Hundreds of students including females of Government Degree College Tral Wednesday staged a protest demonstration in Tral town of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district against the killings of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
The students assembled at the main campus and marched towards bus stand Tral while shouting slogans in favour of Rohingya Muslims. They also demanded justice for them.
However, the protest ended peacefully after which normal class work started in the college.
Similar protests were held across Kashmir yesterday against the Rohingya Muslim persecution.
The violence in Myanmar has forced nearly 125,000 Rohingya Muslims to flee to Bangladesh.
Pertinently, condemning the killings and persecution of Rohingya Muslims, Hurriyat (M) chairman and chief cleric of Kashmir, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Tuesday said that September 8 will be observed as “Solidarity Day” with the Rohingya victims.
Taking strong notice of the persecution of Rohingya Muslims, the United Nations Chief while condemning the violence has called for the Muslims of Rakhine state to be given either nationality or legal status.
Nearly 90,000 Muslim Rohingya have fled the country’s violence since August, as protests across Asia mount on leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, to do more to protect the minority.
