Punjab Shines a Light, Embraces Kashmiri Students Fleeing Right Wing Mobs
People in Punjab have come forward to help the Kashmiri students being hounded by the right wing Hindutva organizations in the neighbouring states of Uttarakhand and Haryana in the wake of the Pulwama attack that killed more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.
They have not only come out offering boarding and lodging to the distressed students but have been co-ordinating with the administration for the safe passage of these students to their homes in Jammu and Kashmir, while sponsoring their transport.
