Srinagar, Feb 13: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has said that the protest strike call against hearing of Article 35-A case in Supreme Court of India on February 14, has been withdrawn after the lawyers conveyed to the leadership that in the cause list issued by the SC, it is not listed for hearing tomorrow.
The Kashmir Bar Association led by senior lawyers Mian Qayoom, Zafar Shah, Zaffar Qureshi, Mohd Ashraf and others are in New Delhi defending the case at the Supreme Court on behalf of the people of J&K. They are in touch with the leadership, JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik said in a statement.
JRL said the senior lawyers of Bar will be present at the Supreme Court for the whole day tomorrow (Thursday) as well and will closely monitor the case and update the leadership about it.
The leadership reiterated that people of Jammu and Kashmir will forcefully resist every challenge by New Delhi to change the demography of the State and warned the authorities that if anything adverse to the interests of the people of J&K and its disputed status is announced through the courts, a mass people’s agitation will be started instantly across the state and the responsibility of the consequences of that will be entirely on those forcing us to react.
