J-K Student Association issues advisory ahead of Ind-Pak fixture
The Jammu and Kashmir Student Association (JKSA) has urged the students hailing from the erstwhile state and studying at different universities all across the country to take the upcoming India-Pakistan game in the Asia Cup game in its spirit and stay away from posts on social media which might lead them into trouble.
The JKSA national spokesperson Nasir Khuehami issued the advisory on Saturday asking the students to take it as just another game and stay away from trouble.
Arch-rivals India and Pakistan are all set for a T20 cricket match on Sunday, as part of the Asia Cup fixture at Dubai International Stadium and it is expected to be a high-voltage match. Last year in October, Babar Azam-led Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets, following which a few students from Kashmir were arrested for uploading pro-Pakistan posts on social media, reported Hindustan Times.
“We have urged Kashmiri students studying at different universities all over the nation to have their priority set for their education and career for which they have travelled to different parts of the nation from their home state of Jammu and Kashmir,” stated Khuehami while talking to HT on phone on Saturday.
“These students need to take sports as a game and stay away from social media posts during and after the match, which might create any kind of indiscipline at any institution across the country or land them in trouble. They should not get involved in unnecessary debates, discussions or social media chat and should enjoy the game with true sportsman spirit,” Khuehami appealed.
“Out of three Kashmiri students studying at Agra, who were booked for making objectionable social media posts, only one is continuing his studies for engineering and two have returned home leaving studies in between after being released on bail from Agra District Jail on May 26, 2022,” Khuehami said.
