The decision was taken by trio in a crucial meeting held Geelani’s Hyderpora resideence. Supreme Court will hear the case on Article 35 A on August 6 in New Delhi. Announcing the decision, Mirwaiz took to his twitter handle and wrote: all Kashmiris will resist and fight this serious assault together. August 5 and August 6 will be observed as a complete strike against the politically motivated move.” On July 27, Mirwaiz during his Friday sermon at the historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar had warned of a massive agitation if New Delhi tampered with the J&K’s state subject law guaranteed by Article 35 A.

He had claimed that the real agenda behind the petitions filed against the constitutional provision was no secret and it was actually "a bid to merge Kashmir with union of India”.
