J-K students' body asks Kashmiri students not to give anti-national statements

ANI  |  General News 

Jammu and Kashmir Students Association spokesperson Nasir Khuehami on Tuesday asked Kashmiri students not to give any statements against the country adding that the situation in the state is normal and they should return now.

"There were some students who had made anti-comments and used unparliamentary language against the country. We hope they don't use such language against the country anymore," Khuehami said.

"After Pulwama attack, a situation of fear and harassment was spread against Kashmiri students across Uttarakhand. We had rescued them," he said.

Khuehami said that the situation is improving in the state and they are bringing back the students. "It is almost one month. The situation is improving with the support of local police and administration. There is no threat to the lives of Kashmiri students anywhere in Uttarakhand. I appeal to them to return to their institutions and resume their studies."

"We spoke to parents of the students and told them to send them back so that they can resume their studies. As many as 400 students have come in last four days," he said.

Criticising the Jammu and Kashmir government and other political leaders of Kashmir, Khuehami said, "We got no reply from the government of Jammu and Kashmir and leaders like Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and Engineer Rashid, etc. These leaders don't have time to help and resolve the problems of Kashmiri students but they have time to tweet on other issues."

After Pulwama attack on CRPF personnel on February 14, Kashmir students were reportedly being attacked in the state.

Taking cognizance of the matter, the Supreme Court had directed the chief secretaries and the Directors General of Police of all state and Union territories to take strong and necessary measures to prevent attacks on Kashmiris and other minorities in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack.
