“Tinkering with hereditary state subject law will face a full-fledged agitation from Jammu Kashmir. Any change in the demography of Jammu Kashmir is detrimental to all inhabitants of this land and people of J&K will spill their blood to safeguard the uniqueness of this land,” said the chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday.Addressing the people at Amira Kadal (Lal Chowk) who were protesting against the intended abrogation of state subject law in Jammu Kashmir, Malik said, “State subject law is in all respects linked to our right of self-determination and any attack on it has grave consequences for our national life.”According to a statement issued to GNS, JKLF activists and leaders along with people from all walks of life staged a protest at Amira Kadal Lal Chowk which was led by Malik.JKLF chief in his address said, “The state subject law and defending it is a matter of life and death for the people of Jammu Kashmir and no Kashmiri will sit silent on its abrogation. The people of Jammu Kashmir are all one on this matter because its abrogation will affect each one of us,” he said.“Some pro-India politicians who for the lust of power have been acting as the collaborators of Indian oppression and occupation are today raising hue and cry about resistance camps involvement in this matter and are saying that it is like defending Indian constitution.
We want to tell these hypocrites that nation of Jammu Kashmir from last seventy plus years has been witnessing death, destruction and miseries and it is these people and their parties who are responsible for all what Kashmiris are going through,” he said.Malik said that people of Jammu Kashmir are striving for their right of self-determination and state subject law is directly linked with this right.Asking people of Kashmir to get ready for a “full-fledged people’s agitation”, JKLF chairman said that if Supreme Court of India delivers any verdict that is against the aspirations of the people of Jammu Kashmir, whole Kashmir will come out on roads. “We will not shy away even from spilling our blood on roads and streets to defend hereditary state subject law,” he said.Malik according to statement also “condemned the arrest of social activist Advocate Talib Hussain under dubious charges and torturing him in custody, killing an innocent Syed Murad Shah at Bathindi Jammu and firing on more innocents at Gool Ramban in which one innocent Mudasir ahmad Gujjar got martyred”.“Once again Jammu is under attack from fascist forces who want to communalize the environment for their petty political gains. This intimidation of Muslims in Jammu is unacceptable and we urge Indian rulers to have some sense and refrain from playing with fire,” JKLF chairman said adding that “Kashmiris are at the back of their Jammu brothers and will do everything possible to safeguard their interests”.
