JKSA appeal to LG to revoke advisory about stone pelters
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Students Association (JKSA) on Wednesday appealed to Lt Governor Manoj Sinha to revoke the recent circular about not providing passport and employment clearance to youth allegedly involved in stone pelting and other law and order cases.
“We demand amnesty for students, allegedly involved in law and order cases,” JKSA spokesperson Nasir Khuehami said in a statement.
“We requested Mr Sinha to rescind the recent circular so as not to create any impediments for the youth who were allegedly involved in stone pelting incidents as many of them are now studying and employed in different fields, living a peaceful life now,” he said.
He said there is a need not create any hassles in the path of thousands of Kashmiri youth who are now in Jobs and study fields but were in past allegedly involved in such activities. “We need to welcome them into mainstream rather than push them into further alienation,” he said.
He requested Mr Sinha not to bar those youth who are now in different study fields and left these( stone pelting) activities. We need to appreciate their shift rather than punish them.
As the constitutional values of the country appreciate positive reformation, it is dire need that the recent circular of not providing government jobs or passport clearance to youth should be revoked.
Khuehami said that for betterment of Kashmir, youth and student community are its pillars and we have to value them. There seems to be no wisdom in denying passport and jobs to those who have shun the path of such activities for leading a peaceful life, he added.
