Welcomed Court Verdict, Saying have Complete faith on Judiciary
Srinagar, Feb 20: J&K Students Association here on today, Condemned the Remark of Honorary Secretary of Sri Ram Sena, Siddalinga Swami’s remark on Kashmiri Students that tounges of 3 Kashmiri studnts should be chopped off and announced a reward of Rs 3 lakh for a person who will chop off their tongues, demanding his immediate arrest. In a statement Spokesperson of Association, Nasir Khuehami urged State Government to arrest him immediately. He said that, we condemned it in harshest of words and whatever he said is not acceptable. He also urged the government to Lodge FIR against him for issuing Provocative Statements and indulging in Anti Student Activities. He said that, Such remarks only fuel alienation among the Kashmiri Students and add to the trust deficit.
He said that, this is utterly inhumane statement and calls for three immediate steps, Firstly Government swift action and quick arrest by law enforcement agencies of these barbaric elements, secondly often meetings in different states and UTs between the Kashmiri students and civil society of that place so that misgivings are erased and thirdly such groups who want to make these heinous threats fashion a ban against them. We believe that Governments across the country would take confidence building measures to restore sense of safety and security among Kashmiris living in different parts of the country, he said. The Kashmiris residing in different parts should also act with sense of responsibility and avoid things, Khuehami added.
He said that association has welcomed that people across the country have condemned in harsh terms the illogical illegal and erroneous statement made by the right wing leader which is likely to cause fear and threat among the masses in general and students community in particular. The tourism minister has sent out the clear signal that the state machinery is not only not required to tread softly around these hooligans who take the law into their own hands but is, in fact, obligated to act against them. We have Complete faith on all the three branches of state (Judiciary, Executive and Legislative) and we welcomed the decision of Honourable High Court.
He urged Chief Minister B.S.Yediyurappa to provide a safe and peaceful atmosphere for students of the state and take against those found in intimidating students from Kashmir Valley. Khuehami observed that the ugly episode has given rise to sense of fear and anxiety among Kashmiri students overall.
