Kashmiri Muslims are being warned to stay vigilant,amid the reports of threats of last week’s deadly attack on Indian forces.
Some incidents of Kashmiri students being beaten up in north Indian states also made the situation worse.India’s Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) offered help to students in need, but also warned of false reports.
Recent reports emerging from northern India point to several incidents of Kashmiri students being targeted by a furious public. Most of the instances were centred around the northern states of Haryana and Uttarakhand.
The suicide attack in Pulwama,which took away 40 lives of CRPF personnel in Kashmir,made public rage uncontrollable in some states.
There are also some ‘fake news’ and ‘messages with edited pictures of blood shedding jawans’ are spreading in social media, encourage people to seek revenge for the attack. The comments on these pictures are thousands in numbers, and most of those are asking the government to “attack Pakistan”.
