SRINAGAR: The joint resistance leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has reiterated that any tinkering with the state subject law through judicial route will be resisted tooth and nail by the people of Jammu & Kashmir.
In a statement issued here, the leadership said the case regarding Article 35-A is again coming up for hearing in the Supreme Court on March 6 and 7, and a high level delegation of Bar Association has already reached Delhi who will be monitoring and defending it.
The team will keep the leadership intimated and people will be accordingly informed, JRL said.
The leadership said, “In the past also, many efforts were made and many ploys employed to damage the disputed status of Kashmir but people through their stiff resistance always foiled such designs and this time also, if any adverse move is made in this regard, people and leaders are fully ready to resist it.”
JRL also paid tributes to two armed youth, Adfar Fayaz Parray and Irfan Ahmed Rather, who were killed in an encounter with government forces in Tral area of south Kashmir.
“It is very painful that youth pushed to the wall are taking to arms and losing life,” the leadership said and strongly condemned forces’ action in Tral.
“Live ammunition was used against the people resulting in the grave injuries to 25-year-old youth Farooq Ahmed,” JRL said and prayed for the youth’s speedy recovery.
