Mufti expressed hope that the illegal changes made in IIOJK since August 2019” will be reversed and said that the decision to repeal the three farm laws stemmed from electoral compulsions and fear of drubbing in elections.
Besides Article 370 and 35A, many Muslim organisations and religious leaders have called for the repeal of the contentious CAA and NRC and UAPA.
Syed Sadatullah Hussaini, President, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, called CAA-NRC “anti-people and anti-constitutional laws and urged the Indian PM to withdraw them at the earliest.
“All draconian laws, including CAA and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), need to be withdrawn,” said President of Majlis-e-Mushawarat, Navaid Hamid.
The Muslim leaders have claimed that the CAA movement encouraged the farmers to protest against the farm laws.
The CAA allows persecuted minorities belonging to the Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Parsi, and Christian communities from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan to avail of Indian citizenship.
