Our career and security at stake
SRINAGAR: Stating that they are constrained to study in Kashmir valley alone, the group of 67 students who were suspended for cheering Pakistani team in recently held Asia Cup match, Thursday stated that they feel insecure and threatened.
The students said, they are scared that the communal forces might attack them once they return to varsity in Meerut.
The students maintained further they feel dejected that chief minster Omar Abdullah has done nothing for them and that their security and future was at stake.
The recent attack on Kashmiri students at Delhi has mounted our fears and shows how insecure youth of Kashmir are outside of valley.
Irony is this that the VC of our university stated that our suspension has not been revoked and the same will be done once the probe into the episode is complete. Contrary to this for gaining the political mileage NC leader deputed to sort out the issue by the government says he has resolved everything and now students can go to Meerut.
The students observed further that they continuously are receiving the reports that the communal forces in the university are planning something fishy against us and that we are concerned now for our career. The students maintained that if other institutions could accommodate them here then they would prefer to study in their own homeland.
