Farooq Abdullah

Farooq Abdullah and his son and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah were detained after the repeal of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. A delegation of National Conference leaders had met them earlier this month.

As political parties came down heavily on Governor Satya Pal Malik and the Centre for putting these leaders under house arrest, the Raj Bhavan said that such decisions are taken by the local police administration and the Governor had no role to play in it.

Masoodi said that everything is "meaningless" as Article 370, 35A and special status are the "primary importance" for the party.

Farooq and his son Omar Abdullah are under preventive detention following the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5.

Farooq Abdullah, his son Omar Abdullah, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and various local leaders were taken into custody following the abrogation of provisions of Article 370

It should be noted that a total of 30 more leaders across the party lines have been named as the members of this Committee.

The abolition of Article 370 has taken away their privileges and claims over special status. Today, their bungalows estimated to be in crores is at risk.

A resolution removing the special status of the state under Article 370 was approved by the Rajya Sabha on Monday with Home Minister Amit Shah saying the constitutional provision was the "root cause of terrorism" in the state and the Modi government was committed to making the state the most progressive in the country.

As soon as the gate will open and our people will be out, we will fight, we will go to the court. We are not gun-runners, grenade-throwers, stone-throwers, we believe in peaceful resolutions. They want to murder us. My son (Omar Abdullah) is in jail," said Abdullah.

Mehbooba's request for an all-party meet comes in the backdrop of the Centre's decision to deploy additional forces in the Valley.
