Srinagar: On June 18, a group of retired Indian judges and jurists would raise the national flag of India at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk under the direction of Dr Adish Aggarwala, President of the International Council of Jurists.

Dr Aggarwala made the announcement on Wednesday in New Delhi. He explained that the intention of the gesture was to show the international community that Jammu and Kashmir has returned to normalcy as a result of the Narendra Modi government’s decision to repeal Article 370 of the Constitution.

“The abrogation of Article 370, from Jammu and Kashmir, was not only wise but has also taken the wind out of Pakistan’s sails on the Kashmir issue despite Pakistan’s never-ending nefarious designs,” said Dr Aggarwala, who is also the President of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA).

The delegation, led by Dr Aggarwala, is scheduled to commence its Jammu and Kashmir visit and local engagements from June 16 to 19. During this visit, it will visit public places including schools, colleges and hospitals. Dr Aggarwala will also address teachers and students of Law Department of the University of Jammu and Dogra Law College and members of J&K High Court Bar Association in Jammu on June 16.

The delegation will also meet the Lt Governor, Chief Justice of the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir, Director-General of Police, Lt-General Upendra Dwivedi, Northern Army Commander, Udhampur; GoC, Corps Commander 15, Srinagar and AoC, Air Force, Srinagar.
