August 25, 2018

SRINAGAR: Hurriyat conference has called for two days strike on August 30 and 31 in the region, against the onslaught on the Article 35-A of the Indian Constitution that bars non-Kashmiris from purchasing land and property in the territory. Hurriyat leaders Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik have appealed for two days shutter-down strike in the territory, on August 30 and 31. Strike aims to protest against the onslaught on the Article 35-A of the Indian Constitution that grants special rights and privileges to the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir and bars the non-Kashmiris from purchasing land and property in the territory. The Indian Supreme Court will hear the petitions challenging the Article 35-A, on August 31.INP
