of people from other states or any other right under the Constitution.

Meanwhile, the Kashmiri separatist leaders have warned of widespread protests if the Supreme Court rules in favour of the petitioners. They say the move to tinker with Article 35(A) is a conspiracy against Jammu and Kashmir.

Issuing a joint statement in Srinagar on Sunday, Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik urged the people to “launch a mass agitation if the Supreme Court delivered a verdict against the interests and aspirations of the people of the state”.

“Any move to tinker with a state subject law will create a Palestine-like situation,” the separatist Hurriyat leaders warned. They asked the people to prepare for protests against any change in the law that bars people from outside Jammu and Kashmir from acquiring immoveable property in the state.
