No space given to students to register protest, forced to hit streets, says Mirwaiz

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Chairman of Hurriyat (M) during his Friday sermon said that the students of the valley were being forced to hit the streets as the space for dissent is missing.

In a tweet, Mirwaiz said:


The valley is witnessing massive student protests against the Kathua rape and murder case and the civilian killings. Dozens of students have been injured in clashes.

Recently Education Minister, while talking tough, said that students should control their emotions and go back to their classrooms.

However, in a meeting with the Education Minister, many principals told him that forces ‘disrupt the peaceful protests of the students’. Earlier Works Minister Naeem Akhtar also asked the students that when the accused are in jail and the trail is going on, why are you protesting?
