The leader of the PDP had termed the initial decision not only as a verdict for Jammu and Kashmir but also as a “death penalty” for India’s thoughts.
Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, said on Sunday that the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370 is not “God’s decision.” She stated that her party, the PDP, will continue its struggle to grant special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
“We won’t lose hope. The people of Jammu and Kashmir have struggled for many years, facing losses. They want us to lose hope, accept defeat, and sit at home. That won’t happen,” she said.
The PDP leader had earlier referred to the decision not only as a verdict for Jammu and Kashmir but also as a “death penalty” for India’s thoughts. He urged people not to lose hope and emphasized that a political struggle has been ongoing in the region for decades.
Omar Abdullah, the Vice President of the National Conference, also expressed disappointment with the decision and pledged to continue the struggle. He said, “Even if there is no hope, there is still not failure. The evening of sorrow is long, but it is just an evening.”
The Supreme Court upheld the government’s decision to abrogate Article 370, which granted special status to the former state of Jammu and Kashmir. The court stated that steps should be taken to conduct elections for the Legislative Assembly of the Union Territory by September 30 of the next year.
Chief Justice of India Dhananjay Y. Chandrachud, along with justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Sanjeev Khanna, Bhushan Ar Gavai, and Justice Surya Kant unanimously supported the government’s August 2019 decision, calling it the “fulfillment of the process of integration” of the former state into the Indian Union.
