Article 35 A hearing :Mirwaiz asks cadres to be ready for mass agitation


Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Tuesday asked his cadres and activists to be ready for all out mass agitation incase Article 35-A is tinkered with.

Taking to Twitter, Mirwaiz said no attempt will be tolerated to change the disputed nature and demographic character of Jammu and Kashmir.

“Meeting of #Hurriyat (took place) at Rajbagh (office of the amalgam), regarding 35A. Any attempt to change demographic character of J&K and its disputed nature intolerable! (I) asked cadres and activists to be ready for all out mass agitation if any tinkering with 35A allowed,” Mirwaiz wrote on his Twitter handle soon after a meeting held at amalgam’s Rajbagh office.

The Supreme Court of India will on August 6 hear the petitions challenging the validity of Article 35-A which defines the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Mirwaiz also urged New Delhi to respond positively to PTI chief and Pakistan prime minister elect Imran Khan’s call for dialogue on Kashmir.“The meeting welcomed the recent statement of PTI chief Imran Khan calling for dialogue on #Kashmir. We urge Govt of India to respond positively to this offer and start a meaningful dialogue with Pakistan and people of Kashmir to end hostilities and give peace a real chance,” Mirwaiz said. (CNS)
