According to IANS report, Mufti also said that, "you are not targeting separatists who have an agenda to secede but you are weakening the forces who have accepted India, participated in elections".

"As Article 35 A saves state subject laws from applicability of concept of equality, it has lead to situation on unequal treatment of female state subjects and their children within state (sic)". "Let me make it very clear", Mehbooba said at an event on Kashmir in Srinagar.

CM of Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti is saddened to the see the way India is being projected on television prime times.

She said legislators from Pakistani side of Kashmir should be allowed to come here and interact with the lawmakers on the Indian side to know each other's viewpoint.

Furthermore, Mufti while backing the people of her state vehemently denied the idea of revoking the state's special status granted as per Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, and said the flag and the special status were a crucial element of preserving the Valley's culture and heritage.

The Article 35 (A) is being challenged in the Supreme Court by NGO "We The Citizens" on its legal basis because the article was never presented before the Parliament and executed on the orders of President of India. Even as there is political distrust, there is huge trust between people, Mufti emphasized adding that idea of India is not complete without the idea of Kashmir.

Maintaining that the BJP will stand by their "Agenda of Alliance" and wouldn't seek adjustment of the existing constitutional position, Sethi said "it is equally true that Art 35 A has created more harm to state than any other provision of law".

Urging people in India to understand that the idea of Kashmir was like the idea of India, the chief minister said, "The basic question is how much the idea of India was ready to accommodate the idea of Kashmir". "Unfortunately, with the passage of time something happened somewhere that both sides (state and centre) started doing dishonesty". When I was growing, she represented India for me.

"She, in fact, said that the only solution to Kashmir will be found by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We are not doing anything about that", she said.

"J&K used to be a hub of trade before 1947 and our culture has an influence of Central Asia just like in India, Mughals brought their influence", Mehbooba said.

She then drew attention to the 2005 working groups constituted to address the internal dimensions of the Kashmir issue.

The Lahore Declaration is a bilateral agreement and governance treaty between India and Pakistan which was signed in 1999 before the Kargil war.
