Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday called upon all states to ensure the safety of all Kashmiris anywhere in the country, insisting that they are equal citizens of India. His appeal comes a day after six Kashmiri students studying in Mewar University, Rajasthan were injured following a scuffle with locals at a market in Chittorgarh district. “I appeal to all states, they should ensure safety of all Kashmiris anywhere in country. They are also equal citizens of India.”

Asserting that “Kashmiris are a part of our family”, Singh said all the states have been directed to take strict against those who are indulging in perpetrating any sort of violence against Kashmiri students. “Rajyon ko kaha hai ki koi bhi Kashmiri bacchon ke saath kahin badsalooqi karta hai uspe kadi karyavahi ki jaaye.

Meanwhile, banners calling for boycott of Kashmiris and threatening them to leave Uttar Pradesh had emerged along the Delhi-Dehradun highway in the wake of incidents of stonepelting on security forces in Kashmir.  The Uttar Pradesh Nav Nirman Sena, a little-known outfit, has asked Kashmiris to leave the state by April 30.

          Give equal status to Hindus in Kashmir. Any Hindus should able to move in to Kashmir, build houses, live without fear and do businesses etc.

            Not happening until you define yourself. Not happening until you use a ton of fair and lovely to brighten yourself. Kashmiri Hindus are no longer Kashmiri. Not welcome into this land anymore. It's a one long bye bye for them.

          Rajnathji, please give similar advice to the J&k government and Kashmiris to protect the Army men who are there to protect the country and the public wealth. They are also citizens of India and deserve the same treatment. They are not anyone's enemy. Whatever problem the Kashmiris have let them sort it out with their politicians and their government.

            Salute to your comment. This is the example of sheer lack of knowledge and truth asking for advice. It is their govt. in both Center and J&K. And other similar comments are broiling version of this situation

                    Respected Hon'ble Home Minister Sir, before asking for safety and security of Kashmiri students in other parts of the country, first, it is the duty of Central Government to ensure the life of Indian security personnel, CRPF, Army, BSF, and other security personnel in J&K. These lion hearted security personnel are facing dangerous opposition not only from the extremists, terrorist groups working in J&K, but also from the opposition parties as well as local people.

                      Kashmiri Students are not Indian. Kashmiri Brahmins and muslims are ethnically seperate from India or stan. Kashmiri pundits are superior to Indian shudras. India has repeated betra Kashmiri pundits and muslims. Hari om !

                        But Rajnath Singh Ji Kashmiris do not support your idea of India. Where you dictate their dietary preferences, demand that they shout BMKJ instead of Jai Hind, demand that they sing Vande Mataram as Jana Gana Mana is not enough to prove patriotism. Sangh Parivar and Modi Ji want to promote militant Hindutvaism - waving swords on Rama Navami day, and want all Muslims including Kashmiris to become peace loving like Sufis. Stop this hyprocrisy please Mr Singh

                          Rajnath Singh is often the voice of reason and wisdom amongst the hate-filled cocophony of rrs bandars and their other pseudo-nationalist symphathisers.

                                          Why such kind of rare incidents going to happening in some particular states. It is an indication of polarising India.The govt's responsibility to tackle such situations should have topmost priority,without which India will proceed through a darkest era,instead of developing India.

                                                        Yes well done Home Minister and it is your duty to protect the Kashmiri Students across the States and there are some anti-social element who will try to create unrest may use to their advantage and instruct through your Office to deal with such out fits very sternly and even give instructions to arrest them if they indulge in such acts to create unrest among the students and hope the State Home Ministers are advised properly to handle with stern action against the anti-social elements !!!

                                                          Two Hindus stabbed to death by musselman in Madhya Pradesh, news, goes on 4 th page so no one can see it. Nothing happened to Kashmiri muss Lena, home ministry gives them big service and media makes it front page line . Shame on you BJP, you giving up to Islam. Useless morons

                                                            It's just coz ....media are instructed to avoid giving importance to such newses that creates more disharmony..U want it on the front page coz U live violence blood and death .... U forget that when u kill 10/from other religion 2 are killed at ur side.... And that two will be a great loss for the family the belong ... Because of the beef ban and attack over cow issue ..AL.kabir and other similar products are boycotted by Muslims across GCC ... They say the reason they are produced by RSS.... Who is losing here .our government .. When government is losing money it's lose of common people.like us .... If these kinda hatred is encouraged .... We are going to be. Cornered from.entire world .. So think for country not for ur community
