‘New Delhi should slap sedition charges against whole Kashmir’
Srinagar: Castigating the authorities over slapping charges against the Kashmiri students for supporting one particular team during the cricket match, Huriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Friday asked the authorities to file sedition charges against all the people of Kashmir as for expressing their sentiments since 1947.
According to the reports received by KNS, Mirwaiz after delivering Friday sermon at Kashmir’s grand mosque stated that the fact has been established now that the people of Kashmir are not safe in any state in India. He also appealed OIC- an amalgam of 58 Muslim countries that they must reserve seats for the Kashmiri youth for the higher studies.
Mirwaiz also appealed Kashmir’s business community to come forward for setting up of educational institutes here so that Kashmir’s young generation could pursue their higher studies here.
Commenting over the suspension of 67 Kashmiri students from Meerut, Mirwaiz stated that the people of Kashmir have been expressing their feelings since 1947 and that during the Cricket Match, the people of Kashmir even support any cricket team of the world which plays against India. “These are our feelings and if sedition charges have been slapped against the students of Meerut- the same should be slapped against the whole Kashmiri nation.”
Castigating the state authorities for deliberately denying permission of setting up of private universities and colleges in Kashmir, Mirwaiz stated that the state is hell-bent upon denying the basic right like education to the people of Kashmir. “We submitted the proposal of upgrading Islamia School into a college but our files are gathering dust in the government departments. See the plight with the trans-world Muslim university- the state government here has turned blind eye towards these issues and continues to work under the diktats of New Delhi. ” (KNS)
