Reacting to the statement by Inspector General of Police (IGP) Jammu on April 29 that Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba Jammu and Kashmir was involved in radicalizing youth in taking up the arms, the spokesman of the organization in handout issued to media said that that they have no links with any militant person or organization and their all activities are peaceful and within the ambit of law of the land.
The spokesman in a statement issued to media said that none of their activities are unconstitutional or detrimental to peace or law and order. Hundreds of students associated with IJT are and remain law abiding citizens and never indulge in any subversive activity.
“Most importantly, we feel it pertinent to mention that IJT is a non-political students’ organization and stays away even from any sort of political activity. All our activities focus on imparting moral values to students and guiding them in education and achieving excellence in professional careers so as to make them productive members of society,” the spokesman said.
The person mentioned by the police is not a member of IJT and has nothing to do with our organization. He might have attended any of our public meetings somewhere in Kashmir in the past, like hundreds of students do, but he has never officially been part of our organization anytime in the past, the spokesman added
As per police records, the person in question is studying outside the State and IJT does not operate anywhere outside the State of Jammu and Kashmir. Our activities are restricted within the boundaries of the State of Jammu and Kashmir, the spokesman clarified.
Earlier, the Jammu range Inspector General of Police Manish Sinha claimed that Jamiat-ul-Tulba (IJT) was involved in radicalizing youth from non-criminal background into taking up arms.
