Unite to save JK’s special status: Hurriyat (G) to people  

Srinagar, Aug 01: Hurriyat Conference (G) Majlish Shoora (Executive Council) on Wednesday held an emergency meeting presided over by its Secretary-General, Haji Ghulam Nabi Sumji.

The meeting discussed the volatile situation in the wake of abrogating all the legal and constitutional barriers to turn Muslim majority into a mere minority in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to a statement, the meeting expressed its grave concern on this grave issue and termed it as a do or die matter for the people of Kashmir. We are on the crossroads of our history where the nation has to decide whether to live or perish in the garb of Indian political, economic and cultural aggression. The meeting strongly felt that to defeat the nefarious designs of Indian aggression, be it in the form of economic, geographic, political or cultural, the need of the hour is a strong unity amongst all the sections of the society.
The meeting pledged to support vehemently the program chalked out by Joint Hurriyat Leadership in letter and spirit and termed the unanimous support by all the trade unions, Bar Association, Employees, Intellectuals, Transporters, students as highly laudable.

The meeting while elaborating the negative impact of any imbalance in the demography of Jammu and Kashmir termed it as opening flood-gates of Indian aggression. People will be rendered, homeless, jobless and strange fellows in their homeland as and when Article 35-A, Article 370 and other provisions of public safety act which prohibits lodgment of detenues outside the state of Jammu and Kashmir, get tempered. The meeting expressed its serious concern on importing Putwaris and Tehsildars from outside, sale and purchase of our land to the Indian capitalists and sending those incarcerated even under section 107 or 13ULA to Tihar Jail etc.
