The President of the Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mehbooba Mufti, warned today that if the Indian government disturbed the constitutional status of Kashmir, people of Kashmir will stop using Indian flag.

She was referring to the Article 35A related to the special rights and privileges given to the people of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K). From Tuesday, the Supreme Court of India has scheduled to hear petitions that demand the abrogation of Article 35.

“Don’t play with fire; don’t fiddle with Article 35A, else you will see what you haven’t seen since 1947. If it’s attacked then I don’t know which flag people of J&K will be forced to pick up instead of the tricolour (Indian flag),” Mehbooba Mufti warned the Indian government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

A couple of days ago, she had strongly condemned the Modi government’s move to arrest the Hurriyat / separatist leaders in the Kashmir Valley, which is experiencing an unprecedented unrest after the recent terror attack on CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) men in the Pulwama district of J&K.

All Parties Hurriyat Conference or Hurriyat is an alliance of 26 political, social, and religious organizations formed as a united political front to raise the cause of Kashmiri separatism.
