Outspoken IAS officer Shah Faesal today said repealing of Article 35A of the Constitution would end Jammu and Kashmir’s relationship with the rest of the country.
Faesal, a 2010-batch IAS exam topper, is currently pursuing a mid-career masters programme in the US.
I would compare Article 35A to a marriage-deed/nikahnama. You repeal it and the relationship is over. Nothing will remain to be discussed afterwards,” he said in a tweet.
He said the accession of Jammu and Kashmir to India took place before the Constitution had come into force.
“Yes and those who say Accession still stands forget that Accession was just like a Roka, because the Constitution had not come into force that time.
