Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Monday expressed concern over the harassment of innocent Kashmir students studying in Aligarh Muslim University and other educational institutions in Punjab and other states.
In a statement issued here from party headquarters Nawa e Subah, General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar sought strict action against those found involved in intimidating innocent students hailing from the state of Jammu and Kashmir. “Harassment and intimidation of Kashmiri students will not only affect their studies but will inevitably make them susceptible to violent attacks across the country,” he said.
Sagar said that hundreds of our students are currently studying at various universities throughout the country to secure their future. “Such unfortunate incidents where students are being harassed on one pretext or the other are happening at a time when the incumbent governor administration is making tall claims about the propensity to engage with the youth of Kashmir,” he said.
Sagar urged the governor administration to make safety and security of the students of Jammu and Kashmir studying in various universities across the country a top priority.
General Secretary also implored upon the incumbent governor administration to take up the matter with the respective state governments where the students are being targeted and harassed.
