A Terror Passage To India

PoK Students May Study in J&K

A new idea floated by peaceniks of J&K that will only help in brainwashing those few sane Kashmiris yet to be influenced by Paki propaganda.

Call it a peace bonanza; the students of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) might soon get admission in Jammu University.Deliberations are on to work-out modalities for signing the memorandum of understanding for exchange of students and faculty programme between the two countries. Jammu University vice-chancellor Amitabh Matoo, who recently returned from Pakistan after attending the Pugwash conference, told media persons that he held discussions with academicians of Pakistan about the exchange of students and faculties.Matoo said the PoK University was extensively damaged in the October 8 quake and is now operating from Islamabad. Hundreds of casualties and injuries were reported in the earthquake that ravaged Pakistan, North India and Afghanistan. "The quality of education in PoK is not high. The devastating earthquake has made things worse and the AJK University is operating out of a camp office from Islamabad,” he said.Matoo said if all goes well the students from across the Line of Control can join the Jammu University for pursuing higher studies. Asked whether he has talked to the Centre, Matoo said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has himself said that bureaucratic hurdles should not come in the way of peace process. “I am hopeful that the students will be allowed,” he quipped.
