Chairman Hurriyat (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Sunday while calling for the cessation of harassment of Kashmiri students at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) said was ‘offering funeral prayers a crime in India now.’
“Strongly denounce the authoritarian & vindictive arrest of Hurriyat leader Masroor Abbas Ansari as the state’s election drama has flopped! The crackdown on youth &activists as they are arrested right left and centre &slapping draconian PSA on them reflects that the iron fist policy will continue, On the other hand Sedition charges slapped on Kashmiri students as they are dismissed for offering nimaz e jinaza of their senior shaheed Manan Wani by AMU ! Is offering nimaz e jinaza a crime in India now? Stop harassment of Kashmiri students!” Mirwaiz wrote on his twitter handle.
