SRINAGAR: Expressing concern over the developments at National Institute of Technology (NIT) here, Hurriyat Conference (G) on Thursday objected to the demands of hoisting the Indian tricolour and deployment of paramilitary force at the campus.
“The students must go through the historical background of Jammu and Kashmir and understand the severity of the state. It is not like Uttar Pradesh or Bihar, but a disputed territory that India is ruling the state with its military power,” the conglomerate said in a statement issued here.
Hurriyat (G) said the people of the state have been struggling for the last 69 years against this “forcible occupation to get our right to self-determination”.
It asked the non-local students to know the “sensitivity status” of Jammu and Kashmir and “not demand hoisting of tricolour in the premises of the institution”.
“It is not acceptable for the people of the state in anyway. The continuous disturbance can make the atmosphere bad and it will affect the carrier of the students,” he said.
The conglomerate said hoisting Indian flag in campus would make the campus the students “more vulnerable”. And, it added, replacing police with CRPF would create a misunderstanding between the local and non-local students.
