Prof.Bhim Singh assured full cooperation with the lawyers associations from Jammu and Kashmir to Kanyakumari in their legal and constitutional fight against the oppresses of human rights in any part of India. He said that in Jammu and Kashmir the lawyers’ community has been fighting for justice and equality for more than five decades from the streets to the Supreme Court seeking protection of the fundamental rights. He regretted that fundamental rights in Jammu and Kashmir he belongs to have not been conferred in spite of the fact that President of India has abrogated 65 years old outdated Ordinance depriving the lawyers and others from sharing the fruits of fundamental rights. He assured that the leadership of the Supreme Court Bar Association has taken very strong and meaningful decision expressing full cooperation and support to the lawyers of NCT of Delhi and particularly those who suffered from bullet injuries and lathi blows the other day in Tees Hazari Courts, Delhi, the capital of Mahabharata.
