PDP demands release of arrested Kashmiri students in UP, stages protest in Srinagar

SRINAGAR: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Saturday held a protest in Srinagar, demanding the release of Kashmiri students who were detained in Uttar Pradesh (UP) for celebrating Pakistan’s cricket team victory over India in T20 World Cup 2021.

PDP youth coordinator Najumus Saqib said that Jammu and Kashmir are in a threatening environment and instead of making relations with Kashmiri youth cordial, “youth who are going out of state for studying are being detained for a celebration.”

“As per the statement of Prime Minister Dil ki Doori and Delhi ki Doori, is this way to go for it by detaining Kashmiri youth,” Saqib said. “As per administration, Jammu and Kashmir are under a peaceful environment, so why can’t we feel that peace anywhere. Civilians are killed, soldiers are killed in Poonch. Is this they call peace,” he said.

“We demand the urgent release of Kashmiri students detained in UP and a legal inquiry against the people who beat Kashmiri students in Punjab,” protesters said—(KNO)
