Troops kill one more youth in Uri, toll reaches to 5
Srinagar, September 26 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, a large number of Kashmir University students staged a protest rally at the varsity campus in Srinagar, today, against the summoning of a research scholar, Aala Fazili, by the New Delhi-based National Investigation Agency for questioning.
The students raising ‘Go India Go Back’ slogans marched through the campus and shouted anti-India and anti-NIA slogans. They warned India of widespread protests against the summoning of university scholars by the NIA. The students termed the move as a clear frustration of India, and said that NIA was being used as a tool to strangulate the genuine voice of the people in Kashmir. They said that the student community was at the forefront of freedom movement against India’s illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir and New Delhi was trying to intimidate them through such tactics. The students demanded an immediate end to the character assassination of the teachers.
Similar protest was held by the scientific fraternity of Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology at Shalimar Campus in Srinagar against the summoning of Dr Naseem Gilani, who is a teacher at the Faculty of Forestry in the university.
