Mirwaiz met the injured students and inquired about the treatment being provided to them besides praying to Almighty for their speedy inquiry.

In a statement, Mirwaiz strongly condemned the thrashing and brutal assault on Kashmiri students studying in a University at Chhattisgarh state of India in which four students were injured , stating that Kashmiri students studying in various colleges and universities of Indian states are constantly being targeted and beaten by hate mongers which is highly condemnable.

Mirwaiz said that the vicious propaganda against Kashmiri’s projected by certain sections of Indian electronic media and the distorted image of Kashmir and the discourse around its dispute has made the lives of Kashmiri staying in various Indian states all the more vulnerable to attacks by goons.

Mirwaiz said that it was the utmost responsibility of the heads of various Indian states where Kashmiri students businessmen are stationed to ensure their safety and security. Meanwhile, on the directions of APHC chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, a delegation led by Sufi Mushtaq Ahmed visited the Bone and Joints hospital Barzulla to inquire about the students who were injured in the Pulwama explosion.
