Seven students of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, occupied Jammu and Kashmir, were arrested under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) for raising pro-Pakistan slogans on India’s defeat against Australia in ODI World Cup final.
According to ‘Times Now’ sources, a student from India’s Punjab filled a complaint against Kashmiri students stating that he was “threatened and abused” by Kashmiri student after India’s defeat in the World Cup final.
The student who filed the complaint mentioned that ‘We were all watching the World Cup final between India and Australia, and I was watching as an Indian cricket team fan. When India lost the match, some Kashmiri students names, Umar, Asif, Mohsin, Tauqeer, Khalid, Sameer and Ubaid Gulzar started abusing me for being an Indian fan. They even threatened me and ask to shut my mouth otherwise I will be shot. They didn’t stop there even they started raising pro-Pakistan slogans Jeve Jeve Pakistan.”
Indian police has arrested the students under UAPA act and detained them at a local police station in Ganderbal district.
India’s Bhartiya janta party (BJP) applauded the police act. BJP spokesperson Altaf Thakur said, “Those who celebrated India’s loss are not less than a terrorist and should be booked.”
On the other hand People Democratic Party (PDP) condemned the police act. PDP spokesperson Rauf Bhatt said “This barbaric and such act won’t be tolerated and it’s unfortunate, it is injustice with those seven students.”
Remember that in the ODI cricket World Cup final Australia defeated India by six wickets at Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad on November 19.
