Srinagar: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday asked all states to ensure the safety of Kashmiris living in different parts of the country, media reports said.
Condemning the alleged incidents of harassment of Kashmiris, the home minister said they are like any other Indian and an advisory is being sent by the home ministry to all states to ensure the safety and security of people from the Valley.
“I have come to know that there were a few incidents of misbehaviour towards Kashmiris in some places. I appeal to all chief ministers to ensure the security of Kashmiris,” he told reporters in Delhi.
Singh also stated that there will be proper investigation if Kashmiris are mistreated in any part of the country.
Singh’s statement came in the wake of reports alleging that Kashmiri students in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh were being threatened after the latest incidents of protests in the valley.
