Protect Kashmiri students in Nagpur: Rafi Mir to Shinde
Srinagar, Jan 16: PDP Leader and MLA Rafi Ahmed Mir today appealed the Union Home Minister (Sushil Kumar Shinde) to intervene and talk to Maharashtra government for protection of Kashmiri students in Nagpur district. In a statement here he expressed deep sorrow over the way 150 odd Kashmiri students were made to flee from Nagpur.
He said that "its ironical the way our students are assaulted all over the country and government is silent on their protection". He also added that government had the duty to act and protect its youth from harassment.
Mir was aggrieved that the students were without any support and police assistance. He said that such incidents have created a sense of insecurity amongst the parents of those studying outside the state and also discouraged the students to pursue their studies.
Mir assured the Nagpur Kashmiri students that the matter of their security would be taken up with the government and asked them to stay calm.
