Srinagar, July 10, (Scoop News)-After witnessing growing resentment and protests by minority community over stabbing incident of a Sikh girl (name withheld), police in Kashmir has taken three students of Islamic University of Science and Technology (IUST)at Awantipora into preventive custody for questioning.
According to well informed sources, a girl from Sikh community was allegedly stabbed by two motorcycle borne youth near a bus stop where the victim was waiting for her University bus to board. The assailants with covered faces, however, managed to escape to escape.
The sources said the girl had lodged a complaint with University authorities about the attempts of her classmates to force her to convert but no timely action was taken by the University officials. She had also named three boys and a girl of the University who were allegedly forcing her to convert.
Surprisingly, no internal inquiry was instituted by the University authorities who had termed the entire incident as a trivial issue and a prank.
The police took a suo moto cognizance of the case and registered an First Investigation Report (FIR) against two unidentified assailants.
Sikh leaders had earlier appealed to the separatist leaders like Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammed Yaseen Malik to issue a strong statement about the incident and denounce the elements involved in the act.
They alleged that some youth tried to force a Sikh girl resident of Tral in Pulwama district to convert to Islam despite her strong observation about the same. The girl sustained injuries after she declined to listen to diktats of the youth. Sikh leaders said that Kashmiris as whole are very tolerant and the people who had indulged in such an act can never be a sympathizer of the residents of valley.
They said the community did not migrate from the valley and rubbed their shoulders with Muslim brethren and it is the duty of Muslim community to protect the Sikhs.
