Srinagar: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai on Tuesday condemned the sedition charges against four Kashmiri female students in Jaipur, and said that “no corner of India is safe for Kashmiris”.
Expressing deep concern over the arrests and thrashing of Kashmiri student, Sehrai in a statement said: “They are being harassed everywhere in all possible ways. These actions reflect the communal and prejudiced thinking and mind-set which has no moral justification. If the harassment of Kashmiri students does not stop, it will have a strong reaction in Kashmir.”
“The sedition charges should immediately be withdrawn,” he demanded.
Criticising the administration for failing to stop continued attacks and harassment of Kashmiri students studying outside Jammu and Kashmir, Sehrai said that the state authorities have only made lip-services so far.
“Such vindictive and hatred politics for electoral gains is shameful,” he stated.
Kashmiri students have been targeted by “extremist groups continuously at various educational institutions across India which has forced many Kashmiri students to leave their studies midway,” TeH chief said and added Kashmiris have a history of being non-communal, humane and harmonious and we as a nation have always protected this humanity and harmony.
Sehrai also expressed grief over the demise of Abdul Majeed Fazli, the statement said.
