Students at Delhi University wrote post cards addressing the prime minister Narendra Modi, saying “Things are not fine’ and that what’s happening in Kashmir is not normal, demanding to lift the communication blockade.
Around 73 students from St Stephen’s College used yellow post cards to make their appeals on the communication ban in Kashmir, said Ashley Np, an assistant professor at the college, in a Facebook post.
“Respected Prime Minister, Let them speak. The silence is too loud to not be heard,” one of the postcards read.
Hindu College, University of Delhi, have also written postcards to PM Modi expressing their concern over the condition of people in the Valley.
“We need to speak up. And we have seen how the students of St Stephen’s have taken an empathetic and compassionate stand on this. They gathered, discussed and wrote letters to the Prime Minister of the country in postcards appealing to lift the communication blockade in Kashmir,” Benna Fathima, Hindu College wrote on Facebook.
“I believe those yellow colored post cards which costs 50 paise can make a change. I believe a solidarity across colleges can make a change. This is the reason why we gathered in college today and wrote letters to the PM. In a time where writing letters to the Prime Minister, condemning the mob lynching can cause you a threat, we assert that no matter what happens there will always be prayers, poetry and protest. There will always be the remembrance of solidarity and love,” Benna wrote.
