Banihal, November 24

PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday asked the Centre to restore Article 370 and resolve the Kashmir issue if it wants to “keep Kashmir”, saying people want return of “our identity and honour” and that too with interest.

Addressing a public rally at Neel village of Banihal, she said the people of Jammu and Kashmir have decided “our fate with Mahatma Gandhi’s India, which gave us Article 370, our own Constitution and flag” and cannot live with (Nathuram) Godse’s India.

Mehbooba asked the people to stand united and “strengthen their voice for the success of struggle in support of the restoration of special status guaranteed by the Constitution and safeguard the identity and honour of people of Jammu and Kashmir”.

Noting that history is testimony to the fact that no powerful nation has ruled people on the might of guns, she said, “You cannot keep Kashmir by holding a stick or a gun (on the heads of the people)… the US failed to rule Afghanistan on the strength of power and had to leave the country.” — PTI
