National Conference patron Farooq Abdullah also called for “united fight against the attempts to abrogate Article 35A”.“Jammu or Kashmir or Ladakh have to come together over the issue,” said Abdullah, who met a civil society group, ‘We the people of J&K’, which is spearheading a campaign against the revocation.The Kashmir and Jammu regions witnessed street protests in Anantnag, Srinagar and Rajouri on Friday, three days ahead of the Supreme Court’s scheduled hearing on the petitions challenging Article 35A, which grants special privileges to residents of the State.The Hurriyat and the JKLF held demonstrations in the Valley. Over 300 lawyers in Jammu passed a resolution for retaining Article 35 A.Mirwaiz, in series of tweets, said that no court whether of India or Pakistan has any right to take decisions about Jammu and Kashmir having implications on the overall settlement of the “dispute”. Mirwaiz also said that Kashmiris will never allow tinkering with Article 35A and are ready to lay down their lives for its protection. (PTK)
