“Unilateral decision of GOI to scrap Article 370 is illegal, unconstitutional; will make India occupational force in J&K,” added Mufti.
Today marks the darkest day in Indian democracy. Decision of J&K leadership to reject 2 nation theory in 1947 & align with India has backfired. Unilateral decision of GOI to scrap Article 370 is illegal & unconstitutional which will make India an occupational force in J&K.

The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir alleged that the Modi government wants the territory of Kashmir by terrorising its people. “Article 370 move will have catastrophic consequences for the subcontinent, they want territory of J&K by terrorising its people,” said Mufti who was placed under house arrest on Sunday evening.
“India has failed Kashmir in keeping its promises,” an angry Mufti wrote on Twitter.
