NEW DELHI: In written yellow postcards to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, students of Hindu College, the University of Delhi expressed their concern regarding the continued restrictions imposed on the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
In the letter, the students requested PM Modi that the restrictions imposed for almost 60 days now in the valley should be lifted as soon as possible.
They also wrote many slogan like “Bohot Nafrat Hai Zamane Mai, Pyar Toh Kar Liya Humne Bhi, Pyar Ke Liye Na Lade Toh Kya Kiya.”
This comes after around 73 students from St Stephen’s College wrote to PM Modi on Kashmir’s situation, The Quint reported.
Students of Hindu College have also shared the post on social media.
Standing in solidarity, a student wrote on Facebook:
“I believe those yellow coloured postcards which cost 50 paise can make a change. I believe a solidarity across colleges can make a change. This is the reason why we gathered in college today and wrote letters to the PM.”
According to the Facebook post, one of the cards exhibited read:
“Dear Mr. PM, I have classmates who belong to Kashmir. Seeing their faces just makes me feel bad about the present condition. Sir, Kashmiris are also people and the citizens of the country, I cannot imagine how enraged I would feel if someone did that to me. Think of it, sir. What if you didn’t know whether your parents are alive or dead…And sir, it has been more than a month since the abrogation of (Article) 370. We are sure you can find other ways to safeguard the security of our country. Please uplift the communication ban, sir, we implore you!”
The region was placed under a communications blockade after the Central government decided to revoke the special constitutional status accorded to Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) under Article 370, two months ago and bifurcate the state into two Union Territories.
Several mainstream political leaders, including the father-son duo and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti were put under house arrest.
