Srinagar, February 14 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir Chairman, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai has said that any misadventure against Article 35A will have catastrophic repercussions, as it is a matter of life and death for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai in a statement issued in Srinagar said, the agenda of Indian establishment is to erode the internationally recognized disputed status of the territory. He added that abrogation of Article 35A would lead to creation of another Palestine in South Asia and the people of Kashmir would have no identity, at individual or collective levels. He said, “All segments of society are on the same page to resist and fight this serious assault on our existence.”

Sehrai said, “The irreversible nature of relationship between India and Kashmir has no legal foundations. It is founded on the fraud and brute reality of power. The attempt to change the demography of J&K and to bulldoze its disputed nature has always been top agenda of BJP and RSS and challenging the Article 35A in the Indian Supreme Court by RSS-backed NGOs is a part of the very plan.”

He urged the Indian Supreme Court to dismiss this sinister petition or else people from all corners of the territory would come on the roads against it. He termed the political whims and deceitful politics of pro-India parties yet another cruel joke with the history of Kashmir stained by their predecessors since 1947.

He said, “Articles 35A is another tool of exploitation in the hands of all pro-India political parties, which are instrumental in abrogating these constitutional barriers to change the state subject laws and demography of the territory.

Sehrai appreciated the role played by the High Bar Association and the lawyers who left no stone upturned to safeguard and defend the Article 35A with limited resources.
