New Delhi, Feb 17: Amid reports of security threats to students from Jammu and Kashmir, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday said that every citizen from J&K has a right to live free from fear to reside in any part of the country.
In a tweet put out on Sunday, the parliamentarian said: “Every Kashmiri has a right to live free from fear, to reside in any part of India. These xenophobic attacks against Kashmiris are deplorable & must be condemned. We cannot let our rule of law be replaced by a rule of mobs.”
Owaisi’s statement comes following the reports of some security concerns about students studying outside Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier on Friday, it was reported that members of Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad thrashed some students in Dehradun. Following this, the students locked themselves inside their hostel rooms and rented houses.
