SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF)on Tuesday warned against any meddling with the state subject law of Jammu Kashmir saying Kashmiris will spill their blood to safeguard their unique identity and character.
“This issue is directly related to our right of self-determination, so we all need to fight for it with unity and steadfastness,” Malik said in a statement issued here.
He termed the state subject law and guarding it as a “matter of life and death” for the people of Jammu Kashmir. “The intended onslaught on hereditary state subject law will face a stiff resistance from every citizen of Jammu Kashmir and Kashmiris will not even shy away from spilling their blood to safeguard their unique identity and character,” he said.
He said Indian rulers from day one have been busy in hatching “conspiracies” to change the demography of Jammu Kashmir and this plea in the Supreme Court of India is also part of the same “conspiracy”.
“This new controversy on 35-A is aimed at hurting our dignity, inflicting more miseries on us and changing the demography of our land, so that our resistance against illegal occupation is defeated completely,” Malik said.
“As a living nation, Kashmiris fully know to safeguard their dignity and resistance and whatever be the cost, we will resist every evil design of India which is detrimental to our sacred cause,” he added.
JKLF chairman asked Kashmiri Diaspora to intensify efforts to protest against moves aimed at changing the demography of Jammu Kashmir and highlight the “conspiratorial” moves by Indian rulers against the people of Jammu Kashmir.
“JKLF leaders and activists along with those living in UK, USA, Europe, UAE, Middle East, Pakistan and Azad Kashmir (Pakistan-administered Kashmir) will also stage peaceful demonstrations against these ill-moves and motives and raise their united voice in defence of our national life, dignity and character,” he said.
Malik also condemned the NIA raid on incarcerated DeM chief Syeda Asiya Andrabi is lodged at Mandawali Jail, Delhi.
