Mehbooba Mufti condemns Indian govt’s decision to revoke Article 370
President of the Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party Mehbooba Mufti termed the BJP’s move to revoke Article 370 as the darkest day in Indian democracy.
Mehbooba Mufti to Twitter and said, “Decision of J&K leadership to reject 2 nation theory in 1947 & align with India has backfired. Unilateral decision of GOI to scrap Article 370 is illegal & unconstitutional which will make India an occupation force in J&K.”
Today marks the darkest day in Indian democracy. Decision of J&K leadership to reject 2 nation theory in 1947 & align with India has backfired. Unilateral decision of GOI to scrap Article 370 is illegal & unconstitutional which will make India an occupational force in J&K.

“It will have catastrophic consequences for the subcontinent. GOIs intentions are clear. They want the territory of J&K by terrorising it’s people. India has failed Kashmir in keeping its promises,” Mufti added.
She added that the BJP wanted to change the demography of the only Muslim majority state in India and disempower Muslims to the extent where they become second class citizens in their own state.
The Indian government (today) Monday introduced a resolution to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution which grants special status to occupied Kashmir, as tensions mounted in the disputed valley with unprecedented numbers of Indian troops deployed in the region.
