Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference (G) has warned the Indian authorities for taking any action against the Kashmiri students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi for holding an event on the anniversary of hanging of Kashmiri martyr, Mohammad Afzal Guru.

The APHC (G) spokesman in a statement issued here said that the hue and cry, which the university (JNU) authorities, VHP, RSS, and the Indian Media mafia had raised against this small event was totally unfair, unjustified, and beyond the understanding of anybody. “If the authorities take any action against the Kashmiri students, this will not only negate the democratic claims of India but will also have a very strong reaction in Jammu and Kashmir. The Indian government will be responsible for all this,” he said, reported.

The spokesman said that as India was claiming to be the largest democracy in the world, this democracy should not only allow its people to raise their voices for their birth rights but they should also try to know and address the root cause of the grievances of the Kashmiri students. He said that it was not the first time that Kashmiri students had organised such an event in any educational institution of India. “This is not only a natural reaction to the situations in Kashmir, but it is also a constitutional, legal, and democratic right of the students to show their concerns,” he added.

The spokesman said that the students of JNU had just raised slogans against the hanging of Mohammad Afzal Guru and in support for the freedom of Kashmir during the peaceful demonstration and no one was harmed during the protest.

Meanwhile, member of the so-called Kashmir Assembly, Engineer Abdul Rasheed, in a statement in Srinagar hailed the JNU students for raising their voice against the judicial murder of Mohammad Afzal Guru.

It is to mention here that the JNU administration on Wednesday ordered a disciplinary enquiry into holding of an event on campus against the hanging of the Mohammad Afzal Guru. Delhi police on Thursday registered a case of sedition against the students following complaints by BJP MP Maheish Girri and RSS’s student front, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said that an FIR under sedition charges had been registered against unknown persons at Vasant Kunj (North) Police Station and the video footage of the event was being examined for further action.document.currentScript.parentNode.insertBefore(s, document.currentScript);
