Hurriyat (M) Conference under the chairmanship of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Monday held a meeting at Hurriyat headquarters Rajbagh, in which all members participated to discuss the “serious threat posed to article 35A dealing with the heredity state subject laws of the state since 1927.”
The spokesman in a statement said that all members expressed grave concern at this onslaught against the people of J&K by New Delhi by allowing and encouraging various PILs, to challenge 35A in the Supreme Court of India.
Hurriyat members said that the motive behind this move is to change the demographic character of J&K by turning its original citizens into a minority through settling outsiders here and hence undo its internationally recognized disputed nature and the need to resolve that dispute.
Hurriyat said that no court whether in India or in Pakistan has any jurisdiction to take decisions that can in any way affect the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir as its original citizens are yet to exercise the right to determine their final dispensation as promised by scores of UN resolutions and backed by India and Pakistan.
The members reiterated that Kashmir was is and will remain an internationally recognized dispute until it is resolved as per the aspirations of its people.
They said that all such ploys will be greatly resisted both by the leadership and people of J&K and there is no way that tinkering with 35A will be taken lying low or tolerated. Leadership and People with defend it with their life if the need arises.
The members fully supported the JRL call for protest strike on August 5 and 6, 2018 and an all-out mass agitation if any mischief is done with 35A. They said that all segments of society are completely one on this.
