Leave now or face dire consequences: Hindu outfit to Kashmiris in UP

The Uttar Pradesh Navnirmaan Sena put up hoardings with the message: "Social boycott of Kashmir youth who pelt stones at the Indian Army. Leave UP or else." These hoardings were installed in five locations.

A notorious Hindu outfit has issued a warning to the natives of Kashmir and who are living in UP to face dire consequences if they do not leave UP immediately.

The incident was reported on Friday evening when Uttar Pradesh Navnirmaan Sena (UPNS) put up large hoardings at around five prominent places in the western UP.

The hoarding read "Bhatriya sena par pathar maarne waale Kashmiriyon ka bahishkar..Kashmiriyon UP chhodo varna" (social boycott of Kashmir youth who pelt stones at the Indian Army..Leave UP or else..).

The hoardings were put on the two main crossings the Meerut University and the Subharti Medial College and three other localities.

It is to be mentioned that over 100 Kashmir youths (boys and girls) study in the Subharti Medical College - a renowned private medical college.

HOARDINGS REMOVED

However, taking swift action, the district police on Saturday removed all the hoardings.

"An FIR has also been registered against Amit Jani, the self-styled head of the outfit. We are conducting raids to nab him," Senior Superintendent of Police (Meerut) J Ravindra Gaur told mediapersons.

Jani is the same person who vandalised the statues of former UP chief minister Mayawati and Bahujan Samaj Party founder Kanshiram in Lucknow a few years ago.

Although the newly appointed chief minister at that time Akhilesh Yadav was quick enough to replace the statues in the next couple of hours, Jani stayed underground for over three months before being finally arrested in Meerut.

POLICE MEETING WITH STUDENTS

Meanwhile, the police also held a meeting with the Kashmir students on Saturday afternoon and have assured them of all kind of assistance and proper security.

"We have also deputed a few cops outside the college and given our mobile numbers to the students. They need not to worry, and can call us any time if they have the minutest of problem related to these hooligans," said Gaur. Meanwhile, the Hindu Yuva Vahini (an outfit associated with BJP) has seconded the stand of UPNS.

"They (Kashmir youth) are criminals and they can disturb the harmony of any place in India. It is better that they remain in Kashmir and the army should be given a free hand to deal with them," said Rahul Yadav, district president of HYV, Meerut.

SIX KASHMIRI STUDENTS ALLEGEDLY THRASHED IN CHITTORGARH

The hoarding incident comes to light a day after of another assault in Rajasthan this week. Six Kashmiri students enrolled at the Mewar University in Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan were allegedly thrashed by locals on Wednesday.

A Kashmir student at the Mewar University was d as saying, "At least, nine fellow students were beaten up with sticks and bats around 6 pm on Wednesday near Gangrar town after locals got to know that we are from Kashmir. At least, 6 of them were injured."
