Some Hurriyat leaders sell MBBS, engineering seats in Pakistan colleges meant for kin of Kashmiri martyrs

Some Hurriyat leaders sell MBBS, engineering seats in Pakistan colleges meant for kin of Kashmiri martyrs

SRINAGAR: Since the early 1990s, Pakistan government has been allotting about 100 seats annually in MBBS and other professional courses in its institutions for Kashmiri students whose kin have been martyred or those who have been associated with the resistance movement. Do the deserving candidates get their due? Resistance leaders say they do but a significant share of these seats is also either “sold” to those who do not meet the criteria.
Apart from MBBS course, which is the major chunk of the quota, admissions are given to Kashmiri students in engineering, BTech, dentistry and veterinary sciences.
Hurriyat Conference (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar said the undivided Hurriyat Conference had set up a body exclusively for processing such admissions. No leader of any constituent organisation of the Hurriyat had a say in the admissions, he added.

Children of police officers and bureaucrats were recommended by none other than Hurriyat leaders. I think hardly five to ten per cent of the seats have gone to the kin of martyrs

“Initially, the quota reached the deserving candidates, but that did not last long. If there were five seats, there were hundreds of claimants. The standard of the selection process declined,” Akbar said.
He said that Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani has never had anything to do with the admissions ever since he formed his own resistance group, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat.
“These days there is no fair distribution. I have heard that many lower-rung leaders who are allotted one or two seats every year might have taken small donations from people,” said another Hurriyat leader on condition of anonymity.
He added that in the absence of a system, there is ample scope for nepotism and corruption.
“Ideally the resistance leaders should hunt for the deserving students than wait for them to come because not many people are aware of the quotas,” he said.
This year, a Pakistani official dealing with these admissions said, 70 Kashmiri students have been provided admissions to MBBS and engineering courses. Some of these admissions are funded through scholarships provided by Pakistan government and ‘Azad Kashmir’ government, he said.
“Preference is given to the kin of martyrs,” he said.
However, a senior Hurriyat leader told Kashmir Reader that “it is common knowledge that there is rampant nepotism in these admissions”.
“Children of police officers and bureaucrats were recommended by none other than Hurriyat leaders. I think hardly five to ten per cent of the seats have gone to the kin of martyrs,” he said.
A veteran Hurriyat leader, however, said that by and large only the meritorious and deserving students are recommended by the resistance leaders.
“The letter of recommendation mentions the contribution of the kin of the student. Students’ academic merit is the key criterion. Contribution towards the freedom struggle only adds to the eligibility of a candidate. Leaders’ recommendations only ease visa process and other formalities,” he said.
Resistance leaders, he said, are sometimes faced with a dilemma of recommending a less bright student whose kin have contributed towards the struggle over an academically brilliant student whose family may not have contributed as much.
Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah are among also recommends the students.
An official in one of the Hurriyats said that in the past, lower rung leaders would often bring the parents of non-deserving candidates to the top leadership and seek recommendations for their wards.
“Once the recommendation letter was signed by the top leader, the lower rung leader would then seek money from the parents. Some of them got exposed and over the time the top leadership became cautious. These days, I would say, the process is by and large fair,” he added.

      I swear, it was Khan Sopori,who tried his best for the admission of the kid of a Martyr. He visited many times to his residence, at the eleventh hour, found his passport was no more ready, resulting in emergency another student from many Martyrs affected family was replaced.Let me say this truth openly & loudly that neither the seat was sold nor the sincere honest dedicated huryat leader Ghulam Muhammad Khan took any benefit for this one seat. To blame anyone without any proof or witness is a big spiritual crime.I cant claim am saint but only by the grace of Allah tried my best to say & write Truth…served mission in both sides via my own finance…sold my heredity assets. Always preferred others…..Respected Bashir Ahmad Baig…upload your email address or whatsup No…can update all claims with proof. Our family for the first time lodged FIR against forces…were offered much rupees..but preferred mission…saved US professor & his son…who offered huge dollars..but told him be thankful for my Faith..which teaches to serve humanity…have married with a deserving lady at Mosque…but managed marriage of few deserving with golden sets…I mean…no greed not influenced by materialism…one follower of Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori…Sopori from 1956 is with contributions & sacrifices..who sold his land for release when was arrested with Shaheed Maqbool Bhat sb…whose shops were burnt in 1990. whose house is seized….living simple life. so worried when found his name in your comment…may be someone have misguided you…as few mingle all few to hide their own crimes ..defame truth…Allah knows well…..Still if you any doubt can erase your misunderstanding if any…Stay blessed…

    The author has mentioned very good points but he is missing some points that these all students are from Kashmir whether they have paid or not.Author describes hand of hurriyat leaders in accepting the donations from parents of tudents who seek admn in pakistan but other than recommendation letter for visa there is no role of hurriyat leaders in these admms.
    No doubt if author is exposing corruption done by hurriyat leadrers thats wat we should appreciate but there is no evidence either in past or present which can prove this news of author authentic

    If we all will only initiate to say TRUTH…we can make our GOALS visible for here & there.Before few days I have decided to speak less & to listen more. But in few accusations when few misguided on the base of assumptions… who knowing nothing pretend to be intellectuals/journalists..when those traitors pretend to be leaders..who enjoying lives as routine pretend to be fighters..when those who.taking benefits from all side pretend to be victims…are involved undermine those, whose life is destroyed..who after sacrificing luxuries are with sufferings & problems…who are with sacrifices/contributions ..who are sincere dedicated with their mission…. Within all societies/sections there are good & bad people,so must avoid to mingling all & to blame their fourms.. I am much hurt when few because of the reasons>>>

    · To get things off one’s chest especially in case of hatred.

    · To join in with a group of friends.

    · To show our superiority and put others down.

    · To act funny and joke.

    · Out of jealousy or anger.

    · Out of pity for someone.

    · To relieve boredom.

    · To impress others.

    · Out of arrogance….
    are engaged to undermine others on assumptions via saying, updating News or status for social media.Under spiritual terms before uploading or reporting…we must keep two principles in mind..1.Without any solid proof about any News event,especially in connection of such News,which can affect others honor..No2. we must avoid to mingle all. As if few layers or scholars or journalists… are doing wrong never never means, we must blame their forums.
    Strict Prohibition of Backbiting..
    Allah prohibits backbiting in the Quran by comparing to the disgusting act of cannibalism: “O you who believe! Avoid much (negative) assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.” (Quran 49:12)
    Often times we backbite and gossip about others without thinking much of it. We treat it lightly, however, Allah reminds us that in fact it may be a serious sin in the sight of Allah! The Quran says: “When you were propagating it with your tongues, and uttering with your mouths that whereof you had no knowledge, you counted it a little thing, while with Allah it was very great.” (Quran 24:15)
    We need to be careful of letting our tongues slip. Prophet Muhammad said: “When man wakes up in the morning each day, all his body parts warn his tongue saying: ‘Fear Allah with regards to us, for we are under your mercy; if you are upright, we will be upright and if you are corrupt, we will be corrupt.’” (Tirmidhi)
    The reward of controlling our tongue is Paradise. Prophet Muhammad said: “He who protects his tongue from unlawful utterances and his private parts from illegal sexual intercourse, I shall guarantee him entrance into Paradise.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Saheeh Muslim)

    Mr Bashir Ahmad Baigh you have mention my name Abdul Hameed Lone,though neither i m in position to recommend nor i have recommended any candidate our org have recommended one candidate from martyrs family and letter has been issued by our party after verification. I as rep pleaded the same case .How u dared to blame me which is spiritually and morally crime so lets bow before Allah.

    That is true, Mr. Geelani & Mr. Umar Farooq don’t even recommend for visa whereas the the intension of Umar Farooq’s office bearers indicate clearly what is written above.

    These bloody liars have been eating flesh of kashmiris since 90s. For example , see one so called hurriyat leaders Bilal gani lone, he is seen at the front runner of freedom struggle when his own brother is part of RSS govt here. Terribly corrupt.

  13. Mubashir   April 21, 2016 at 7:59 pm

    i fear you’re right , if you’re right i hope Hurriyat will correct their mistakes and will learn from the past..

  14. Ershad Malik   April 24, 2016 at 5:06 am

    I know a students who is the the son or conservator of Forests got admissions in the first batches on Martyr’s kin scheme or educational programme.. How come could he get the admission with out recommendation of a senior leader, Any way a probe is must, ,

  15. ashiq   May 25, 2016 at 6:48 pm

    Surprised to see comments as when I was in 12th in 1993 as approached to prof gani at his jawahar nagar residence.he refused and didint even meet for a while.only Allah’s save us these people are just doing there routine business.if they were really helpful let them come out from there luxrious banglows and then start crying about the tehreek.

  16. tanveer   June 24, 2016 at 6:38 pm

    It’s very disgusting that one of the hurriyat leader as saying that sometimes they are in dilemma whether to recommend a bright student with a family contributed less in the ongoing struggle or an average student whose family had lost thr kins….but I would like to mention here that these seats should be strictly given to the kins of the martyrs

  17. G.A.Naikoo   June 27, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    Nobody is at fault, it is we Kashmiri who talk of freedom in one hand and vote in other hand, it is we who voted Sajad Gani Lone. Who was talking about freedom, byheart he is RSS agent. We people became Ikhwans and butchered innocent Kashmiri; it is we who inform police for mere of some money. We Kashmiri say Allah in Kashmir & when we reach even Jammu we say Ram Ram. It is our inherent property which we cannot change. We are basically sinful so our leaders who guide us are much sinful. We are repenting the sins of Sheikh Abdullah whom people do not yet understand. For mere of some power he sold Kashmir. Huryat leaders also do something like this because it is our inherency. So Nobody to be blamed.

  18. Comp   July 11, 2016 at 10:10 am

    There should be a full probe identifying all those who went to pak for MBBS and other degrees and then find how and who send them.

    Mirwaiz Umar mostly recommends the kids of his relatives.

    I fail to understand why Enginer Mahmood is giving explination. I don’t know who made him enginer. If he is enginer then I should work in NASA. He is the most illiterate and non sense person in APHC. What he writes is rotton but still claims an intellectual. It is true he received money on a forged letter. He made tempering in the letter of Khan sopori. He expolites Khan Sopri who is a through gentel man. He got two admission for two girls who siblings and daughters of Executive Enginer. He is corrupt and still claims a champion of movement

    This is my first time to visit kashmir reader. I never ever trust any news paper of kashmir and everyone knows why but since few days, I felt something different about this newspaper – The contents which no other newspaper publishes like the one above and various more. Keep up the good, honset and truthful work

  22. Sunil   August 15, 2016 at 11:46 am

    MBBS of Pakistan, where doctors cant diagnose or even perform a single surgery. PM Nawaz Sharif and Retd General Pervez Musharraf never get medical checkup in Pakistan, as they know, the doctors of Pakistan are no less than Quacks, that is why PM Nawaz Sharif goes to London, UK for medical checkup and had his heart surgery. Pervez Musharraf escaped Pakistan judiciary by giving a false medical certificate to get medical checkup in Dubai. Many Pakistanis patients prefer to come to Indian hospitals to get treated rather than in Pakistan.

    Is there any Engineering college in Pakistan where they impart a career building engineering education of international standard in english language ?Or the usual TALIBAN fireworks and IED making and AK47 maintanence for the one way ticket to the heaven to enjoy 72 virgins ?

  25. DrTahir   October 3, 2016 at 8:48 pm

    Why is this fact not being highlighted that Pakistan is doing such a big favor to Kashmiris. I knew nothing about it. Yes Hurriyat should develop transparency in such selections but at the same time it elevated my respect for Pakistan to another level. Thanks Pakistan

  26. Kamran   October 4, 2016 at 8:02 pm

    As a Pakistan, tt doesn’t matter much as long as the students getting admissions are Kashmiris as most of the Kashmiris are supportive of their legitimate freedom struggle against Indian occupation.

    Pakistani authorities make admissions in various courses exclusively on basis of recommendation letters from Hurriyat leaders but the weightage of the letter depends on the credibility of the particular Hurriyat leader. Low rung leaders have of course no credibility there.

  29. Dr Sajad Ahmad Malik   January 26, 2017 at 8:41 am

    I am Dr Sajad doing DM in Endocrinology SKIMS. I know a person who has been from rich family and his family was not related to freedom movement. He managed to do MBBS in Pakistan through this quota. I request to all those respected Huriyat leaders who recommend this qouta, kindly visit the kins of the matyr’ s and help them by restricting this qouta to those only affected adversly by freedom movement as it is your moral duty and most of the people are not knowing about this. I myself came to know only recently about this qouta. We oppressed people of Kashmir will be very thankful to you.

    it is 100 % true i have seen the people who are in jk police and have lot of black money and grab seats by recommendations of huriyat leaders may be they may also compensate for favour.
    why hurriyat is not making public about the mbbs seat quota for kashmiris in pakistan.
    it means they are all corrupted.

  33. Bilal   May 21, 2017 at 2:39 pm

    I don’t know why they sell the seats to kins of policemen.I know a few girls hailing from rich n uneffected families have been recommended to MBBS of them is a cousin sis of an SHO
