Jammu Kashmir liberation front chief Yasin Malik on Friday said the people of Jammu and Kashmir are ready to defend Article 35-A “with their blood”
Malik was speaking after the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) staged a protest in Srinagar against the “planned abrogation” of Article 35-A.
Soon after Friday prayers at Bilal Masjid at the Bund in Srinagar, people holding placards in favour of article 35-A led by Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik took out a protest march.
The demonstrations were held in response to a call by JRL to protest the attempts to abrogate special status of Jammu and Kashmir in the Constitution of India
Earlier, JRL warned of mass agitation across the state if article 35A is tinkered with,” We want to make it clear to Indian government that any attempt made at changing the demographic nature of the state will be stiffly resisted,” the JRL had said
