The Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday said that the organisation has no links with any militant person or organisation and that all their activities are peaceful and within the ambit of law of the land.
The organisation was reacting to the comments of IGP Jammu who had said that IJT was behind the radicilisation of youth with non-criminal background.
In a statement issued to media, IJT said, “None of our activities are unconstitutional or detrimental to peace or law and order. Hundreds of students associated with IJT are and remain law abiding citizens and never indulge in any subversive activity”.
The IJT also said that the organization is a non-political students’ organization and stays away even from any sort of political activity. “All our activities focus on imparting moral values to students and guiding them in education and achieving excellence in professional careers so as to make them productive members of society”.
Distancing itself from the arrested student, the IJT said the person mentioned by the police was not a member of IJT and has nothing to do with the organization. “He might have attended any of our public meetings somewhere in Kashmir in the past, like hundreds of students do, but he has never officially been part of our organization anytime in the past,” the official handout said.
The IJT further said that the person in question was studying outside the State and IJT does not operate anywhere outside the State of Jammu and Kashmir. “Our activities are restricted within the boundaries of the State of Jammu and Kashmir,” it said.
