Hindu extremists harassing Kashmiris in Karnataka.

Srinagar -- Kashmiri students staying in southern Indian state of Karnataka have said that the activists of extremist Hindu organization, Akhil Bhartiya Vidya Parishad (ABVP), area harassing them and are instigating common people of the state against the students and businessmen from occupied Kashmir.

"We are feeling insecure here. A few days back some ABVP activists backed by RSS and BJP threatened a Kashmiri of dire consequences at Sanjay Nagar in Bangalore. The irony is that police is scared of these activists," a Kashmiri businessman from Bangalore told a Srinagar-based wire agency. He said that ever since the start of mass uprising in occupied Kashmir, the ABVP activists were openly instigating the local people against the Kashmiri citizens. "These activists roam freely and they harass anyone who hails from Kashmir. The people from Kashmir are not safe here," he said.

It is to mention here that Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (All Indian Student Council) is an extremist student organization affiliated with the rightwing Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
