SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Students Association, here today urged Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to drop sedition charges on three Kashmiri students, seeking mercy on humanitarian grounds.
In a statement National spokesperson of Association, Nasir Khuehami urged Chief Minister to intervene in withdrawing sedition case and FIR against students and said college authorities must revoke their suspension.
He urged the Kashmiri students to focus on their education. Sedition charge against students is an unacceptably harsh punishment that will ruin their futures and will further alienate them. These charges will have serious consequences on academic and future career of the students and should be immediately withdrawn.
He said that, it may have serious repercussions both in the long term and short term.
Khuehami demanded punishment and strict action against the elements involved in roughing up of students in court premises in Agra. Attacking students is a worrying factor for the students and parents. We demanded punishment to the elements involved in roughing up of the students.
Khuehami said that these incidents may increase the sense of insecurity and anxiety among Kashmiri students studying outside as well as among their parents and relatives in Kashmir. We urge Uttar Pradesh Government to ensure adequate Security arrangements for their safety, he added.
He said we requested all Kashmiri Students studying outside in Indian states to please be patient, silent, and behave wisely and sensibly and save your career and not get provoked on sentiment.
He requested Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to personally look into the matter on humanitarian grounds and take immediate steps to revoke sedition charges and FIR against them, so that their future are preserved.
