Students stage protests, demand passing of TMU Bill
Srinagar, Sep 29: Hundreds of students from Jamiat Ahle-Hadith (JAH) affiliated schools of the Valley Thursday held a protest rally at Lal Chowk demanding passing of the Bill by the Legislative Council for establishing Transworld Muslim University, during the ongoing Assembly session.
Shouting pro-TMU slogans, the students took out the protest rally from TRC ground to Lal Chowk. Later they stage a sit-in at Press Enclave. The students expressed resentment over the “inordinate delay’ by the Legislative Council in passing the resolution.
“By delaying passing of the Bill, the Government is denying us of Right to Education which has been guaranteed by
the constitution. Denial of establishment of the University has direct bearing on our future education”, the students said.
The Bill has been already passing by the Legislative Assembly last year. The students accused some MLCs of delaying passing of the Bill in Legislative Council. “If the Government doesn’t pass the proposed Bill, we will be forced to launch a mass agitation,” the students threatened.
Later, the JAH members addressed the students. The General Secretary of JAH, Abdul Rehman Bhat set October 5 as a deadline for passing the Bill. “If the Government continues with its discriminative policies, we shall be left with no option but to launch a full fledged protest programme. We are hopeful that the government will take the issue seriously and pass the bill during the ongoing Assembly session,” Bhat said.
“It is unfortunate that some communal forces are hell bent upon hurting sentiments of people in the Muslim majority state. We will not act as mute spectators. Any move to scuttle the establishment of the University will have serious repercussions,” he said.
