India’s ruling Hindu party comes to power in Kashmir coalition.

Narendra Modi’s BJP sworn into government for first time in India’s restive Muslim-majority state.

NEW PDP-BJP MINISTRY IN J&KAgence France-Presse in Jammu | Via The Gurdian, UK | 1 March 2015:: India’s ruling Hindu nationalist party was Sunday sworn into government for the first time in the country’s only Muslim-majority state after a power-sharing deal with a regional rival.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) and the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) have forged a coalition government after inconclusive elections two months ago for the restive Himalayan region’s state assembly.

Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, the Muslim head of the PDP, was sworn in as chief minister of the region, where a sporadic revolt against Indian rule has been waged since 1989. In a symbolic gesture he enthusiastically embraced Modi, who was on stage to witness the historic ceremony.

[This is the second time Mufti will be heading a coalition government. In 2002, he led a PDP-Congress alliance and was chief minister for three years.

Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Nirmal Singh was on Sunday sworn in as the deputy chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir.

“This is a great day. No one in their wildest dreams ever thought of this,” PDP leader Naeem Akhtar said after the ceremony in the region’s winter capital of Jammu.

“But I think Mufti Sayeed and the national (BJP) leadership of Modi-ji, they are on a journey to turn around Kashmir,” an upbeat Akhtar told the NDTV network, using a Hindi honorific for respect.

The inauguration, held amid tight security at the University of Jammu, came after weeks of intense negotiations between the two parties which disagree on several critical issues in the region.

Sayeed has described the alliance as the “coming together of the North Pole and the South Pole” while the BJP has hailed the move as a “miracle of democracy”.

The negotiations followed December elections that saw the BJP capture 25 seats mainly in the Hindu-dominated Jammu region, while the PDP took 28, mostly in the Kashmir valley where Muslim separatist sentiment has traditionally been strongest.

But both failed to secure a majority to the 87-seat assembly, forcing the negotiations.

Both parties benefited at the polls from widespread discontent at the state’s then-ruling National Conference party, over its handling of floods that killed more than 200 people in Kashmir in September.

The polls were marred by a number of deadly attacks in the region, which is divided between India and Pakistan and claimed by both.

Rebel groups have been fighting Indian forces since 1989 for independence or a merger of the territory with Muslim-majority Pakistan. The fighting has left tens of thousands dead, mostly civilians.

Swarms of police patrolled the university grounds before the ceremony, which was also attended by BJP president Amit Shah.

“We have taken all necessary measures along the border (with Pakistan) and in the city to maintain law and order,” police inspector general for the Jammu region, Rajesh Kumar said.

Modi and Sayeed last week finally agreed on a common agenda to jointly rule the state and details were expected to be unveiled at a press conference later on Sunday.

But the agenda is unlikely to include any reference to scrapping a constitutional provision which allows Kashmir to make its own laws, even though the BJP has long been committed to its abolition.

The BJP has also traditionally balked at demands by the PDP to scrap a draconian law that gives Indian forces sweeping search and shoot-on-sight powers in Kashmir, which is seen by critics as a cover for rights abuses.

Analysts warned that the coming together of two ideologically different parties could fuel discontent among Hindus in Jammu as well as Muslims in the Kashmir valley.

“A big challenge will be to shore up credibility among voters in both regions of the state,” said Siddiq Wahid, a columnist and historian.

“What direction the discontent will take will depend on whether civil rights, like holding peaceful protest marches, will again be curbed.”

The PDP had pledged during the election campaign to halt the BJP’s growing influence after Modi swept to power at general polls in May.

    Government of India and NGO’S should preach the people of Kashmir that by scrapping article 370 will attract Indian and Foreign investment to J&K. By scrapping Article 370 The Indian & Foreign Capitalist will be allowed to invest in Tourism Business by erecting infra structure to support Tourism Business. Therefore J&K Population must decide as per Mr. Modi that they want to fight with Hindu’s or Poverty? The Kashmiri have to pick and choose. It will be sincere advise to separatists to go back and dig in their family history to explore that who they really are, Kashmiri Pandits either Kaul or Dar. They are suffering and paying the price for the curse they cast on them selves by demolishing Hindu and Buddhist shrines, Killing their own brother’s Kashmiri Hindu populace since last 400 years. Wake up and explore the possibility of rebuilding J&K including Ladakh region into a Tourist Heaven that will bring a Golden Future for the next coming generations.Don’t follow Pakistan or its crook agenda. Pakistani’s have destroyed their own country by diverting funds to create problem in India by training and supporting terrorists. Pakistan economy in the dole drums. No electric, No Gas, No Drinking water, No Economic Development, No Rail, Defunct Transport System. However Indian Government spent millions to run a Railway all the way to Shrinagar, Kashmir (Billion Dollar Project to build Tallest Rail Bridge) to open the doors for Tourism business as well as employment. One can compare the Economic Development In India and Pakistan. Therefore it is in the best interests of J&K People that make sure and assist New Coalition Government works for the common man of Kashmir. Only Economic Development can solve the problems of Common of J&K Hindu or Muslim alike. Don’t ignore that Those Hindu’s whom Kashmiri hares are main contributors of J&K economy who visit Mata Vashnav Davi each day in day out investing Millions of Rupees to support the state.
