Hurriyat (M) chief Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday warned of a peoples agitation if the pro-India regional parties failed to protect the special status of the state.
APHC chairman Mirwaiz Dr. Molvi Mohammad Umar Farooq who continues to be under house arrest and was once again barred from delivering Friday Sermon at Jama Masjid Srinagar in a statement said that after the passing of GST that did away with the state’s fiscal autonomy of disputed J&K hectic efforts are underway by the BJP RSS to altogether do away with the special status of J&K.
Mirwaiz said it is basically aimed at reducing the 75% Muslim majority of the state into a minority and change the basic character of the state in order to undermine and deeply affect its disputed nature. He said it being done under a deliberate plan and is part of the much flaunted “final solution ” to the Kashmir dispute by the Indian state led by the RSS.
Mirwaiz said it is a very serious and critical matter and pro India regional parties are duty bound to the people of JK not to allow it to happen and it is their responsibility to ensure that such designs are thwarted and resisted and the special status of the state protected at all cost.
Mirwaiz said otherwise people will hit the streets as there is no way such measures will be tolerated by them, consequences of which will again be the sole responsibility of these parties.
