JRL Calls For Complete Shutdown


The Joint Resistance Leadership today called for a complete shutdown on February 13 and 14 to protest and resist the viscous move of “late announcement and ambiguity over dates of hearing” in the case.

The hearing is scheduled in the Supreme Court on February 13 and 14 while the state government has requested the apex court to defer the hearing since there is president’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir.

JRL comprising of octogenarian Hurriyat patriarch Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik said that people of Jammu and Kashmir will forcefully resist every challenge by New Delhi to change the demography of the State by rolling back hereditary state subject laws of 1927, being contested in the Supreme Court of India through their agents.

JRL, in a statement, said that the late announcement and ambiguity over the dates of hearing of 35-A and 370 by Supreme Court on 13 or 14 of February is worrisome, and indicates of mischief.
