Taking note of the NEET decision by the Supreme Court of India regarding the undergraduate medical and dental entrance exams of Jammu & Kashmir state, chairperson Hurriyat Conference (g)  Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday said that treating the state of Jammu & Kashmir at par with other states of India does not full fill the parameters of justice and the said court decision has neglected the special status and sensitivity of this state, a statement of the amalgam issued here read.

He said that the state of Jammu & Kashmir has no resemblance with other states of India and this state has its own constitution and law which have been completely ignored in the said court decision.

“The honourable judges of the supreme court of India are not unaware about the fact that Jammu & Kashmir is not any UP or Bihar like state of India but its status is totally different and unique. The final solution with regarding to the future of this state is yet pending and this region is in no way any legal part of India.”

The octogenarian leader said that the policy makers of India are actually employing different resources and machineries to dilute the disputed nature and special status of Jammu Kashmir and they are working on a set plan in this regard. “The NEET decision of the Indian supreme court should be understood in that perspective. The said court verdict looks a politically motivated decision which is directly linked to the status of Jammu & Kashmir.”

He said that the Indian Supreme Court decision regarding the NEET also exposes the statement of Mehbooba Mufti that “the future of Jammu & Kashmir is secure with India”.

“The Indian Union wants to harm the interests of the Kashmiri nation in every possible way and this time they have targeted the education and professional career of our children,” he said, adding, “We will hold consultation with our legal experts with regarding to the Supreme Court decision for NEET and will evolve every such method which will secure the education career and the special status of the Jammu & Kashmir state.”

I agree to the Terms and Conditions of Kashmir Life


  1. Its very unfortunate that, every process looked into a prism of political dilution. When 15 % seats of every state own colleges are reserved for all india quota (it include students of J&K), where students of J&K studying in Bangalore, Chennai (southern states, which has most medical colleges in any region, most of them funded by respective states), but that consider to be a right of J&T, but when following NEET became politics (it is hypocrisy) . My state Tamil nadu which affected more than any other state of india, much higher than J&K (TN has more medical colleges in india), accepted the judgement/ opposing legally in the court. Our tamil medium students affected a lot in the middle of admission. But calling NEET as a process of diluting J&K is just a politically motivated statement, its dilutes the real problem of J&K. NEET will helps J&K students to get admission across india in both govt and private medical schools, increases the horizon of oppertunity
