Invoking UAPA Against Students Will Alienate Them Further: Mehbooba Mufti

SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday hit out at government of India for booking students under anti-terror law.

Taking to microblogging site Twitter, Mehbooba Mufti wrote: “HMs Mann ki baat with Kashmiri youth started with slapping UAPA against  medical students for celebrating Pakistan’s win.Instead of trying to ascertain why educated youth choose to identify with Pakistan, GOI resorting to vindictive actions. Such steps will alienate them further.”

Her remarks came after Jammu and Kashmir police has registered an FIR against the medical students for celebrating Pakistan win.

She had earlier in a tweet said, “Why such anger against Kashmiris for celebrating Pak’s win? Some are even chanting murderous slogans- desh ke gadaaron ko goli maaro/calling to shoot traitors. One has not forgotten how many celebrated by distributing sweets when J&K was dismembered & stripped of special status.”
