National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Thursday asked why Prime Minister Narendra Modi was silent on Kashmiri students being targeted in various parts of the country. Addressing the media, the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister also said talks with Pakistan cannot be held in the backdrop of attacks such as the one in Pulwama last week. “Our PM has talked about a ‘muh tod jawab’ but such a reply is not possible in the current situation,” Abdullah said a week after 40 CRPF soldiers were killed in a terror attack in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14. The Jaish-e-Mohammed has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Abdullah also asked Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik to ensure the security of Kashmiri students who were forced to return home following alleged threats and attacks in various parts of the country in the wake of the Pulwama terror strike.
