Centre Asks States Not To Harass Kashmiris
By Our Staff Writer

New Delhi, February 3 In order to protect Kashmiris from being harassed in other parts of the country, the Centre today asked all states and Union Territories (UTs) "to exercise utmost sensitivity while making inquiries about residents of Jammu and Kashmir" and not to single them out "unnecessarily" for police reporting.

The move announced on the day Union Home Minister P Chidambaram was in Jammu to review overall security situation, was also backed by the team of interlocutors.

In the advisory, the Union Home Ministry said: "It has also asked the states to issue appropriate instructions to all police stations that they (Kashmir origin people) should not be singled out unnecessarily for police reporting merely on grounds of their being original Kashmiri residents".

The advisory also comes close on the heels of Mumbai Police recently issuing unsigned notice to its police stations, asking them to keep a close watch on Kashmiris. The state government had subsequently raised the issue with the Home Ministry, stating that this was insulting for J&K residents.

The interlocutors, too, had received representations from the public and various stakeholders that Kashmiri boys and girls were singled out by the police in other parts of the country and asked to report to police stations merely on account of the fact that they belong to Kashmir.

"This kind of treatment affects the sensibility of the residents of state and they experience a sense of humiliation leading to feeling of alienation and injustice. The Indian Constitution and the law of the land does not permit discrimination on account of race, religion, caste and creed," the advisory said.
