A day after six Kashmiri students were attacked by locals in Mewar University of Rajsthan state, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Friday tweeted that he has asked all states to ensure the safety of Kashmiri students anywhere in India.
“I appeal to all states, they should ensure safety of all Kashmiris anywhere in country. They are also equal citizens of India,” he tweeted.
In a series of tweets pertaining to the issue of attacks on Kashmiri students studying in different parts of India, he urged, “Kashmiris are a part of our family.”
In another tweet Singh wrote all states have been directed to take strict against those who are indulging in perpetrating any sort of violence against Kashmiri students. “Rajyon ko kaha hai ki koi bhi Kashmiri bacchon ke saath kahin badsalooqi karta hai uspe kadi karyavahi ki jaaye.”
Pertinently Delhi based newspapers have reported about hoardings that have come up on Delhi-Dehradun road asking Kashmiris to leave the state of Uttar Pradesh. “The Uttar Pradesh Nav Nirman Sena is allegedly behind the move,” reported Indian Express.
