Srinagar, August 03, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Friday staged a protest in Srinagar against the assault on Article 35-A of the Indian constitution. Soon after the culmination of Friday prayers at Bilal Masjid at the Bund in Srinagar, scores of Hurriyat leaders and activists led by Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik took out a protest march.
Speaking on the occasion, Yasin Malik said that the people of Kashmir were ready to defend the Article 35-A with their blood. The demonstrations were held in response to a call by the JRL to protest the attempts to abrogate special status enjoyed by Jammu and Kashmir under the Indian Constitution. The JRL has called for shutdown on August 5 and 6 to express resentment against the hearing in the Indian Supreme Court of a petition seeking repeal of the Article 35-A.
