Viral Video: Right-wing organization furious after Kashmiri students seen offering ‘Namaz’ in UP

UTTAR PRADESH — Students from Jammu and Kashmir have come under sharp criticism for offering ‘Namaz’ at the University campus in Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh.

Right-wing organization All India Hindu Mahasabha has demanded action against the students and even threatened to perform Shuddhikaran (purification process) on the campus with Gangajal and recite Hanuman Chalisa if the university fails to take any action against the Kashmiri students.

Sanskriti University, however, has clarified that the matter is being exaggerated and the video circulated on social media is a month old. The University has asked Kashmiri students to offer prayers in their hostel and not in the open.
