The Hurriyat forum spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that Kashmiri students and businessmen were living under an insecure environment in various states of India.
He said: “In the past, many incidents of attacks on Kashmiri students took place which forced many students to return back to Kashmir. It was the primary responsibility of governments of various states of India to ensure safety and security of all the students.”
He said: “These tactics are being done aimed to build pressure on the people to break their resolve for which they have rendered numerous sacrifices. However, the fact remains people are committed to the sacred movement and are continuously offering priceless sacrifices to take the movement to its conclusion.”
The spokesman also condemned the continued house detention of the Hurriyat forum Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and arrest of Mukhtar Ahmad Waza who was lodged in Police Station, Mattan.
