“India is a big country, a home to one billion people but with a very small heart, Kashmiri people have been enchained in Indian imperialism, we are facing this situation of atrocity here every day,” said Syed Ali Gilani while talking to media.

On Sunday, Swami Vivekanand Subharti University in Meerut, Uttar Pardesh suspended 67 students of the Kashmiri origin – their crime was that they supported Pakistani cricket team in Asia Cup match against India.

According to reports coming in from Indian media, the Indian state police have registered a case of sedition against these 67 students. Reports say the students have been asked to vacate the university hostel and go back to their homes in Indian-held Kashmir.

Pakistan’s Foreign Office also criticized the Indian move and offered that these students can take admissions in Pakistani universities.

“Hundreds of thousands of people, including women, children and old men celebrated Pakistan’s victory against India in Jammu and Kashmir valley, which angered India that it expelled Kashmiri youths from their university… The people of Kashmir are living under Indian forced occupation, you must realize now how we are spending our days and nights but we are optimistic that we will win the freedom one day,” he said.

He said that Pakistan has vowed to support the expelled Kashmiri youths, but despite the fact India will not issue visa to them for Pakistan. “Pakistan should continue its efforts for the people of Kashmir who are battling Indian bigotry and New Delhi’s anti-Pakistan madness.

He said the Kashmir issue could be resolved if 57 Muslim countries of the world used their influence and pressed India for violation of human rights.

The Indian move also drew condemnation from its own power corridors. Omar Abdullah, Chief Minister of the Indian-held Jammu and Kashmir, Uttar Pardesh government in his twitter message.

“Sedition charge against Kashmiri students is an unacceptably harsh punishment that will ruin their futures & will further alienate them,” Omar Abdullah said. “The sad fact is that some of these students are recipients of the PM scholarship for Kashmiris. Perhaps..they need to introspect,” he added.

Abdullah in his tweets further said that what the students did may be ‘misguided’ but it was not certainly ‘illegal.
