On JRL’s call, Malik leads protest against abrogation of Article 35-A
State Subject law linked to our right of self determination: Malik
Aug 10, 2018.
Chairman of JKLF, Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday said that tinkering with hereditary State subject law will face a full-fledged agitation from Jammu Kashmir.
“Any change in demography of Jammu Kashmir is detrimental to all inhabitants of this land and people of Jammu Kashmir will spill their blood to safeguard the uniqueness of this land. State subject law is in all respects linked to our right of self determination and any attack on it has grave consequences for our National life,” Malik as per the statement issued to KNS said while addressing protestors at Amira Kadal.
The call for this protest was given by the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), the statement said.
JKLF activists and leaders along with people from all walks of life today staged protests at Amira Kadal Lal Chowk.
Lead by JKLF chairman, elders, youth and businessmen along with people from all walks of life gathered at a park near Amira Kadal and staged a peaceful protest against conspiracies to change the demography of Jammu Kashmir, tinker with the hereditary state subject law and tarnish the unique identity of Jammu Kashmir under the garb of 35A.
Holding placards against proposed abrogation of the state subject law and in favor of freedom, protesters raised enthusiastic slogans on the occasion.
Earlier, Malik addressed people at Masjid Hamza Kokerbazar as well wherein he said that any tinkering with hereditary State subject law will face a full-fledged agitation from Jammu Kashmir. “Any change in demography of Jammu Kashmir is detrimental to all inhabitants of this land and people of Jammu Kashmir will spill their blood to safeguard the uniqueness of this land,” he said.
In his Speech, JKLF chairman said that state subject law and defending it is a matter of life and death for the people of Jammu Kashmir and no Kashmiri will sit silent on its abrogation.
“People of Jammu Kashmir are all one on this matter because its abrogation will affect each one of us. Some Pro-India politicians who for the lust of power have been acting as the collaborators of Indian oppression and occupation are today raising hue and cry about resistance camps involvement in this matter and are saying that it is like defending Indian constitution. We want to tell these hypocrites that nation of Jammu Kashmir from last seventy plus years has been witnessing death, destruction and miseries and it is these people and their parties’ who are responsible for all what Kashmiris are going through,” he said.
He said that people of Jammu Kashmir are striving for their right of self determination and state subject law is directly linked with this right. “State subject law is in all respects linked to our right of self determination and any attack on it has grave consequences for our national life,” Malik said.
Malik said that under the garb of removing 35A, RSS backed BJP and its allies want to abrogate hereditary state subject law enacted in 1927 and hence settle non-Kashmiris on this land. “This is what Israeli Zionists does in Palestine and grabbed land of Palestinian people and made the real inhabitants of that land as slaves and subjugated people. Pro-India supporters who are upset with the peoples support to JRL from Kargil to Poonch and Doda to Srinagar on this matter of life and death should know that Kashmiris will spill their blood to save their identity and uniqueness,” he asserted.
Asking people of Kashmir to keep ready for a full-fledged peoples agitation, Malik said that “if Supreme Court of India delivers any verdict that is against the aspirations of the people of Jammu Kashmir, whole Kashmir will come out on roads and we will not shy away even from spilling our blood on roads and streets to defend hereditary state subject law.”
Condemning the arrest of social activist Advocate Talib Hussain under ‘dubious’ charges and ‘torturing’ him in custody, killing an innocent Syed Murad Shah at Bithendi Jammu and firing on more innocents at Gool Ramban in which one innocent Mudasir ahmad Gujjar got martyred; Malik said that once again Jammu is under attack from fascist forces who want to communalize the environment for their petty political gains.
“This intimidation of Muslims in Jammu is unacceptable and we urge Indian rulers to have some sense and refrain from playing with fire,” he said, adding that Kashmiris are at the back of their Jammu brothers and will do everything possible to safeguard their interests.” (KNS)
