Kashmir University Students Union (KUSU) has alleged that ‘educational institutions of Kashmir are being used to cultivate Indianism.’
In a statement KUSU said, “One of the important tactics used by India to further its occupation of Kashmir is the use of educational institutions to cultivate Indianism.”
“The Kashmir University has been one of the premier testing grounds for India’s imperialist policies. The foray of students groups in the varsity backed by pro-occupation political groups over the last few years is aimed at further choking the voice of resistance against Indian occupation in KU,” the statement said.
It added that National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), after getting a stone cold response in KU last time, has again started its activities with active support of the varsity administration. However, this time NSUI has expanded its activities to colleges, North and south campuses of KU and other universities of Kashmir also.
The statement said that Student representatives from Islamic university, Awantipora met with KUSU in this regard and expressed their concerned about the same.
The statement said that KUSU and student representatives from Islamic university have resolved to chalk out a joint strategy against advances of ‘India backed student groups’.
It alleged that NSUI activities in KU are ably supported by administration with Vice-Chancellor, Talat Ahmad.
According to the statement although university administration has apparently banned all political activities in the campus, but in reality the ban does not extend beyond KUSU.
“Student groups such as NSUI, NCSU, PCSU backed by pro-occupation parties are given a free hand to cultivate Indianism in the campus by luring students through jobs and other incentives,” the statement said.
KUSU has condemned the activities of ‘pro-occupation’ student groups in KU as well as administration’s ‘active support’ for them.
