This is a matter of life and death for us and we will spill our blood to safeguard it.

Joint resistance leadership said that RSS backed Indian rulers are hatching conspiracies to change the demography of Jammu Kashmir. Inspired by Israeli tactics, RSS backed rulers with the active support of their Kashmiri stooges have launched a multi-pronged strategy to change demography in Jammu Kashmir. Conspirators have taken this case to their supreme court and which immediately admitted the plea though according to many law knowing dignitaries it should have not been admitted as same Supreme Court more than once in past has rejected similar kind of petitions on 35 A , said JRL leaders .
Leaders said that India is using NIA coercion to defame and weaken Kashmiri resistance. Today so-called biggest democracy is bullying Kashmiris that if anyone raises his or her voice against illegal occupation, he will be sent to Tihar jail Delhi. Similarly on GST issue, Indian leaders claimed that its implementation in Jammu Kashmir meant economic integration of Jammu Kashmir with rest of India. Likewise demonetization is being termed successful because it supposedly has diluted Kashmiri resistance movement. United Leadership said that India considers Jammu Kashmir as its colony and is attempting everything to suppress the resistance of the people of Jammu Kashmir and removing 35A is also part of these efforts.
JRL said that we don’t want our people to suffer in any way as we all are aware of the hardships people of Kashmir are facing but when it comes to issue of life and death especially in ones collective (National) existence, no choice is left for a weak people but to show resistance.
JRL said that it is India and its Kashmiri stooges who on daily basis are tossing up new controversies to inflame the harvest of peace in Jammu Kashmir. From last three years we have witnessed many controversial proposals and ideas being floated by Indian rulers who only want to inflict more and more harm to people of Jammu Kashmir. This new controversy of 35A is also aimed at hurting our dignity; inflict more miseries on us and change the demography of our land, so that our resistance against illegal occupation is finished completely.
JRL said that as a living nation, Kashmiris fully know to safeguard their dignity and resistance and whatever be the cost, we will resist every evil design of India which is detrimental to our sacred cause. JRL said that any meddling with state subject law is only aimed at changing the demography of Jammu Kashmir. This issue is directly related to our right of self determination and so we all need to fight for it with unity and steadfastness. JRL leadership said that this matter is related to our life and death and we will not shy away from spilling our blood to safeguard it.
