Srinagar: It was a Kashmir based leader from Bhartiya Janata Party who played a key role in the revocation of two suspended Kashmiri students at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).

   BJP national vice president youth Engineer Ajaz Hussain who hails from Balhama area in the outskirts of Srinagar city recently called on Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and appealed him to revoke the suspension order of those students at AMU who allegedly participated in the funeral in absentia of scholar turned Hizb militant Dr Manan Wani.

   “As a Kashmiri, I did my best but unfortunately those who only relied on tweets and acted as mute spectators are taking credit for this development,” Ajaz Hussain told news agency CNS.

   Pertinently, AMU management suspended two Kashmiri students after a row erupted when some Kashmiri students of AMU gathered near the Kennedy Hall on the campus to hold prayer meetings for Manan Bashir Wani, a 27-year-old PhD student who had quit the university to join militant ranks in the Valley. On Thursday, Wani was killed in an encounter with the security forces in Shatgund village in Handwara area of north Kashmir's Kupwara district.

      “The Home Minister of India gave a patient hearing and assured me of revoking the suspension order of three Kashmiri students. I was sure he will keep his word and he did,” he said and appealed students from Kashmir not to indulge in those acts that could create problems for them.

   He appealed Kashmiri students to concentrate on their studies.

   The AMU administration yesterday revoked the suspension of the two Kashmiri students, who were earlier charged with sedition along with another student. The three students were booked on Friday for allegedly raising “anti-India” slogans and trying to hold ‘namaz-e-janaza’ (prayer meeting) for Hizbul Mujahideen commander Manan Bashir Wani who was killed in a gun battle with security forces in north Kashmir’s Handwara district.
