Srinagar: Kashmiri students staying in southern Indian state of Karnataka have said that the activists of extremist Hindu organization, ‘Akhil Bhartiya Vidya Parishad’ (ABVP), area have been harassing them and are instigating the common people of the state against the students and businessmen from occupied Kashmir.

“We are feeling insecure here. A few days back some ABVP activists backed by RSS and BJP threatened a Kashmiri of dire consequences at Sanjay Nagar in Bangalore. The irony is that the police itself is scared of these activists,” a Kashmiri businessman from Bangalore told a Srinagar-based wire agency.

He said that ever since the beginning of mass uprisings in occupied Kashmir, the ABVP activists were openly instigating the locals against Kashmiri citizens. “These activists roam freely and harass anyone hailing from Kashmir. The people from Kashmir are not safe here,” he said.

It should be noted here that ‘Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad’ (All Indian Student Council) is an extremist student organization affiliated with the rightwing Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
