Hurriyat (G) protests against abrogation of Article 35-A
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Friday organized a protest march at Hyderpora Chowk against what they termed as ‘the nefarious designs’ of India to change the demography of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
According to a statement issued here, Hurriyat (G) termed the abrogation of Article 35-A as ‘a deep ploy to legitimize the influx of non-state subjects to occupy our fertile land and green meadows, get employment in all the government departments and ultimately reside permanently in Jammu and Kashmir, which poses a great threat to change the Muslim majority character of Jammu and Kashmir.’
The statement added that Molvi Bashir and Nisar Hussain Rather while addressing the gathering cautioned people against the ‘ill designs of India and its supporters’ to vivisect the unity amongst the freedom loving people of Kashmir.
While elaborating the ‘dangerous consequences’ of any tinkering in Article 35-A, the speakers said “it is a deep conspiracy against our legitimate movement for right to self-determination, which carries multiple negative impacts in its womb to defeat the plebiscite as and when it is granted to the people of Kashmir.”
The leaders reiterated their commitment that they will fight and resist unto death against any onslaught on the demography of Jammu and Kashmir viz-a-viz the movement for right to self-determination.
