NC seeks withdrawal of FIRs against students

Srinagar, October 30 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (NC) has expressed dismay over slapping of sedition charges on Kashmiri students following the India-Pakistan cricket match during the ongoing T20 World Cup.

A statement of NC issued here said that calling the slapping of sedition charges on Kashmiri students studying in J&K and Agra on their reported cheering for the neighbouring country on its victory in a cricket match “ridiculous”, NC spokesman Imran Nabi Dar said that the measures reek of utter misuse of the law.

“There wasn’t any call of violence or public disorder in the purported videos of the students celebrating the victory. One may agree with them or not. But dragging the entire thing into the political arena is outlandish. Why only Kashmiri students are subjected to such unwarranted exceptionalizm,” he asked.
