Bilawal to celebrate Eid in Kashmir


Our Correspondent


Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday decided to celebrate Eidul Azha in Muzafarabad. The decision came; just days after India striped occupied Kashmir of its special status by revoking Article 370 and 35A, to show solidarity with the Kashmiris. Bilawal also decided to meet the leadership of All Pakistan Hurriyet Conference.
Earlier on August 6, amid escalating tension in occupied Kashmir following deployment of tens of thousands of additional troops, the Indian government ended special status of the valley while scrapping articles 35A and 370 of the Constitution. In a malicious attempt to turn Muslim majority into minority in occupied Kashmir, the Indian president has signed a four-point amendment decree in this regard.
The announcement was made by Indian Home Minister Amit Shah during his address in Rajya Sabha, upper house of Indian parliament. Shah said, ‘Kashmir will no longer be a state. It will be divided into two union territories – Kashmir, which will have a legislature, and Ladakh, which will be without a legislature.’ He also told that the valley would be re-organized geographically.’
The revocation of the articles has allowed other non-Muslim Indian citizens to buy land in the valley while a separate legislative assembly will be established there for its own laws.
