Kashmiri scholar at BITS leaves after threats

Srinagar: A day after Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh called for ensuring the safety of Kashmiris students across India, a Kashmiri studying at the reputed Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani received threats to his life, as soon as he woke up this morning. Hashim Sofi, a research fellow at Department of Science and Technology, Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) staying at Maliya Bhavan hostel found threats written on the door of his room and on his clothes as well.
“As I woke up early morning last day, I couldn’t believe my eyes for what was written on the face of my door at Maliya Bhavan Hostel BITS Pilani. To add to the surprise, I later on found my clothes have also been pasted with some heartbreaking quotes. I wonder why such animosity for the Kashmiris,” Sofi wrote in a Facebook post.

    It’s unfortunate Hashim, we have to carry the burden of dispute on our shoulders. As an individual we are not important, its the negative narattive created by media & social media be it in kashmir against india & against kashmir in india. A great human tragedy has started to unfold. Europe has learned it by losing millions of lives 75 years ago we will also learn it by losing a few crores. Its just matter of time..
