SRINAGAR: Kashmir’s prominent educational organisation Anjuman-e-Nusrat-ul-Islam on Wednesday expressed deep concern over the “deteriorating situation” in Kashmir.
The organisation also and condemned the arrest of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and his detention at the Cheshmashahi sub-jail.
Condemning the use of force on peaceful protest demonstrations and marches the Anjuman, in a statement issued here, prayed for those killed and injured by the government forces. The organisation stressed that Kashmiri students frequently have to bear “irreparable losses” due to “the situation of uncertainty created as a result of such killings and atrocities. “They (students) also had to be at the receiving end in 2008 and 2010,” it said, adding that these problems could only be solved by “resolving the long-pending Kashmir issue once and for all”.
“Until Kashmir issue is not resolved keeping the wishes and aspirations of the people in mind, the situation of uncertainty would continue to exist and dark clouds would continue to hover, creating problems for the educational institutions and students,” it said.
The Anjuman also appealed the teachers, professors, scholars, intellectuals, and educated people around the world to come forward and play their role in helping to resolve the Kashmir issue by “pressurising government of India”.
