The Constitution Bench of the Indian Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud, in violation of the universally-acknowledged disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir and the commitment of plebiscite to the Kashmiris by India’s own first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, has upheld the New Delhi government’s illegal step of the abrogation of Article 370 of August 5, 2019.
The illegal act was challenged in the Indian Supreme Court by local politicians, who are considered to be pro-Indians.
In its verdict, the court said that Article 370 of the Constitution was a temporary provision and the President has the power to revoke it.
Meanwhile, legal experts while expressing surprise over the Indian Supreme Court’s verdict, termed it a travesty of justice.
They said the verdict indicates a collusion between India’s top judiciary and the fascist RSS-BJP regime intending to finish Kashmir’s distinct identity and its Muslim character.
The experts said that for Kashmiris, accepting 5th Aug 2019 decisions is tantamount to losing their hounour and identity. They deplored that Indian judiciary has become highly saffronized since fascist Modi assumed power in 2014.
