Welcoming the recent Supreme Court judgment upholding the applicability of the Sarfaesi Act in Jammu Kashmir, the Panun Kashmir, an organisation of Pandits, today demanded scrapping of Article 370, tribuneindia reported.

“It is an appropriate time to repeal Article 370 to completely integrate J&K into India politically, constitutionally and economically. It will also stop the state, especially the Valley, from turning into a sanctuary and hub of Islamic jihadi terror groups,” said Ajay Chrangoo, chairman, Panun Kashmir.

“The Supreme Court judgment has reiterated the most fundamental and cardinal fact that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and that the provisions of Article 370 embodied in the Constitution of India do not in any respect recognise it as a separate entity,” said Chrangoo.

He said, “The order makes it clear that the constitution of J&K is subordinate to the constitution of India and it is the only one expression of the authority of the Indian state.”
