Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti on Monday asked New Delhi to intervene and help in withdrawing the cases against Kashmiri Aligarh University students.
The former CM said that pushing the youth to the wall is counter-productive and also appealed the respective state governments outside Jammu and Kashmir to be sensitive towards the situation and prevent further alienation of the people of Kashmir.
Mehbooba said that punishing the students for remembering their former colleague is travesty of justice.
“Pushing youth to the wall will be counter productive.Centre must intervene in withdrawing cases against students & AMU authorities must revoke their suspension .The respective State governments outside JK should be sensitive to the situation & prevent further alienation. It will be a travesty to punish them for remembering their former colleague who was a victim of relentless violence in Kashmir,” Mehbooba tweeted.
