SRINAGAR Peoples Conference senior leader Imran Reza Ansari on Tuesday said that targeting and intimidation of Kashmiris amounted to the worst assault on their psyche and that the government must ensure safety and security of Kashmiri employees, students and families living outside the state.
Imran Reza Ansari, at a function organized to welcome more than 200 PDP workers from Athwajan, strongly condemned the targeting and ill treatment of Kashmiris in some parts of the country and urged the state governments to make security of Kashmiris a priority.
Targeting and harassment of Kashmirs studying, working and living across the country is the worst assault on the psyche and dignity of lakhs of Kashmiris studying, working and living across the country. Ostracising and harassing students from Kashmir is unacceptable and reprehensible. Such attacks will leave behind tales of fear which will further distance the Kashmiri youth from Indian mainstream, Imran said adding that state governments are duty bound to make adequate arrangements to ensure safety and security of Kashmiris living in their states.
Urging the Governor administration to act tough against anti-national elements responsible for intimidation of Kashmiri students, employees & families in various Jammu, Imran said that Miscreants involved in acts of targeting and arson of property of Kashmiris must be dealt with sternly as per the law. The administration must not allow a fringe to vitiate communal harmony in Jammu.
