Kashmir’s All Parties Hurriyet Conference veteran leader Syed Ali Gilani on Thursday condemned Indian move to book Kashmiri youths for treason for their jubilation over Pakistan’s victory in Pak-India cricket match, a private news channel reported.
“India is a big country, a home to one billion people but with a very small heart, Kashmiri people have been chained in Indian imperialism, we are facing this situation of atrocity here every day,” said Syed Ali Gilani while talking to a private news channel.
On Sunday, SwamiVivekanandSubhartiUniversity in Meerut, Uttar Pardesh suspended 67 students of the Kashmiri origin – their crime was that they supported Pakistani cricket team in Asia Cup match against India.
According to reports coming in from Indian media, the Indian state police have registered a case of sedition against these 67 students. Reports say the students have been asked to vacate the university hostel and go back to their homes in Indian-held Kashmir.
Pakistan’s Foreign Office also criticised the Indian move and offered that these students can take admissions in Pakistani universities.
