Tomorrow’s shutdown will show people’s readiness for agitation: Mirwaiz

18

Srinagar: Chairman Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Sunday said that tomorrow’s shutdown will show readiness of people for all out agitation.

The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), of which Mirwaiz Umar is part, has called for two day shutdown in Kashmir against the hearing to abrogate Article 35-A, which gives “permanent resident” status to people of Jammu and Kashmir. It also bars non-state people from holding any property in the state.

“By observing an exemplary protest strike today, people of J&K have send a clear message to GOI that their agenda to change the demographic character of the state and its disputed nature will not be tolerated,” Mirwaiz Umar tweeted.

He added, “Tomorrow’s protest strike will send a sterner message of peoples resistance and readiness for agitation.”


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
