A conference of Kashmiri students in the national Capital held on Saturday to connect them “with the national mainstream, involve them in nation building and bring them on the right path” was a huge hit with large number of people attending it, including Jamia Millia Islamia Vice Chancellor Professor Talat Ahmad.
The event was organised by the Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM), an RSS affiliate, organising.
Banners too had surfaced around Jamia. According to the Indian Express report, the MRM conference will be held at the Constitution Club and among those invited by organisers are Union ministers Jitendra Singh, Gen V K Singh, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Krishan Pal Gurjar; J&K BJP leader and Administrator (Lakshadweep) Farooq Khan; and, Vice Chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia Prof Talat Ahmad.
While Khan and Ahmad confirmed their attendance, a Home Ministry official said that Rajnath Singh “may not be able to attend because of other engagements”, claimed the report.
Union Minister Jitendra Singh said: “My name is there in the programme and I will go if I find time.” Nirmal Singh said he was in Bengaluru and may not be able to attend. Incidentally, the two-day BJP national executive meeting concludes in Delhi Saturday.
“I have got an intimation from the Home Ministry and I will attend. I have been the V-C of Kashmir University and that’s why they wanted me to attend,” said Prof Ahmad.
In an email sent to media house, Dr. Imran Chaudhry (Ph.d), (National Co-Convener)Muslim Rashtriya Manch, informed journalists about the event. Also, he posted a few photos of the event on page.
