Kashmiri students embarrass Governor, Indian officials in IOK

Srinagar, May 31, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, organisers of a three-day conference, aimed at stimulating discussions on India’s quest for a permanent seat in United Nations Security Council, faced an embarrassing situation when the audience, mostly students, openly expressed their disliking for stars of the Indian Cricket and Bollywood.

The conference was held at Buchpora in Srinagar. The embarrassing situation arose when Rishabh Sharma, founder of Indian International Model United Nations (IIMUN) – organisers of the conference – was speaking at the inaugural day.

Expecting an enthusiasm filled cheering at the mention of cricket and Bollywood stars, Rishabh Sharma asked the audience as how many of them liked Virat Kohli. However, he was shocked to see a cold response from the audience who yelled a big NO. This left the organizers as well as the guests, including Governor N N Vohra red faced.

Trying to control the damage done, Rishabh this time switched to Bollywood, expecting some warm response from the audience. However, he faced a similar response when he asked the audience how many of them liked Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor.

To recover from embarrassment, Sharma started praising India and asked students whether they want a better future. The students this time replied in affirmative. However, when he posed a tricky question if ‘India deserved a permanent seat at the UNSC’, the students once again echoed big ‘NO’ leaving both the guests and the speaker utterly disappointed.

Apparently, when nothing worked out well for the organizers, an uneasy calm prevailed for the next few minutes. Sharma then started to share his love story with audience comprising students.
