Pro-freedom camp slams the move
Srinagar: Taking strong note of the recent expulsion of the students from one of the varsity of Meerut, Kashmir’s separatist leadership stated that the move has ‘punctured’ the tall claims of democracy and secularism.
“The people of Kashmir continue to remain under suppression in every nook and the corner of the corner of the world,” said Huriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani, adding that the expulsion of the students vindicates that the people of Kashmir are not safe within or outside Kashmir.
The senior separatist leader stated further that the tall claims of safety for the people of Kashmir are all ‘hollow’ in nature and that they are continuously being subjected to political vengeance in every nook and corner of India. “The state government in actual is doing nothing but is acting as a mute spectator.”
Huriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq told KNS over phone that the expulsion of the students by University authorities in Meerut is a reflection of communal mindset and racial bias. “We have learnt that some 150 students have been expelled from the varsity only because they expressed their emotions during a cricket match. The act must be condemned at all levels.”
Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) while talking to KNS said that the cricket or any other sports activity is a global event and that everyone is free to express emotions for any team but the attitude of the varsity authorities was ‘pathetic’. “If this remains the mindset of people who run educational institutes in India- You can imagine the conditions of other Kashmiris who are earning their livelihood in different Indian states.” (KNS)
