A Kashmiri government college student from South Kashmir and an NCC cadet has been trolled for speaking out against the recent stone pelting and for urging youth to shun sloganeering. As per initial reports, the cadet was slammed for raising her voice against stone pelting and is now even facing death threats on social media platforms as well.

In the video the girl is seeing appealing to the youth to do better things instead of creating chaos by which children are unable to attend their school as parents don’t allow them to leave their houses.  “Everyone is aware about the prevailing situations that are taking place in Srinagar and many places in the south valley, So I request all the parents and children to please not to go towards the bad things about protesting, stone pelting and putting slogans about Azaadi and all,” the girl was quoted as saying. 

“I want to tell the youth that the real azadi (freedom) is here. If you want azadi, it is here,” she said in the post and asked young Kashmiris to stay away from stone pelting.  “Stay away from stone pelting and azadi campaigns…,” one of her posts said.

The girl was the only one representing her college at the ongoing National Cadet Corps (NCC) camp in Nagarkota. Some other women cadets from Kashmir, however, also undergoing training at the camp at Sainik school at Nagrota echoed her views.

The girl was even backed by Deputy CM Nirmal Singh who said that she is representing the Kashmiri people and the youth who wants to live in peace.

“She has spoken the mind of the Kashmiri people,’’ the Deputy CM added.

Stone pelting has been a major problem that has crippled Kashmir on occasions more than one bring the state to its knees many a times.
