Cllr Hussain termed the Act 74 as an instrument of slavery for the nation and stated that Gilgit- Baltistan was integral part of Jammu Kashmir so Pakistan should not try to unilaterally declare it as its province. He further said that such a move by the Pakistan would not only violate the United Nation resolutions on Jammu Kashmir but also will give India an excuse to do the same for Ladakh and Jammu.  

Branch President Mahmood Faiz on this occasion urged Pakistangovernment not to back stab the Kashmiri movement but respect the integrity of Jammu Kashmir State. He demanded the revocation of Act 74 and other Acts which further divide Jammu Kashmir under PakistanControl & warned that such anti-movement activism by the Pakistan Government would back fire and JKLF along with its allies will be forced to launch a worldwide movement across the world against this.
