SRINAGAR: Strongly condemning the harassment of Kashmiri students at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), the Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) on Monday said Kashmiri youth are being targeted on every front in and outside the state.
Registering sedition charges against Kashmiri students at AMU and issuing show cause notices clearly exhibits the “Indian imperialistic approach” towards Kashmir and Kashmiri people, a spokesperson of JKDFP said in a statement.
Is offering prayers for the dead a crime, the spokesperson asked and strongly denounced the arrest of youth in north and south Kashmir areas and slapping PSA on several of them.
The spokesperson also expressed deep concern over the continuous incarceration of party chief Shabir Shah despite his falling health.
“Shabir Shah has been suffering a lot in a 6X8 ft cell of Tihar jail and despite repeated court directions he is not being provided suitable medical treatment for his serious ailments. Shabir Shah is being revenged for is bold stance vis-a-vis Kashmir issue and advocating (for) people’s right to self determination effectively,” he said.
