Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik on Wednesday withdrew their call for a shutdown on Thursday as the team of lawyers of the Kashmir High Court Bar Association conveyed to the leadership that the petitions challenging Article 35A are not listed for hearing in the Supreme Court on Thursday.
The Kashmir Bar association team led by senior lawyers Mian Qayoom, Zafar Shah, Zaffar Qureshi, Mohd Ashraf and others is in New Delhi to defend Article 35A at the Supreme Court.
The JRL said in a statement that the senior lawyers of the Bar will be present at the Supreme Court for the whole day on Thursday to closely monitor the listing of the Article 35A case and inform the leadership about it.
The JRL reiterated that “people of Jammu and Kashmir will forcefully resist every challenge by New Delhi to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir and warned the authorities that if anything adverse to the interests of the people of J&K and its disputed status is announced through the courts, a mass people’s agitation will be started instantly across the state and the responsibility of the consequences of that will be entirely on those forcing us to react.”
