Jammu and Kashmir: Will fight for restoration of Article 370, says Mehbooba Mufti after release


Srinagar: In her first statement after she was released from detention on Tuesday evening, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said the decision of abrogating Article 370 was weighing on her mind during her detention and that she will fight for the reversal of the decision.

“The black decision on that black day was impinging on my heart and soul during detention. Most people in J&K will be having the same feelings, nobody will forget the dacoity and humiliation of that day,” Mehbooba Mufti said in an audio message.

She said the revocation of Article 370 in August last year was an illegal and undemocratic decision.

“The people of J&K will have to fight unanimously for the reversal of this decision and for the resolution of the Kashmir issue which has taken thousands of lives. It is not going to be an easy task, but our steadfastness will guide us,” Mehbooba Mufti said.

The former Chief Minister also said that all those who have been put under detention in different jails across the country must be released.
