Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 28: As some politicians tried to politicize the issue of the arrest of seven students under UAPA to exploit the sentiments of people, student groups warned them against reaping the political benefits of this issue.
“J&K politicians should refrain from politicizing the issue of the seven Kashmiri students booked under UAPA and shouldn't attempt to settle scores. These students are neither activists nor pursue any agenda or advocate a particular ideology”, the J&K Students Association posted on social media while giving a strict warning to politicians.
“They are young students from poor families and UAPA charges should be withdrawn as this punishment could ruin their futures and they should be given a chance to be involved and bring them into the mainstream arena”, the student organization said.
“Linking the UAPA issue of these students with a supposed prevailing thought in Kashmir is entirely inappropriate. J&K politicians including former Chief Ministers, former ministers, and former MLAs should refrain from making such connections & Shd compassionately appeal to drop the UAPA charges”, student group said.
J&K Students Association urged Home Minister Amit Shah and Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to drop UAPA charges on students Kashmiri students, seeking mercy on humanitarian grounds.
National Convenor of Association Nasir Khuehami said that seven Kashmiri students have been arrested after celebrating India's World Cup loss and booked under UAPA.
He urged Home Minister Amit Shah and Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor to drop UAPA charges on the students, as it is an unacceptably harsh punishment that could ruin their futures.
“The UAPA charges will have serious consequences on the academic and future career of the students and should be immediately withdrawn. It may have serious repercussions both in the long term and short term”, he added.
National spokesperson of the Association Aadil Bhat said that it has been reported that these students abused and threatened other students supporting India, warning them to be silent or face shooting.
“We condemn this act and behavior in the harshest of words. There is no place for such behavior in a civilized society. The issue should be resolved amicably, rather than taking it to Court and Police station. We are not justifying their act, but such harsh charges will result in their career assassination”, he added.
