Karachi, August 29, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have warned of mass uprising against any fiddling with the Article 35-A of the Indian Constitution that grants special rights to the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement Chairman, Mir Shahid Saleem speaking at a gathering in Surankot area of Poonch district said that India was hatching one conspiracy after another to change the disputed character of Jammu and Kashmir by fiddling with the Article 35-A of its constitution.
