The grandson of the leader of India’s independence movement against British rule Mahatma Gandhi, has urged the world to speak out against the India’s abrupt, illegal and unconstitutional action and support the people of Kashmir.
According to details, Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Raj Mohan Gandhi expressed solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiris and said that the Indian move to abolish the special status of the occupied Kashmir is illegal and unconstitutional.
He said that the situation in occupied Kashmir has raised questions on Indian democracy. No Kashmiris can support the scrapping of Article 370.
Raj Mohan Gandhi further said that the Indian army has besieged the entire valley.
On August 5, the Modi government abolished Article 370A of the Indian Constitution, which gave special status to Kashmir.
After the abolition of Article 370A, the curfew continued in the occupied valley for the 40th consecutive day while all medium of communication including mobile phones, internet services and TV broadcasts were also suspended.
Earlier, Supreme Court of India issued a notice to the federal government on all petitions challenging the revocation of Article 370.
Indian Supreme Court said while hearing pleas against the repeal of special status in J&K today that Petitions related to the abrogation of Article 370 will be heard by a five-judge Constitution Bench in October.
Indian top court also issued notices to the Centre and Jammu and Kashmir administration on the pleas.
The bench said, “We know what to do, we have passed the order, we are not going to change.”
The petition against the scrapping of Article 370 has been filed by advocate ML Sharma, National Conference MPs Mohd Akbar Lone and Justice (rtd) Hasnain Masoodi have challenged the changes made in the constitutional status of Jammu and Kashmir by the Centre.
