    “students from Jammu and Kashmir in excitement raised pro-state slogans while the rival teams confronted them and tried to assault some of the students. … ”

    The problem is that J&K’s polities have put such a large burden of autonomy, freedom, self rule, plebiscite etc. in federalism that the youth of valley now think that what is their narrative is the narrative of entire India about Indian Federalism? This is due to the fact that politicians of valley in Indian Federalism have swallowed much more then what they can now chew? This resulted in more Autonomy and freedom to the people of valley. This is also due to the difference in provisions of local laws in India and J&K (read difference in Ranbir and Indian Penal Codes).

    In such excitement as explained in article, these young ones forget oneness of India and pitch themselves against entire nation, which is incorrect and troublesome for themselves. As a solution, it was perceived that youth from Valley should have more interaction with main land and exchanges of views. The youth exchange program was directed with that intent. However, of late it is observed that instead of exchanging the views, the youth from valley try to assert their same rights in other parts of India which may not be a crime in valley but a serious offence up to treason in other parts of India? It is also damaging for public order in other parts of India. The valley youth are required to know that the citizenry of other parts of India have lessor fundamental rights … 🙂

    Every citizen of J&K is required to understand this fact especially if they think that they should continue to enjoy autonomy which is available to them under Indian Constitution. Whether they are in J&K or in other parts of India.?
