Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industry has questioned the government’s silence over the harassment of Kashmiri students in Jammu engineering colleges.
“The keen interest taken by Dr. Nirmal Singh, the Deputy Chief Minister, Jammu & Kashmir Government in regard to sorting out the problem of NIT Srinagar and at the same time adopting a quiet attitude viz-a-viz harassment caused to Kashmiri students at Jammu professional Institutes is baffling and if the things are allowed to unfold in the manner reported in the press, it will have repercussion felt all over causing great harm to the peace and economy of the state as a whole,” KCCI president Mushtaq Ahmad Wani said.
The KCCI President expressed his grave concern about the intimidation and harassment caused to the Kashmir students in various Engineering Institutions situated in Jammu division of the State as reported by a section of press in news papers.
The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industry (Inc) feels it to be its bounden moral duty to seek peace to be maintained and the disruptive forces kept at bay and therefore urge the State Government not only to ensure peace and safety of students in the educational Institutions within the State, but appropriate measures be taken to safeguard the life, and academic future of kashmiri students studying in Rajasthan which is otherwise in peril, after the university of Rajasthan has suspended them from further studies in the University.
The Chamber seeks immediate deputation of a high level team to different Professional Institutions / colleges and Universities enquire and assess the untoward situation, faced by the kashmiri students now and then reported by print media, so that safety of their life and leisure with studies is reassured by the Government.
Let Mehbooba Mufti not act as mouth piece of Rajnath Singh: AIP
Protests against harassing Kashmiris outside state
Srinagar, April 8
Dozens of AIP workers today staged a sit-in at Press Colony Srinagar urging for the safety of all those students who are now being harassed, humiliated and tortured on hourly basis in different states of India.
The protesters assembled near Press Colony Srinagar this afternoon and started raising strong slogans seeking an end to the ill treatment and life threats being given to Kashmiri students outside.
Protesters accused central govt. and national political parties of creating a vicious atmosphere against Kashmiris in every part of India and trying to over react over NIT issue. It is strange that every Indian politician is adding to the provocation over NIT issue and deeming it an act of so called patriotism.
Protesters appealed Mehbooba Mufti not to act as mouth piece of Rajnath Singh and rise to the occasion and ensure safety of Kashmiri students outside state.
Protesters also asked state govt. to wake up against the adulterated foods and other edible commodities in the state and establish high equipped laboratories to stop the same.
The Protesters hailed court direction over supply of sub standard milk in the market and asked govt. not to allow these angles of death to play with the lives of common man.
