Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a shutdown in Kashmir on August 12 to protest the attempts to abrogate Article 35-A and atrocities against people, especially those residing in south Kashmir. In a statement, the JRL appealed to the people to take to streets against the attempts to abrogate the State subject law in the state which they said in vogue for centuries here. They appealed to the people to observe a complete shutdown on Saturday, August 12 to register their protest. 'Ongoing killing spree, genocide of young Kashmiris, hooliganism of forces in entire Kashmir, especially south Kashmir, NIA-ED terrorism to divert attention of Indian public and international community from these atrocities and ploy to change hundreds of years old state subject law in Jammu Kashmir will face stern resistance from Kashmiris,' said JRL. 'People of Kashmir will observe a complete shut down on Saturday 12th August 2017 against these condemnable Indian plots,' said the leadership.
