KU students protest against Jama’at ban
Srinagar : The students of University of Kashmir (KU) on Wednesday staged a protest demonstration inside the varsity campus to protest against the government ban on Jama’at-e-Islami outfit.
Dozens of students marched from the varsity’s History department upto Humanities block carrying banners and chanting slogans denouncing the ban on Jama’at.
Earlier, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) banned Jamat-e-Islami for the next five years. The decision came almost a fortnight after the more than 250 of its activists including the entire leadership were rounded up.
Reports appearing in the media said the central government has declared the over seventy years old party as an “unlawful association” having the potential to disrupt the unity and integrity of the country.
