Srinagar, April 13: The Kashmir valley’s one of the prominent educational institutes, Islamic University while calling for an immediate end to growing human rights violations in Kashmir said violence against the student community of the valley is at stake.
In backdrop of recent killings and bloodshed in south Kashmir, the Islamic University Faculty Association (IUFA) Friday has called for an immediate end to growing human rights violations in Kashmir and also called for a ban on the use of pellet guns.
IUFA also called for an immediate stop of force and violence against the student community of the valley, whose lives are put at risk by muzzling their freedom of expression by not allowing peaceful protests and by blockage of all channels of communication. Teachers are also concerned about the overall impact on education.
IUFA also demanded dispensation of justice and severe punishment to the culprits of Shabir Ahmad Mango, a college lecturer, who was killed on the night of August 17, 2016 during police custody. The forum expressed dismay and disappointment over the delay of justice.
IUFA called for an immediate initiation of talks with all stake holders so that the human tragedy in the length and breadth of the valley and elsewhere is not perpetuated infinitely. (KNB)
