Press Club of India condemns slogan-shouting by Kashmiri students

New Delhi, Feb 11 (IANS) The Press Club of India (PCI) on Thursday condemned the raising of anti-India slogans by Kashmiri students in the PCI compound to protest the execution of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru in Tihar Jail in 2014.

“We strongly condemn the incident in the PCI premises by miscreants yesterday (Wednesday). We have taken strong action against a club member under whose signature the conference hall was hired,” said PCI secretary general Nadeem Ahmad Kazmi.

Kazmi said a show-cause notice had been served to the person concerned and further action will follow.

“We normally let out the premises for holding press conferences or seminars on a member’s recommendation. We wish to make it clear that we are in no way responsible for such incidents,” Kazmi said.

“On the contrary, when our managing committee came to know about the happenings, they went to the conference hall and forcibly got the premises vacated.”

Kazmi said the club is reviewing the process of letting out the premises.
