The Executive Committee members of the J&K High Court Bar Association Srinagar, in a meeting held here today, under the Presidentship of Mr. M. A.

The Executive members also decided to endorse the shutdown call given by the JRL for 17th of November, 2018 against the holding of Panchayat Polls in the State, so as to impress upon the world community that holding of any kind of elections in the State are not a solution to the long pestering problem of Kashmir and/or a substitute for the holding of a plebiscite, which has been promised to the people of the State by the U.N. Security Council in terms of its various resolutions, which have been accepted and acknowledged by both India and Pakistan before the world fora. The members also stressed upon the imperative of resolving the Kashmir issue according to the wishes of the people, so as to bring to an end, the worst kind of human rights violations, which are taking place in the State for the last 70 years in general and 30 years in particular, by withdrawing all the draconian laws from the State, which provide immunity to the Govt. forces to shoot any Kashmiri at their whim and caprice and/or to destroy and damage any property, on mere suspicion, which is against all the safeguards provided by the International law in a conflict area.
