A First Information Report FIR case has been filed against Kashmiri female medical students for allegedly cheering for Pakistan and celebrating Pakistan’s victory during the World Cup match between India and Pakistan on Sunday.
But in a surprise turn of event, a militant group, United Liberation Front (ULF) in Kashmir has threatened those who have lodged complaints against the girls.
The Daily Vendor Newspaper further gathered that the complainants were also branded as ‘non-local’ persons.
A statement from the militant group states: “We have complete information on who is behind the FIR. Non-native workers and students are being warned to stay away from such activities.
In the statement, the militants also asked the complainants to apologize within 48 hours.
A (FIR) first information report is a document prepared by police organizations in South Asian and Southeast Asian countries including Myanmar, India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan when they receive information. The First Information Report deals only with cognizable offences and excludes the provision of non- cognizable offences. It is an information given to the police officer about the commission of any cognizable offence by any person who either saw it happening of the offence or who is the victim of the event.
It is to be noted that in Kashmir, there have been recent attacks on foreign workers and students. The militant group ULF has already claimed responsibility for the militant attack on migrant workers in one place of Indian state Kashmir named Anantnag.
In this situation, there is a sense of apprehension about their new warning.
Incidentally, Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets in the World Cup match on last Sunday. After Pakistan’s win against India, a video went viral.
It could be observed in the video that few of the young women studying in the girls’ hostel of Srinagar Medical College and Sri Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences were seen cheering for Pakistan’s victory.
The video shows them cheering for Pakistan. A Charges have been filed against the girls under the UAPA section.
UAPA comes into its implementation in 1967. The Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.
This is an Act to provide for the more effective prevention of certain unlawful activities of individuals and associations, and for dealing with terrorist activities, and for matters connected therewith. Sajjad Lone, a pro-Pakistan leader of the Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference party, took to Twitter to protest the incident.
According to him, cracking down on any other party does not prove that they are not patriots.
Meanwhile, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has questioned why so much anger is being shown over the Kashmiris’ outcry over Pakistan’s victory in one single cricket match.
After Hububar’s Mehbooba Mufti’s question, another Indian state Haryana’s Home Minister Anil Vij trolled her and told that there was a discrepancy in Mehbooba’s DNA.
In his words, “Mehbooba Mufti’s DNA is in disarray. And she has to prove how much Indian she is”.
