New Delhi, Apr 13: The students from Jammu and Kashmir studying at Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi organized a protest against the rape and murder of eight-year-old child Aasifa in Kathua.
Students while holding placards, in which some of them were read “Aasifa Not India’s Daughter,” “Aasifa Not Nirbhaya.” The protest led by the students from Jammu and Kashmir stated that ‘The purpose of the protest is to make it clear that we do not accept the national media’s, celebrities’ and civil society’s sudden outrage against the rape.
The students who participated in the protest were unanimous in their rejection of the Indian media and civil society’s attempt to erase the specificity of the rape and murder of the 8-year-old child. The students questioned the Left-liberal solidarity for its attempts to see the incident as an outcome of a certain political force in power and stressed that all shades of political opinion have normalized the practice of rape and murder in Jammu and Kashmir for decades now.
This protest was in continuation with the earlier protest held against the rape and murder of Aasifa on January 20, 2018.
