Srinagar—Expressing solidarity with JNU students and teachers, Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir (JeI) put across its condemnation over the callous attitude of New-Delhi.
In a statement to media, spokesperson of Jama’at Advocate Zahid Ali said freedom of expression is a fundamental right of every citizen in a democratic country and no regime can violate this right, but unfortunately India who is claiming the champion of democracy, is leading in violating the rights of its own citizens which depicts India and real democracy are poles apart.
Peaceful protests are being pacified by bullets and mortars in Kashmir but today in India when its own citizens raised voice against the atrocities committed by forces in Kashmir, it is considered as a big crime. The peaceful program organized by the students of JNU and then representing it anti-national and seditious by media and communal elements proved that intolerance has prevailed in India.
“Speaking on behalf of oppressed is considered a gigantic crime in India and that is why students and teachers have been booked” he added. Encouraging the efforts of students and teachers of JNU and other universities from India, spokesperson said now universities from international level which are more than 400, are supporting the voice of Kashmiri’s and we hope it will further expand.—NNI
