AICTE directive to J&K students not to take admission in PoK negates principle of SAARC: PSAJK

Srinagar, May 15 (UNI) Private Schools Association of Jammu and Kashmir (PSAJK) said on Wednesday that AICTE directive asking students of the state not to take admission in educational institutes in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) negates the basic principle of SAARC cooperation.
Chairman of moderate Hurriyat Conference (HC) Mirwaiz Moulvi Omar Farooq termed it as ''unfortunate politicization of education'' which violates the fundamental right of students to seek education anywhere on the globe.
G N Var, Chairman of PSAJK, said India is part of SAARC group and all educational institutes in group should be treated on a par. One cannot pick and choose educational institutes in a particular region, he said.
Mr Var said that besides impacting education to hundreds of students it will also have serious ramification in larger run. “The SAARC group and all associated agreements have been honoured through many decades and hostile conditions including war and suddenly barring PoK educational institutes there is beyond comprehension.”
The association also called on the government to keep education out of ambit of politics. The
Condemning the government’s directive, the Mirwaiz called it ''unfortunate politicisation of education'' which violates the fundamental right of students to seek education anywhere on the globe. Besides, it has puts the career of those studying there in jeopardy and uncertainty, he said.
Kashmiri students, like students worldwide, have every right to study anywhere they choose and barring them from seeking admission in educational institutions of POK which is part of entire J&K of which they are state subjects, makes no sense.
He said after suspension of cross- Line of Control (LoC) trade that has greatly affected the traders and those associated with it and the economy this is another regressive move adversely affecting the students of the state this time.
The Mirwaiz urged those in power not to play politics with the career of Kashmiri students and take back this unreasonable diktat.
