Srinagar, Oct 28 (KNS): The mother of Arsheed Yousuf, who has been booked by the authorities in Uttar Pradesh’s Agra area under sedition for celebrating win of Pakistan in T20 match over India on Sunday, has appealed to the authorities to have mercy upon her and forgive her son if he has committed any mistake.

Notably, on Tuesday Raja Balwant Singh Engineering Techincal College in Agra suspended three Kashmiri students for allegedly taking to social media to celebrate Pakistan’s win over India in T20 World cup match on Sunday.

Arsheed Yousuf (21) son of late Mohammad Yousuf Paul of Budgam district was among the three students who have been booked under IPC Section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups), 505(1)(B) (with intent to cause, or which is likely to cause, fear or alarm to the public) and Section 66F of the Information Technology Act.

Arsheed along with two other students, Showket Ahmad and Inayat Altaf were taken into custody by the police on Monday and a case has been registered against them under stringent laws.

Wahida, a widow, mother of Arsheed while talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS) urged the authorities to forgive his sone if he has committer any mistake and have mercy upon a widow mother.

“I beg to the authorities to forgive him for his childish mistake and release him so that his future could be saved. Being a widow I have no one to earn a penny. I have been working hard  just to make my son educated enough to earn a respectable livelihood,” she said.

With folded hands and teary eyes, Wahida pleaded the authorities to forgive her son as he is her only support after his father’s death.

“After his (Arsheed) father’s death, I am doing every possible work for my children to make them have a successful life. From labour to household works I did everything just to make him study well. But now he has been booked and this news has totally shattered me. He is my everything, my reason to live,” she said.

She said that if her son has committed a mistake, she pleads the to authorities to forgive him.

Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir students Association (JKSA) has written to the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath to drop the charges against the three students and to revoke their suspension from their college. (KNS)
