The protest was led by former MLA Habba Kadal and Party’s state Women’s wing President Advocate Shameema Firdous. Scores of NC women workers were carrying placards and shouting slogans against the arrest of three Kashmiri students.

Speaking on the occasion, Shameema Firdous said, “We are protesting in favour of those students who had been slapped with FIRs for allegedly celebrating Pakistan win. They are now saying that they won’t even be given passports now and they would not be able to continue their studies.”

She said that while Amit Shah talked about talking and engaging youth and students during his visit to the valley, those studying in Agra and Aligarh were attacked violently and slapped with cases of sedition.

“Even the college authorities have clarified that these students did not shout anything seditious. They are only trying to push Kashmiri students against the wall and victimizing them,” she said.

They demanded that these cases should be withdrawn immediately.
