Pakistani girl, Mehnaz messaged me, but didn’t turn up from last one year: Nayeema Mehjoor

Published

Srinagar, Jun 12 (KNS): Days after the Pakistani born lady, Mehnaz Sidique alleged ‘harassment’ by her Kashmiri husband, Chairperson of the State Commission for Women Nayeema Mehjoor on Tuesday said that the commission called Mehnaz several times but she didn’t turn up.
“I am receiving many messages, calls and even was tagged in Facebook posts relating to a Pakistani born Mehnaz Sidiqui who has marital dispute with Abdullah Danish,” Mehjoor said.
“Last year, Mehnaz sent me WhatsApp message regarding her problem and same day I informed her husband to appear before the commission so that I can hear both and take action,” Mehjoor informed Kashmir News Service (KNS).
“However, Mehnaz didn’t turn up, when called by my office why she didn’t come, she said she was not feeling well. We set another date for hearing and both were called to come. Again, she didn’t come and when called she said, please keep the case pending until I come back to you again,” SWC chairperson added.
“She was called by my office once again but couldn’t get through. Commission cannot take any action until a complainant wants to pursue her case. After few months, some shopkeeper called me and said some lady in the shop is distressed. I told him to put me through to this lady and I will find way to help her. When I spoke to lady, it was Mehnaz and I asked her why didn’t u come to me? She seemed in distress and I asked her to meet me as soon as possible. But she didn’t come,” chairperson informed.
Asked whether commission will take any suo-moto notice, she said that “the Commission cannot impose itself on any person if she doesn’t want our intervention or interference. We intervene or take suo moto notice where victim has no other means to contact us or is minor or old or hush up matter by office or agencies etc.”
“I spoke to Mehnaz yesterday. I told her to come to commission and I will bring your husband as well but she refused by saying that ‘I don’t want to come face to face with him’. Commission has a rule of bringing compliant and respondent together to hear both sides and if needed witnesses as well in order to find solution to problem,” she said.
Mehjoor said that she has filed case in court for domestic violence and maintenance. She will certainly get relief from court on the merits of the case. “I spoke to Danish Sherwani about the maintenance of kids, he said the ‘decision about it is expected on 10th July and domestic violence hearing is also due in the court’,” the chairperson said.
Regarding her visa or stay in Kashmir, Mehjoor said “it is not my jurisdiction neither state government can do it. She has to apply to central government for this.”
“Having said that, if she still feels I can help personally or commission can help, she needs to inform us and we make sure to help her by all means. But, we have to listen to other side as well, she added.

Why BJP pulled the plug in Jammu and Kashmir

Published

on

1. Both PDP and BJP were looking for an exit to shore up credentials among respective constituencies. BJP moved pre-emptively to seize political high ground.
2. Gulf between the partners had widened. Disagreements rose over security strategy after Burhan Wani’s killing. PDP wanted a softer approach towards stone-pelters + and militants, mindful of massive resentment in Valley.

PDP loses partner, and its support base
3. Mehbooba Mufti’s moves mollifying her supporters in the Valley by raising the ante on Kathua gang rape and Army/security forces’ operations further annoyed BJP’s constituency.
4. BJP went along with PDP’s demand for a ceasefire during Ramzan + . This was not reciprocated by Pakistan-backed terror groups or separatists, and dented BJP’s image nationally.

Governor’s rule imposed in J&K

Published

on

Jammu and Kashmir was today placed under Governor’s rule for the fourth time in the last one decade after the BJP withdrew support to its alliance partner PDP, prompting Mehbooba Mufti to resign as the chief minister.

A Home Ministry spokesman said “the President has approved imposition of Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir with immediate effect.”

The political developments of Jammu and Kashmir continued to dominate the night as President Ram Nath Kovind was in mid air when governor N N Vohra sent his report to the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The details of the Governor’s report were immediately sent to Suriname where the president was scheduled to land at 6.30 PM (3 AM IST) on his maiden visit.

“After concluding his consultations with all the major political parties, the Governor has forwarded his report to the President for imposition of Governor’s rule under Section 92 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir,” a Raj Bhavan spokesperson said last night in Srinagar.

The president after pursuing the report gave his assent and the same was sent to the Union Home Ministry by 6 AM IST following which a process of promulgating Governor’s rule was prepared and sent to Srinagar.

This is the eighth time

in last four decades that the state has been put under Governor’s rule and fourth during the tenure of Vohra since 2008.

The BJP stunned Mehbooba Mufti last afternoon after they pulled out of the over three-year-old ruling coalition with the PDP in the state and called for Governor’s rule.

BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav made this announcement that the party was withdrawing support to the coalition government which had been wracked by bitter political feuds and worsening security challenges.

“It has become untenable for the BJP to continue in the alliance government in Jammu and Kashmir,” Madhav had said yesterday.

Governor’s rule was imposed in the state for the first time during the tenure of Vohra for 174 days after the PDP withdrew support to Ghulam Nabi Azad-led Congress-PDP coalition government in 2008.

The PDP withdrew support to the government on June 28, 2008 following widespread protests during the Amarnath land row agitation that pitted Hindu-dominated Jammu region against the Muslim-majority Kashmir valley.

The central rule came to an end on January 5, 2009 after National Conference leader Omar Abdullah was sworn in as the youngest chief minister of the state.

Governor’s rule was imposed in the state for the second time during his tenure after the assembly election results on December 23, 2014 threw up a hung assembly with no party or combination of parties able to stake claim for government formation and Omar Abdullah, the caretaker chief minister, asking to be relieved from the duties with immediate effect on January 7.

The central rule ended after the PDP and the BJP stitched an alliance paving the way for the return of Mufti Sayeed as chief minister on March 1, 2015.

Last time the state was put under the central rule on January 8, 2016 after allies– the PDP and the BJP– deferred the government formation process following the death of Mufti Sayeed. It came to an end after Mehbooba Mufti was sworn in as the chief minister on April 4, 2016.

Centre may appoint new J&K governor after Amarnath yatra

Published

on

Jammu : Former deputy chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Kavinder Gupta on Wednesday said the Centre may appoint a new Governor in the state after the Amarnath yatra.
Speaking to ANI, Gupta said, “It’s a routine matter (appointing new Governor). The Central Government will see to it. The decision on this might be taken after Amarnath Yatra.”
The yatra, which starts on June 28, will continue for two months.
Currently, N N Vohra, who was appointed as a governor in the state in June 2008 and was given a fresh term in 2013, is among the few governors appointed by the UPA government to have continued in his position in the BJP-led NDA dispensation.
Gupta further stated that no new government will be formed anytime soon in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is working on something in connection with the ongoing issue in Jammu and Kashmir, the former deputy chief minister added.
“I don’t think a new government will be formed anytime soon. Uncertainties are there, but we are working on something and people will get to know about it,” he said.
Earlier in the day, President Ram Nath Kovind approved the imposition of Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir, with an immediate effect.
Yesterday, Governor Narinder Nath Vohra forwarded his report to the President of India for the imposition of Governor’s Rule under Section 92 of the Constitution.
This came after Mehbooba Mufti resigned as Jammu and Kashmir’s Chief Minister following the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) exit from its alliance with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
Mufti said that the basic motive of the alliance was “reconciliation, dialogue with the people of Kashmir, promoting confidence-building measures and good relationships with Pakistan.”
The BJP’s decision apparently came after its chief Amit Shah held a meeting with the party’s Jammu and Kashmir cabinet ministers.
Citing examples of the growing acts of “terrorism, violence and radicalisation” in the state over the past few years, BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav, while addressing a press conference in the national capital, said that the party was left with no other option, but to discontinue its alliance with the PDP.
The BJP and PDP formed a coalition government in 2015 after the state elections threw up a hung assembly. However, both of them were ideologically divided on a variety of issues.
The BJP had 25 seats in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly, while the PDP had 28.
This will be the fourth time in the last 10 years that a Governor’s rule is imposed in Jammu and Kashmir. (ANI)
