Article 370 Removal: Right or Wrong? | Explained by Dhruv Rathee


Hello friends (This is) a huge and historic decision The special status of Jammu and Kashmir under article 370 has been revoked by a presidential order What does this mean? What impact does this have? Is this a good thing or a bad thing? You must have noticed that people are either fully supporting it or are completely against it In this video, I will tell you (about) both the sides with a balanced approach The people that are supporting it, why are they doing so? And the people that are against it, why are they doing so? So that you are able to formulate your own opinion on this after hearing out both the sides In the end, I shall also tell you my opinion on this Come, lets see It has a long history, but summing up in short, When it was formulated, Article 370 was a medium of keeping Kashmir connected to India This article grants a special status to Kashmir, due to which, Kashmir was able to maintain a constitution of its own, separate from the Indian constitution It could have a flag of its own, separate from the Indian flag The powers of the Indian central government would initially be applicable only in three areas: External affairs, defense and communications Besides this article 370, there was another article 35A which defined the permanent residents of Kashmir No outsider was permitted to buy land or property in Kashmir or avail educational scholarships or apply for government jobs The decision that has been taken right now hasn’t technically removed article 370 In contrast, it has made use of the article 370 itself to declare it null and void There is a clause in this article that reads that “this article can cease to exist” That is, this article can be declared null and void through a presidential order in consultation with constituent assembly of Jammu and Kashmir So the President and the State government of Jammu and Kashmir can take this decision jointly But the situation at present is that no state government exists there No state assembly exists either because Jammu and Kashmir has been brought under President’s rule So the powers of the State government got transferred to the Parliament of India So the Parliament of India, together, can take a decision after the Presidential order to declare article 370 null and void, and this is precisely what happened So, after the removal of article 370, article 35 disintegrates so, the clauses under article 35 also disintegrate This decision means that there’d be no separate constitution of Jammu and Kashmir There’d be no separate flag The rest of the Indians can buy land and property and avail educational scholarships there And can apply for government jobs I’m saying “technically” because it is yet not clear whether things like buying lands would be allowed or not Because there are a lot of states in our country, like, Himachal Pradesh and the north eastern states where the rest of the Indians are not allowed to buy land There are a lot of other reasons for this. For instance, environmental reasons But the biggest question here is whether doing this was constitutional? Was doing this right or wrong? Would doing this lead to improved conditions in Kashmir or would it make things worse? Firstly, I’d like you to hear the arguments of the people who support this decision The people who support this decision maintain that conditions in Kashmir would improve This is a win-win situation for Kashmiris and Indians This is because the Indians can now buy land in Kashmir and invest there due to which the land prices in Kashmir would rise The local Kashmiris would get more money when they would lease out their lands or sell lands to others The companies would now come and invest in Kashmir There would be enhanced education opportunities when the rest of the Indians would come and avail the educational scholarships in the universities here or apply for government jobs and buy lands here Doing all this would lead to overall economic development which would create more jobs and increased employment and development would lead to a reduction in crime and terrorism Because, automatically, if people there would join jobs, there would be a decrease in the victims of terrorism Another advantage for the Kashmiris is that they would now come under Indian laws and avail benefits of things like Right to education and Right to information The rest of the arguments state that the Kashmiri pandits, who had to flee, are extremely happy that they would now be able to return to Kashmir Lastly, there’s an argument that states that this would create a psychological impact A single flag and a single constitution would cause the Kashmiris to be feel further integrated within India Now, let us see what the people who argue against this, say The people that are against this decision have a very simple argument that the Kashmiris were not asked at all before doing this Hundreds of troops were called in, the internet was turned off, the landlines were turned off The Kashmiri politicians were placed under house arrest, the people were locked up inside their houses And the government took this decision without the apprising the Kashmiris about it People, therefore, say that this amounts to illegal occupation and this can be compared to Fascism That is, calling in the army and imposing this decision on them without asking them first Having dissolved the State assembly of Jammu and Kashmir and imposing President’s rule there Not conducting the re elections, Taking this step is no less than a dictatorship No body is paying heed to the people (of Jammu and Kashmir) No body is paying heed to the democratically elected politicians (of Jammu and Kashmir) Another argument is that doing this was unconstitutional and amounts to cheating Because we made use of a loophole: this decision was taken when the state assembly was non existent For example, Prasant Bhushan writes that this could not have been done and this was unconstitutional This amounts to cheating because the people were fooled that the 10,000 troops were being brought in because there was a threat of a terrorist attack However, there were no threats. This was done because a decision had to be taken behind their backs So the people were misled.They were kept in the dark. The counter argument to this is that had the people been informed, a lot of violence would have ensued Hence, bringing in the troops was necessary If it should have been done by previously informing the people and with discussions, this is what has been ongoing since the past 70 years This is the counter argument to that Some separatists argue that article 370 was the sole medium of connection between Kashmir and India It was the sole legal medium, you could say Revoking this would mean that there remains no legal basis upon which Kashmir stays within India Due to which there could be problems world over and in the United Nations and They say that Kashmir has now become an Indian military occupied state The last point which argues against this is the haste with which this bill was passed There was no discussion or debate in the Parliament Another important decision has been taken that Jammu and Kashmir will be made a separate union territory and Ladakh will be made a separate union territory This is a very significant because Jammu and Kashmir was a state that had been granted a special status Now, it has been reduced to a level even below a normal state The democracy of the union territories is even lesser than that of a normal state The central government has greater control over a union territory in comparison to a normal state The people arguing against this say that the democracy in Jammu and Kashmir would be further reduced now Because the people there would choose the government, but the elected state government would not be empowered to take decision in all the fields And if it is a different party than the one in the centre, then a lot of conflicts would arise as in the case of Delhi If they can do this with Jammu and Kashmir, they could do the same with any state in the future In my opinion, as far as removal of article 370 goes, I lean more towards the first category That is, I believe that removal of article 370 would lead to more development in Kashmir There would be more economic development and people would get more jobs But the way it was done is not correct in my opinion Its difficult to gauge its impact in the long term Because if the people of Kashmir do not accept it and the integration and decisions are taken without asking them first, then the long term impact would not be good. What we want would not be achieved. The purpose behind the removal of article 370 is to integrate Kashmir with India But Kashmir will not be integrated with India until the local Kashmiris want to be integrated If something like this is thrust upon them forcefully and decisions are taken without asking them first, then integration would become even more difficult I am completely against the manner in which it was done But I support its removal So if the decision to remove article 370 would have been taken by consulting the Kashmiri people or atleast in consultation with the Kashmiri politicians or the State Government, after conducting the elections, Then it would have been better The counter argument to this is that taking such a decision would not have been possible I am not in favor of the decision to make Jammu and Kashmir a union territory Because it is clear that this diminishes democracy The government that the people choose is not able to exercise decision making in all the aspects And there are conflicts between the State government and the Central government This hampers development The development gets stalled Work cannot progress in the right manner So this was my opinion on this issue But here, I’d like to ask you what do you think? Was this decision right or wrong? You can write down in the comments below It is very difficult to predict what the impact on Kashmir would be Would Kashmir transform into a peaceful state where there would be more development? Would it become more integrated with India or would it become more distant? Would this decision turn out to be like the one on demonetisation? where the intentions were correct but the implementation was ghastly Only time can tell I’d only like to say that it would be extremely essential to win over the hearts of the Kashmiris in the coming times It will be very important to make them feel included within India For Kashmir to become like any other state, Kashmir will have to become a normal state in every aspect As of now, a large number of troops are present there No body likes to live in such a militarized area The area needs to be demilitarized The presence of the army needs to be reduced gradually so that Kashmir becomes like a normal state and so that economic development takes place I hope you would have liked this video Share this video If you like my work then you can support me in Patreon.com/DhruvRathee which will enable me to make such informative and knowledgeable videos for you in the future We will meet in the next video.

    Iss liye mere comments delete Kar Raha Hai.

  5. I'm going to reiterate what you said- Intentions were really good! Implementation was a clusterfuck! What remains to be seen is how the Centre and the other States bring in massive development and investments. I also feel that only public and private corporations should be allowed to buy land there. Kashmir and it's culture must be protected from the right wing extremists who put all Indians to shame… Happy for Ladakhis on finally getting their own and our country's first Buddhist majority territory!
    -with love from MH-12 🙂

  6. FIRST TIME…FIRST TIME…We see an example of clear and neutral analysis from your side, Dhruv.. Continue with this..
    I am not asking to support every move of MODI govt., but you analyse those on the merits and demerits, and not on pre-conceived prejudice..
    Who knows, you might find most of the moves as meritorious, by this way..

  7. तुम्हारे जैसा चाटुकार आदमी दोनो तर्क कैसे दे सकता है।

  8. As per article 370 (3) dictates J&K assembly should be consulted. When BJP and PDP were in the power , they should have passed a resolution to clear the hurdle. Now without consulting stakeholders it is undemocratic and unconditional. People of other state are suspicious of BJP rss agenda. It can happen to any state. If view at overall pictures, there is trust deficit. It will lead country to disintegrate if you impose against people’s will. BJP has credibility. Election was stolen by EVMs manipulation. Illegitimate government has no right to change federal structures. First restore people’s confidence in election system by conducting paper ballots. Our economy
    Is out of order. No jobs . No developments. No plan to improve our people’s life instead adding more problem by unconstitutional move. Useless government.

  9. अरे काहे दिक्कत ले रहे हो राठी साहब । 370 गयी अभी बांग्लादेशी भी जाएंगे , मंदिर बनेगा , जनसख्या नियंत्रण कानून आएगा और हमे आपकी वीडियो का इंतज़ार रहेगा । सहधन्यवाद।,🙏

    Anupam kher to Nasiruddin- lekin tumhara tarika galat hai..
    Nasiruddin to anupam kher- aaj main tarike ki nhi natije ki parvaah kar raha hun

  12. It is not an informative video, your stance is totally anti national in the name of democracy. Why cant you explain about what they did to kashmiri panditis. Do you really think this is not correct way to scrap 370. Then what is the correct way ? To consult terrorist organisations and seperatists about this. Nationalism gaya bhad mein tereko tho funding milra na

  13. The time will tell….The only way to win Kashmir hearts is by making J&K a normal state.

    Making J&K a union territory, clearly reflects government's intentions.

  14. Grt job . But I want to recommend you that and give one example …when in school some naughty boys misbehave in class every class is given punishment as though ,the good student from next time denies bad students act and complains to teacher .same way is the matter of kashmirr , some disturbing elements who pelt stones on soldiers and go against law and order is the correct method to teach them . By this there will fear among themselves if we do against law and order we will be sent to jell . So it's a very appreciating step by indian govt .to curfew in j and k so as to restrict pelters or deshdrohi ones . It was part of india and it will be a part of india . Inshahallah sbb achha ho jayegaa. Jha tkk democracy or facilities ki baat hai Kashmir ekk abhi bhi special hai kyuki vha ki khubsurti khi nhi to Indian govt will do best , not as you say mr. Rathi . It's good that u support the removal but you should also be the durdarsi farsighted. Good luck .

  15. I agree with you dhruv bhai. 370 revoke was a good decision and the consultation was important. But it is also right that may be it would have created problem and the bill was not passed. Now, the time will say the effect is good or bad. I think it is a good step. But I'll pray that the step don't drain to waste as 'note bhandhi'

  16. abhi sota hu baki ki galiya tab dunga jab tujhe magsasey mil jayega. chutiyo ko wo award badi jaldi mil jata hai.

  17. apni ma bahan ko kasmir ke terrorist ke pass bhej de, indian army ki goli khane se pahle unka mujara dekh lenge. 😆😆😆😆😆😆😆

  18. अपने नागरिकों के साथ cheating करना और उनका नहीं सुनना कैसे सही हो सकता है?

  19. Muje to lga tum bhi Pakistani ke boli bologe 😂

  26. So the Non-Indian claimed Indian tell the people of India about your earnings from YouTube by fooling Indians in the name of patron and also another earning source as Anti-Modi parties. I know that writing thoughts and journals is different then knowing ground reality. Also don't quote living somewhere in Europe like movie type symbols and let people think that which part of the desert you live. Idiot!

  27. 🙏
    कश्मीर कोई देश नही है।जिसे छिना जा रहा है कश्मीर भारत का हिसा है कश्मीर भारत है
    कश्मीर का नाम ऐसे बोला जा रहा है कि जैसे किसी और देश को छीन हरे है।ये नियम एक बार अपनाके देखिये।
    नियम में रहने से हम संस्कारी बनते है माना कुछ दिक्कते है पर इतने आजाद देश में रहने के बाद भी एकपता नही आप को कैसी आजादी चाहिये ।
    जितनी आजादी भारत में है उतनी कहिं
    नही और बांकी देश के बारे मेतो आप जानते हो।✍️

  29. Just one comment for you, Sour Grapes, second its first time in Delhi this is happening so please, there are many UTs which are really doing well.

  30. I am not your fan, just Came here to read the comments. You didn't disappoint in the end with your illogical "opinion", and proved why majority of people abuse you.

    Jai Hind!!

  31. You've undermined the corporate land grab agenda behind the screen and strategy to digress from other pertinent issues related to the country and economy like, UAPA bill NMC bill etc.

  32. Bhai says "I don't support the way it was done!" thoda sa solution to ab hua hai, problem to kayi saalo se hai, to bhai aap itne bade gyaani hain badhiya sa koi aur sahi way hi batadete govt. ka ye kadam uthane se pehle..

    Next time se solutions ke sahi ways aap pehle pehle se hi batadiya karo thik hai na, taki sab kuch apko sahi lage hone ke baad. Yeh itne sare log bas aise hi buddhhu baithe hue hain jinhone ye plan kiya ye sab inko kuch pata hi nahi hai..

    Sahi ho bhai aap hi sahi ho..

  33. Please keep this guy shut ! Who made this guy to give his opinion like a scholar. What is your education level and contribution to india, world or in field ? From last 70 years governments were trying to talk to the j&k politicians but nothing happens. It would have been a problem for the years. Bear the pain for some time and remove cause of the problem is the best way.

  34. Hy bro…i think its good decesion for kashmiri people nd u also know very well.Yaah method used to apply this rule is wrong but i think only dis is the way by this it could happen…And we know from last 70 years special state and special power given to j &k but did u found any special posive benefit that received j & k citizens.I am not support any specifict party but dear i think decesion is not bad .i dont know what will impect but it will better than currnt situation.every person of kashmir should accpt dis decesion by positive way so result will be positive.

  35. 18K dislikes can tell you, how wrong you are when it comes to supporting the removal of 370! When it comes to the development, Kashmir is far better than some of many states in India so please don't encourage people to support this fascist move.

  36. Army Kam kardiya Gaya jammu mei toh Pakistani hamla karke khabza karlenge saley , aur zyada army hogi toh families Ko rag karenge army people

  37. You're not so good thinker of India. Tell about the goodness that will happen. Government should give equal right. Their hearts should not get hurt. We should also think "Kya article 370 banana tob bohut joruri tha?"

  38. When i started watching video n saw those 18k unlikes.. i gotta know there is smthg different in druve's video… antiparallel to the indian overall Psychic norm…. tbh u r the first one ( for me ) an Indian with whom I'm agreed… the fact is… u can't develop peace unless u ask those for whom u r doing it… it is impossible without concern of kashmiri PEOPLE… u can't even be able to talk about PEACE n prosperity in the state … u will never be …u can't enforce things on others.. atleast not in this era… whole kashmir is converted into a Live Cell… without internet n mobile services…even families r unable to communicate with each other ..many kashmir students here in Pakistan have no contact with their familes back in Kashmir… N the SADDEST thing …what i read in indian comments in different posts n videos, they r cheering n appreciating each other n making fun , but it's not funny when lives of many r at risk.. u can talk about Removal of article n other ..but the giving the reason of "Development.." …is just a JOKE.. how can u hope for development n peace by going against the Will of Kashmiris.. Peace in Valley can only prevail when decisions will be taken according to the will of People of kashmir… some ignorants still believe 9 lac army ( ur own people will not agree to this estimation …cz they think.. 7 lac+ 1 lac 80k more in last week ..army in kashmir is a Rumour …n THERE is no problem in kashmir…) is for Prevention from That bla bla ..Masood n whatever u media claims ppl……. for God Sake ..indian ppl should open up their eyes.. don't be a blind follower…… plz wake up..u should also call to mind the recent UN sayings on KASHMIR…. n the point.. Y Pakistan is concerned about what indian does in Kashmir is….Kashmir issue is still a dispute b/w two countries..as By ur Own indian Govt. It was accepted when india took that case in UN ..n claimed for the solution ..india claimed kashmir as an disputed area n Alleged area.so now this can't be solved this way…. KASHMIRI ISSUE WILL AlWAYS REMAIN AN ISSUE UNLESS BOTH COUNTRIES SET A MiDWAY TRACK……. 15th August will be ur independence day ..U'LL surely celebrate it as each country celebrates.. like Pakistan celebrates but plz once remind those Kashmiris as well … a genuine opinion by Azad Kashmiri, Pakistani …Stay Safe n enjoy ur freedom..

  39. Decision is absolutely correct and also implemented in a perfect peaceful way.
    U have a lot of followers, u should have a sense of social responsibility which u lack.

  40. Jo bhi 370 hatae Jane par Ka virod Kar Raha he use yad rakna bhartvasio vo sare deshdrohi he ….jise Rastra se bilkul bhi pyaar Nahi he …or peso ke liye vo Kuch bhi Kar sakte he ….
