Being Kashmiri Muslim is now a crime


Srinagar—Hitting out at Ashoke Pandit, a BJP supporter, for demanding interrogation of JNU Students Union vice president Shehla Rashid Shora, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Saturday said that now being a Kashmiri Muslim is a “crime” enough to warrant questioning. “Now being a Kashmiri Muslim is crime enough to warrant interrogation. BTW (by the way) it’s Shehla not Sheila but what the hell!” Omar wrote on Twitter.
The National Conference working president, who has opposed harassment of Kashmiri students in JNU in the backdrop of the alleged anti-national sloganeering on the campus on February 9, was responding to a series of tweets by film maker Ashoke Pandit.
“Shehla Rashid #VicePresident #JNU who is a #KashmiriMuslim should be interrogated. She had also opposed #BabaRamdev in #JNU,” Pandit tweeted.—GK
