SRINAGAR, Jan 11: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today said that people of Jammu and Kashmir will resist tooth and nail any move aimed at changing the demographic composition of the state.
He alleged that this time it is being done by New Delhi through the judicial route by challenging the state subject law in Supreme Court of India. Such a move will have a huge bearing on the disputed nature of the state and the movement for self-determination.
Addressing the Friday congregation at Jamia Masjid Mirwaiz said, "Leadership is keenly watching with concern and will lead the people’s agitation if any move to roll back these provisions is allowed.”
He said people also have to remain alert and updated on these developments. “Since the case regarding Article 35 A is coming up for hearing soon, Joint Resistance Leadership is in consultation with all on the matter and is looking at the form of protests that will be observed against it and people will be informed on it very soon,” Mirwaiz said.
Mirwaiz also lambasted the authorities for slapping three youth of Bandipora Tauseef Lone, Abdul Samad and Suhail Parray under PSA and shifting them to Kot Bhalwal prison in Jammu, terming it as ‘highly authoritarian move’.
He said “such injustices and coercion by the authoritarian state is pushing our youth to take up arms; when the same youth are killed in gunfights, the Indian state hails these killings terming it as “Badi Kamyabi” (big success)”
On the occasion, Mirwaiz also launched the Year 2019/Hijri calendar by Anjuman-e-Auqaf Jamia Masjid under the aegis of Mirwaiz Foundation.
