PDP leader and former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti raised controversy by her threat she issued on Monday to the NDA-led Centre warning it against “fiddling with Article 35A” that grants special rights and privileges enjoyed by Jammu and Kashmir. In a shocking warning, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief claimed that the Kashmiris could “dump” the tricolour if Article 35A was “attacked.”

“Don’t play with fire; don’t fiddle with Article 35A, else you will see what you haven’t seen since 1947, if it’s attacked then I don’t know which flag people of J&K will be forced to pick up instead of the tricolour,” former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said, according to ANI.

Earlier as well, Mufti had issued a warning about the aftermath, should the court not rule in favour of the controversial article, claiming that “no one should blame Kashmiris for the developments that will follow such a hare-brained decision”. She had stated, ”Article 370 is the constitutional connection between Jammu and Kashmir and the Indian Union. The instrument of accession is contingent on Article 370, which is inextricably linked to Article 35A. Any tampering will render the Treaty of Accession null and void.”

National Conference leader and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah urged the Centre and the governor to hold elections in the state, which has been under President’s rule since December. “So, hold elections, let people take the decision, the new government will itself work towards safeguarding Article 35A,” ANI quoted him as saying.

Abdullah said the situation in the state would become worse than Arunachal Pradesh if rights under Article 35A and Article 370 of the Constitution are tampered. Article 370 grants special, autonomous status to the state.

“They threaten us every day with [Article] 35A,” Abdullah told party functionaries in Srinagar on Monday, according to PTI. “I want to tell the Centre that see the situation in Arunachal Pradesh, where there is no militancy, no stone-pelting. A peaceful state like Arunachal Pradesh is also up in flames. The people there have hit the roads in order to save their permanent resident status.”

Abdullah said the violent protests in Arunachal Pradesh against granting permanent resident certificates to six minority communities should act as an “eye-opener to those who are inimical to Article 370, Article 35A”. “Any misadventure in fiddling with the state’s special status will unarguably have serious and far-reaching consequences in Jammu and Kashmir.”

Abdullah said his remarks were not a threat, but it was his duty to warn Delhi about the consequences of tampering with Kashmir’s special status.
