A screenshot of a Jamia Milia Islamia Unversity student’s Instagram story has been going viral and facing criticism for commenting on CRPF Personnel while calling them ‘war criminals’. The law student Mahoor Parvez allegedly shared a picture of CRPF Personnel died in an attack by militants in North Kashmir’s Handwara, while terming them as ‘war criminals’.
While sharing the picture, Mahoor Parvez wrote, ” Why are y’all obsessed with glorifying war criminals… These forces have illegally occupied and committed gross human rights violations in Kashmir for 70+ years. And yet the one who picks up the gun to liberate Kashmir is a terrorist to you and these are martyrs? Make it make sense.”

Shame.”
There has been a tweet related to the recent unfortunate incident in Kashmir, purportedly by a member of our Firm. This is to clarify that the person was a student intern in Oct 2019 & has no connection with the firm anymore (formal or informal) whatsoever.
