new Delhi: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP Afzal Ansari has welcomed the decision to remove Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. Afzal Ansari has said that the abolition of Article 370 is a true tribute to the martyrdom of my maternal grandfather, Birgader Usman and his comrades, who sacrificed their lives to save Kashmir.
Afzal Ansari said that in 1947, when the king of Jammu and Kashmir sought help from India to escape the attack of the tribesmen and Pakistan, India decided to send the army, then the first under the leadership of Brigadier Usman of the 50th Parachute Birgade. In Kashmir, the army took up the front and sourced the teeth of Pakistan. On 3 July 1948, while fighting this battle and saving Kashmir, Brigadier Usman martyred. Therefore, the withdrawal of Article 370 is a big tribute to him.
Afzal Ansari is a BSP MP from Ghazipur. He said that the government's way of removing this section is wrong but removing Article 370 is right. The government should also remove such streams from other states.
