Safety for Kashmiris must be ensured in all states : Ranjanth Singh

A group of students of Mewar University at Chittorgrah had gone to buy groceries where locals taunted them as stone-pelters after enquiring their name and home state which resulted in a scuffle.

Earlier in the day, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh condemned the attack and appealed to all state governments to ensure the safety of Kashmiris living in different parts of the country. I appeal to all the chief ministers to ensure security of Kashmiris in their states.

The Home Minister said he had heard that "in one or two parts of India, people misbehaved with Kashmiri youth".

On Thursday, a right-wing group called Uttar Pradesh Nav Nirman Sena put up billboards against "Kashmiris who pelt stones" at jawans, reported Hindustan Times.

"In the coming months, security forces are likely to step up action against people working covertly for separatists", the reports added. I appeal to all the youth to consider them as their brother.

He also informed that he had already asked the home ministry to immediately circulate an advisory to all states in this regard.

The incident took place around 5 pm on Wednesday when 11 students, all living in the varsity hostel, had stepped out of the campus.

As per a statement, the party has expressed serious concern over the alleged harassment faced by the Kashmiri students studying outside the state, and demanded swift action into this incident to punish the guilty. In Meerut, hoardings have surfaced in which Kashmiri students have been asked to get out of Uttar Pradesh.
