Sedition charges will ruin lives and career of Kashmiri students, says JRL

The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Tuesday condemned the charge-sheet against seven Kashmiri students in a sedition case, saying it will ruin their career.
A Delhi court Tuesday fixed January 19 for consideration of charge sheet against former Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) president and seven Kashmiri students in the 2016 JNU sedition case.
JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik in a statement demanded the withdrawal of all the charges.
The leaders said: “The students only participated in the programme organized by JNU students union in 2016 to condemn the undemocratic act of Government of India”.
“…to book the students in 2019 clearly exhibit the vote bank politics of the ruling dispensation,” JRL said. “To harass the Kashmiri students pursuing studies outside Jammu and Kashmir is not a new practice.”
The leaders further said that “one the one hand worst kind of atrocities are being unleashed on the people of Kashmir and on other the carrier of Kashmiri students outside the state is being ruined on one pretext or the other”.
The JRL appealed to human rights organisations to take serious notice of “these practices carried out to ruin the carriers of the Kashmiri students”. KR
