Rasheed seeks lifting of ban on student unions
SRINAGAR, May 18: Asking government to shun its “discriminatory” approach towards Kashmiri students, incumbent Langate lawmaker Rasheed has sought immediate restoration of students unions and lifting of ban on formation of new students unions in universities and colleges.

Participating in a high level meeting attended by cabinet ministers, legislators and top level officers of education department in civil secretariat to review education sector in the state, Rasheed said that government must lift the ban on student organizations.

He said, “While students everywhere are having freedom of speech and expression and can form unions and organizations for the welfare of students and discussing vital issues, Kashmir is an exception and from higher secondary to University level the students are deprived of this fundamental right. Government feels no shame in banning internet which has become the very basic need of any person especially students and is now using oppressive measures to curb the voice of students.”

Rasheed sought unconditional withdrawal of all cases against students and appealed government not to believe the versions of security agencies which are just aimed at justifying the brutalities of security forces.

During the meeting Rasheed sought proper transportation for students studying in government schools and colleges and also appealed government to ensure safety of Kashmiri students studying outside valley.
