It’s quite disheartening when someone supports the wrong which reflects him or her as anti-nationalist.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti always grabs the attention for being against supported three Kashmiri students of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) who were charged with sedition for trying to hold a prayer meeting for research scholar-turned-terrorist Mannan Wani.
Former Chief Minister even called the terrorist as “victim of relentless violence in Kashmir”.
Mannan Wani was a research scholar in Geology at the Aligarh Muslim University. He was found missing from the University and later observed that he joined the terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen in January through social media. The 27-year-old terrorist died in an encounter in Handwara in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district on Thursday.
People’s Democratic Party made a shocking statement through her tweeter handle. She asked the central government to look into the matter and get the case dismissed which was filed against Kashmiri students. She even said that respective state governments outside Jammu and Kashmir should not alienate the Kashmiri students and should be sensitive to the situation. She even urged the AMU authorities to withdraw the suspension of Kashmiri students.
She backed the student saying that it would be a travesty to punish the student for remembering their former colleague.
The UP police arrested three Kashmiri students who tried to conduct prayer and even raised “anti-India” slogans.
Some students even organised a march to protest against the action taken against the three students from the Sir Syed Gate in the university to the office of the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Tariq Mansoor.
The protestors even said that if sedition charges were not dropped then more then 1200 Kashmiri students would leave the campus after presenting their case during an alumni meet on Wednesday. They even handed over a memorandum which remarked that they are in a state of constant fear.
AMU registrar Abdul Hamid said “We have made it clear that no innocent person is going to be harassed. Any punitive action would be taken only after we receive the report of a three-member enquiry committee headed by AMU proctor Prof Mohsin Khan.”
