NEW DELHI: In the aftermath of the bloodiest Pulwama attack, Kashmiris living in different parts of the country were allegedly thrashed and threatened by activists from right-wing organisations such as the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Bajrang Dal.
Brazen attempts were made to damage the communal harmony and brotherhood in retaliation against the terror attack. The students have been threatened at their universities or the landlords were given 24 hours to evict the accommodations.
This is organised violence against Kashmiris in various states. We received this from Mullana, #Haryana, where #Kashmiri students are studying at MM University. Speaking to one student, terrified, he has locked himself in room since yesterday. pic.twitter.com/5TTgmTT664

Fearing a mob attack, around 15-20 Kashmiri female students from Dehradun have locked themselves in a room.
The migrant Kashmiri workers who are living out of the valley got suspension orders and termination letters.
He added that they “will ensure that no Kashmiri Muslim studies or stays here”, as per reports published in The Times of India.
The VHP’s Shyam Sharma told the newspaper that they intended to “teach the students a lesson so that no one can ever dream of doing what had happened in Pulwama”.
Following the threats, the Union home ministry issues an advisory all states to ensure the safety and security of the Kashmiris.
