Governor raises suspension of J&K students with Minister

first_imgJ&K Governor Satya Pal Malik on Tuesday raised the suspension of Kashmiri students studying at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) with Union Minister for Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar. At least three students have been suspended by the AMU authorities after they allegedly offered funeral prayers for Manan Wani, an AMU scholar-turned militant commander, after he was killed in an operation in Kashmir last week. The students deny the allegations. Over 1,200 Kashmiri students at AMU have threatened mass migration “if the cases against the three Kashmiri students are not withdrawn.”A Raj Bhavan spokesman said Mr. Malik sought the intervention of the Union Minister “to ensure smooth studies of the Kashmiri students at AMU.” The spokesman said the Governor also spoke to AMU Vice-Chancellor Prof. Tariq Mansoor.“Mr. Malik urged Mr. Javadekar and Prof. Tariq to ensure that the issue is resolved at the earliest and the Kashmiri students are allowed to continue their studies in a safe, secure and well-disposed academic environment,” said the spokesman.last_img
