JRL Urges Imams To Raise Article 35A


SRINAGAR — Joint Resistance Leadership has urged Imams and Khateebs across Jammu and Kashmir to make people aware about the designs of Indian state in tinkering with the State Subject Law and take people’s commitment to protest and resist the move at all cost in their Eid sermons.

 The Leadership comprising Syed Ali Geelani,Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik also urged Imams to ask people to raise their voice with full force against the assault on state subject laws and the continuous detention of hundreds of political prisoners after congregational Eid ul Azha prayers across Kashmir.

The Leadership expressed its serious concern over the plight of Kashmiri political prisoners languishing in Indian jails for years and those booked by ED and NIA and lodged  in solitary confinement and kept away from the basic medical facilities posing  a huge threat to their lives.They said people and leadership express their solitary and support to them

The Leadership said that on one hand GOI is employing ploys to change the Muslim majority character of the State by trying to roll back state subject law and hence undermine its disputed nature ,while on the other hand, notices and summons are being sent to resistance leadership to push them into submission.

The Leadership also asked Ulema and Imams of masjids and shrines of Kashmir to play their role in  highlighting the sacrifices offered by the people of Kashmir and the oppression unleashed on Kashmiris and convey to the world community the dire need of their intervention to stop the ongoing repression in Kashmir and resolve the dispute.
