Srinagar, Apr 15 : Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba Jammu and Kashmir (IJT) Saturday condemned the ‘brutal assault’ on students of Government Degree College Pulwama by forces personnel and described it as an “act of terrorism.”
In a statement issued to KNS, IJT while demanding stringent action against the forces personnel involved in the assault has expressed solidarity with the injured students.
As per media reports, at least fifty-four students, including girls, were injured after forces personnel resorted to teargas and pellet shelling on students outside Degree College Pulwama.
IJT has expressed serious concern over the pattern under which students and educational institutions are being targeted in Kashmir. “It seems part of a well planned conspiracy to vitiate atmosphere of educational institutions in Jammu and Kashmir to prevent our young generations from seeking education and thereby empowerment,” the IJT said.
“Certain vested interests seem hell-bent on ruining the career of Kashmiri students and push them towards violence. This is very unfortunate. IJT appeals to the conscious sections of the Kashmiri society to seriously look into this matter so that the future of our students as well of our nations is saved from being ruined,” the statement added.
