‘Diktats against students at educational institutions won’t be tolerated’
SRINAGAR: Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) Syeda Aasiya Andrabi on Wednesday said Jammu and Kashmir isn’t part of India and “anyone forcing people here to acknowledge the India’s illegal occupation as genuine will have to face the wrath of general masses”.
Aasiya said the statement “has come in the backdrop of diktat issued by the principal of Government Higher Secondary, Amira Kadal, Shakeela Wani, who has threatened the students and the staff members that their names will be forwarded to the police if they indulge in any sort of anti-India activities”.
“For the past one and a half week, there is a lot of disturbance at our educational institutions as the occupying forces are trying to take control of these institutions and our brave students are objecting to this sinister move,” Andrabi said in a statement.
She said the students of higher secondary schools, colleges and universities are with the resistance movement and that government was resorting to “all illegal” moves to control them. “In this regard, these puppets, who have sold their souls to India, tried to enter the Degree College, Pulwama to arrest some innocent students. The defiance by the students there triggered massive anti-India movement across Kashmir. The result of that police action was that the upright principal of the college was removed from his post and now different tactics are being employed to quell the anti-India sentiment among the students at various degree colleges,” she said.
The DeM chief alleged, “In frustration, the government has now started buying the loyalties of heads of some educational institutions and have asked them to use all means to crush the anti-India and pro-resistance sentiment among that students.
“In this connection, the principal of Amira Kadal Higher Secondary school, Shakeela Wani, who not only has a dubious career but belongs to a pro-India family, has taken the lead and not only beat up the students for participating in the pro-resistance protests but has threatened to dismiss them from school if they participate in such programmes,” she said.
Andrabi said: “Today, through reliable sources, we have received the information that this woman has assembled the staff and students in the morning and said that she will register the names of all the students and the staff members, who will participate in the pro-resistance programmes, and will then forward them to police for further action,” she said.
She alleged that the staff members and students found involved in anti-India activities have been threatened of dismissal from services and rusticated from the institute respectively. “Students are feeling sacred after this diktat. I want to tell Miss Wani that this is not India but Jammu and Kashmir and that praising India here is like inviting trouble for your own self,” she said.
“Miss Wani should understand that this is an educational institute and not Assembly or Parliament where she will indulge in politics. The students of our educational institutions are mature enough to understand what is right or wrong for them. They don’t need lessons on politics,” Andrabi added.
