Enact a Patriots Act and charge Vir Singhvi types for treason – Dr. Swamy

published on August 22, 2008

Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, President of Janata Party, made in New Delhi in response to Vir Singhvi’s article at:


New Delhi: The call for “Azadi’ (freedom from India) for Kashmiri Muslims, given by some Islamic organizations based in Kashmir Valley, is ridiculous. Under Article 1 of the Indian Constitution, no part of India can have ‘Azadi’ under any circumstance. The only ‘Azadi’ we Indians can offer Kashmir Muslim secessionists is a free one-way passage to Pakistan so that they do not have to live in India Under the India Independence Act (1947) passed by the British Parliament for partitioning of India, Muslims were given only two alternative to choose from: either remain being Indian citizens or to go to Pakistan. There was no third alternative of “Azadi’.


The demand for referendum in Kashmir by some people such as Vir Singhvi is treason. A future Government needs to pass a US-type Patriots Act which should provide for prosecution of such persons who want to dismember India. On conviction, Capital punishment should be awarded to such traitors.


The Janata Party J&K President Mr.Som Nath Dabgotra who is also member of SASS has been asked to press for this demand in the current agitation in Jammu.
