No court has jurisdiction to tamper with Article 35 A: Mirwaiz


Addressing the Friday gathering at Jamia Masjid Srinagar, Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that no court has the jurisdiction to tamper with the 1927 hereditary state subject laws of J&K because UN resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir clearly state that the citizens of J&K are to decide their final dispensation as a people, by exercising the right to self-determination.

The spokesman in a statement said that commitment to Right to Self Determination was made to people of J&K by the PM of India himself both before people of J&K and before the world. So how can any court challenge the UN resolutions and the commitments made by GOI that took the shape of constitutional safeguards till GOI honored its commitments?

Chairman said that J&K is a world acknowledged dispute and people of the state will at no cost allow dilution of the dispute till it is resolved. He said the move of (tinkering with the State Subject Law) is aimed at undermining the dispute, by changing the demography of the state.

Meanwhile, a protest march was carried out by Awami Action Committee leaders and activists outside Jamia Masjid Srinagar in defence of the state subject law.
