Maharajah of Jammu and Kashmir did us a great service by defining the State Subject laws. Many in forcibly divided State of Jammu and Kashmir don’t like Hari Singh, mainly because of his religion, ethnic background and region, but want protections under the laws enacted by him.

This fact confirms validity and significance of this law..... I think issue is not this ‘discrimination’. Many in India, especially belonging to BJP feel this law is the main obstacle in Jammu and Kashmir becoming a ‘normal’ state within the Indian union. The policy makers of New Delhi want to strike at this article with intention of ending a separate identity for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

They want to end this special status of Jammu and Kashmir enshrined in their constitution.
