New Delhi: Three Muslim students organizations have criticized Pakistan for interfering in India's internal affairs by fomenting violence in Kashmir valley. These organizations --which staged a demonstration near the Pakistan High Commission here today to lodge their protest against unprovoked firing by Pakistan troops along the Line of Actual Control -- have also urged the Prime Minister Mr I K Gujral, to suspend all negotiations with Pakistan till the firing stops.

Addressing the demonstrators, the general secretary of the Students Action Committee, Mr Kamra Siddiqi, alleged that Pakistan was trying to sneak in Afghan terrorists under the cover of firing.

The president of the All India Muslim Youth and Students Council, Mr Mohammed Yunus, said Pakistan should first set its own house in order and solve the problems of the Mohajirs before talking about Kashmir.
