‘Everything the Delhi Darbar snatched away by unconstitutional and undemocratic means has to be got back’, says the PDP leader after her release from detention
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti, in her first-ever audio message after her release, said the struggle would continue to get back what “the Delhi Darbar snatched away by unconstitutional and undemocratic means”.
“Everything the Delhi Darbar snatched away by unconstitutional and undemocratic means has to be got back, not only that but people of Jammu and Kashmir need to keep struggling for the solution of Jammu and Kashmir, which has led to sacrificing of thousands of lives,” Ms. Mufti said, in a brief audio message released on Tuesday night.
Released after 14 months of detention on Tuesday, Ms. Mufti said the decision of abrogation of Article 370 had been hurting her heart and soul during every moment of her detention.
Describing the August 5, 2019 “black day”, Ms. Mufti said, “No one among us will forget the humiliation of the day Article 370 was abrogated. No one among us can ever forget the robbery and the insult.”
She said the path ahead would not be easy but “I believe that our courage and determination will be our companion in walking this path”.
“Today, when I am released I want the immediate release of everyone from J&K who are languishing in various jails of the country,” she said.
