REVOCATION OF ARTICLE 370 BY INDIAN GOVERNMENT THEREBY UNDERMINING THE AUTONOMY OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR
EDM #2685
Tabled 03 September 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House deplores the actions by Indian Prime Minister Modi and his BJP Government to revoke article 370 which guaranteed Jammu and Kashmir special status within the Indian Union; records that this article dates back to 1949 and was promised to the then Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir when he led his majority Muslim state into the Indian Union; notes that the revoking of article 370 was a unilateral decision by the BJP Government which undermines the traditional position of the United Kingdom Government which is that the future of Jammu and Kashmir was a matter to be resolved by bilateral decisions between India and Pakistan; and believes that no UK government should, therefore, support any future application by India to become a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council until it has facilitated a final settlement of this disputed region in accordance with the wishes of the people of Jammu and Kashmir on both sides of the line of control.
