New Delhi, March 02 (KMS): Khalsa Aid International, a UK-based humanitarian relief charity organization, rescued Kashmiris and provided them with food and shelter despite receiving hate mails for helping the stranded Kashmiris who were trying to escape the mobs in various states of India following the Pulwama incident of February 14.

Director Asia Pacific Khalsa Aid International, Amarpreet Singh, in a media interview said, “Some students wrote on twitter about their harassment and said that they had left their universities and were in need of shelter and food. These students came to Punjab and took shelter in a Gurduwara and when our team went to meet them, they said we want to go back to Kashmir.”

He said after seeing the condition of the students who wanted to return home, the Khalsa Aid thought to arrange buses for them but the bus service from Chandigarh to Jammu was completely shut. He said that airfares were skyrocketing and finally mini buses were arranged for them.

Amarpreet Singh said, “We have been able to send over 300 students home and 70 percent of these students were in Dehradun, and rest were from Haryana, Ambala, YamnaNagar and other adjacent areas.”

He said there were 13 girl students and they didn’t want to travel in buses fearing attacks so air tickets were arranged for them.

He said: “We were being trolled for being anti-India. People were calling us on our help-lines and abusing us for helping the Kashmiris, but we didn’t care and kept doing our work and the result of this was that people in Kashmir were showing love for Sikh community.”

As a token of love, Kashmiris have offered free packages, discounts and benefits for the Sikh community.

Responding to the overwhelming gratitude shown by the Kashmiris, Amarpreet said, “We don’t want people in Kashmir to send us donations but just keep sending their love to us.”
