MEERUTH: Government of Indian state Uttar Pardesh has taken back a controversial treason case against Indian Kashmiri students for celebrating Pakistan’s victory against India in an Asia Cup cricket match.
According to Indian media reports, the state government has taken this decision considering the gravity od situation as the move invited severe criticism from Human Right activists and sensitive segments of society.
Kashmiri leaders like Syed Ali Gilani, Yaseen Malik and Muslim Indian leaders like Omar Abdullah criticised the decision.
While Pakistan’s Foreign Office welcomed these Kashmiri students to join Pakistani universities.
Almost 130 students were rusticated from an Indian University for celebrating Pakistan’s victory in an Asia Cup cricket match over India.
Hindu extremist groups could not swallow such celebration from students of disputed territory between Pakistan and India and attacked the Kashmiri students’ hostel to take revenge.
University administration went ahead to expel all 130 students and charged them with a penalty of 5000 each while announcing that no Kashmiri student will be granted admission in the university this year.
