APHC (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday said that no court has the jurisdiction to tamper with the 1927 hereditary state subject laws of J&K.Addressing the Friday gathering at historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar, Mirwaiz said UN resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir clearly state that the citizens of J&K are to decide their final dispensation as a people, by exercising the right to self-determination – a right which is yet to be exercised by us.He said the commitment to right to self-determination was made to people of J&K by the PM of India himself both before people of State and the world. “So how can any court challenge the UN resolutions and the commitments made by GoI that took the shape of constitutional safeguards till GoI honoured its commitments,” he said.According to a statement issued to GNS, APHC (M) chairman said that J&K is a world acknowledged dispute and people of the state will not allow dilution of the dispute till it is resolved.“The move of (tinkering with the state subject law)is  aimed at undermining the dispute by changing the demography of the state, settling outsiders here and making the locals a minority in their own land along the Israeli pattern in Palestine,” he said, adding, “This will not be tolerated was shown by the exceptional protest strike observed by the people of the whole state from end to end on 5th and 6th of August.”

Mirwaiz said that leadership is urgently deliberating upon the issue and taking all segments of society on board to launch a massive protest agitation to counter “this onslaught against us”.“While successive governments in India steadily violated the conditions of the temporal accession it had agreed upon till plebiscite was held in the state, the sad part is that the pro-India Kashmiri leaders and parties who had negotiated the conditions with GoI were unable to either safeguard these conditions or compel Govt of India to uphold them,” he said.“Instead, on the contrary, these parties and their leadership for their weakness of chair, became willing tools in the systemic violation of these conditions from time to time over the past seventy years till things have come to such a pass where our very existence is under grave threat,” he said.Mirwaiz said that no effort will be spared to safeguard the interests of people of J&K and its disputed nature. “The tremendous sacrifices offered by such a small nation which is standing its ground in the face of such a mighty adversary speaks volumes about the courage and determination of its brave inhabitants,” he said.Meanwhile, a protest march was carried out by Awami Action Committee (AAC) leaders and activists outside Jamia Masjid Srinagar in defence of the state subject law, the statement said.
