Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT) Jammu and Kashmir Tuesday expressed serious concern over the selective profiling of students from Jammu and Kashmir by Police in Kolkata.
Kolkata Police have asked educational institutions to submit details of students from Jammu and Kashmir to it for “onward transmission to Union Home Ministry”.
“This selective profiling merits strong condemnation from student community of Jammu and Kashmir as it in-stills a sense of fear and insecurity among them and impedes their zeal and enthusiasm for higher education,” said IJT president, Umar Sultan, in a statement this evening.
“As representatives of students of Jammu and Kashmir, IJT J&K demands that this racial profiling should stop immediately and any such vindictive move should be strictly discouraged in future,” Umar said, “It is unfortunate that Kashmiri students are living under intense fear psychosis across India due to harassment by various state agencies as well as non-State actors.”
The all Muslim student body further said, “Government of India (GoI) should ensure safety of students from Jammu and Kashmir and any move to harm them will have serious repercussions. People at helm of affairs in Jammu and Kashmir should also take the issue seriously and ensure every student from Jammu and Kashmir lives peacefully and in safety.”
