Assault on 35-A an assault on our soul and identity: Dr Farooq Abdullah

Srinagar

National Conference on Friday held a commemorative function and congregational Fateha Khwani at the grave of Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, in Srinagar to pay tributes to him on his 35th death anniversary.

National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah and working President Omar Abdullah attended the commemorative function and offered Fateha at the Mazaar in Hazratbal.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Abdullah said the assault on the State’s special status was a challenge that should unite everyone who is sincere towards the people and is committed to defend the State’s unique political and cultural identity.

“The assault on Article 35-A is an assault on our soul and our identity and we should all unite to defend our honour. The powers that be are using myths and distortions to support their long-cherished goal of weakening J&K from within but in the end the truth always prevails. Article 35-A is not for any one region or religion of the State but is an article of faith and honour for all regions and religions. The party’s outreach and awareness programme is being met with overwhelming response in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh regions and this is a proof of our unity in standing up for our rights as one State and one people irrespective of our religion, region, caste or creed”, Dr. Farooq Abdullah added.
