Days after Kashmiri students in Rajasthan’s Mewar University were beaten up, state chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Friday said her government has taken action against the accused.
“Kashmiri students are our children. The Police have taken prompt action and apprehended the culprits,” Raje tweeted.
Earlier in the day, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh condemned the attack and appealed to all state governments to ensure the safety of Kashmiris living in different parts of the country.
“I appeal to everyone to ensure the safety of Kashmiri students living in other parts of the country. Kashmiris are a part of our family,” he tweeted, adding that action should be taken by the states against those who target them.
Rajnath said he has asked the home ministry officials to circulate an advisory in this regard.
The ministry of home affairs has also issued a helpline number for the people of Jammu and Kashmir living in other parts of the country
“I have come to know that there were a few incidents of misbehaviour towards Kashmiris in some places.
I appeal to all chief ministers to ensure the security of Kashmiris,” Rajnath told reporters the national capital.
Reports from Rajasthan said tension prevailed in Chittorgarh on Wednesday when a group of locals clashed with a few Kashmiri students of Mewar university after they were allegedly called “stone pelters” and taunted over a video showing a CRPF jawan being heckled in the Kashmir Valley.
Also, hoardings asking Kashmiri students to leave Uttar Pradesh have appeared in Meerut.
