Srinagar, January 01, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA), an amalgam of various trade organizations has expressed concern over the harassment of Kashmiri students and workers outside the territory.
The KEA Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Khan in a statement in Srinagar said, “KEA has taken a very serious note of the hate and prejudice against the Kashmiri students of Ganga Institute of Technology, Jajar in (the Indian state of) Haryana.
The students are reportedly facing harassment at the hands of the management and fellow students especially in the hostel. The plight described by these students in their communications to the media is shocking.”
“Though the mails etc., are addressed to the Kashmir Civil Society and the authorities, yet, KEA feels that every single Kashmiri, irrespective of his affiliation to any school of thought, should take serious note of this report and focus attention on ways to ensure security and safety of these students”, he added. “Reports emanating from last few years have shown increasing incidents of hate and dislike against the Kashmiris especially in the States governed by BJP”, he added.
