The veteran leader denounced the remarks of Indian Home Minister, Sushil Kumar Shinde that Kashmir was an integral part of India.
Senior APHC leader, Shabbir Ahmad Shah in his statement in Srinagar said that the Kashmiris were fighting for their legitimate right to self-determination and India would never be able to force them into submission through use of brute force.

The President of High Court Bar Association of occupied Kashmir, Zafar Qureshi in a media interview said that the Indian authorities had replaced the draconian laws, POTA and TADA with the Unlawful Activities Act, which was the copy of POTA and TADA.
