“They want to murder us, we are ready, my chest is ready, fire here, not into my back,” 81-year-old Abdullah said in an emotional outburst.
SRINAGAR/NEW DELHI: Comparing the revocation of Article 370 by the Centre as “body being carved”, National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday said they will fight and go to court against the Union government's decision.

In his first remarks since ending of state's special status, Abdullah said a “dictatorial” authority has been invoked and not a “democratic” one.

Talking to TV channels in Srinagar, Abdullah said,“as soon as the gates will open, our people will be out, we will fight, we'll go to the court. We're not gunrunners, grenade-throwers, stone-throwers, we believe in peaceful resolution of things.”

“They want to murder us, we are ready, my chest is ready, fire here, not into my back,” 81-year-old Abdullah said in an emotional outburst.

He also contested home minister's assertion in Parliament that he was neither under detention nor arrest and was at his home out of his own will. The former J&K CM said there was abig padlock on his door and he had to “force himself” to come out and speak to the media.
