Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, on Thursday condemned the sedition charges that have been levied on the Kashmiri students who had been expelled from a private university in Uttar Pradesh (UP).
Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, on Thursday questioned the UP government for charging sedition charges against Kashmiri students of a university in the state, who cheered for Pakistan during a cricket match on Saturday. However, Omar said that what Kashmiri students did was wrong and misguided. Omar termed the UP government’s move “unacceptable”.
“Sedition charge against Kashmiri students is an unacceptably harsh punishment that will ruin their futures & will further alienate them”, tweeted Omar. “I believe what the students did was wrong & misguided but they certainly didn’t deserve to have charges of sedition slapped against them”, the CM said on the social media network. Omar also stated that he will talk to the UP government regarding this issue and ask them to withdraw the charges.
