SRINAGAR: The Resistance Front (TRF), a frontal group of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, issued a statement on Friday threatening Yasmeen Ashai, J&K’s director of colleges, higher education department, for asking college principals to organise a large-scale virtual "surya namaskar" programme on Friday for Amrit Mahotsav celebrations.

Ashai had issued an order on January 12 asking colleges to conduct the "surya namaskar" programme. "Yasmeen Ashai is on our radar and she will be targeted for maligning the pious culture of JK," the TRF said.

The TRF statement said there are "Waseem Rizvi-type" of people emerging in J&K who have no job other than to "lick the boots of the occupier regime. This Yasmeen Ashai is one of the them".

"This diktat to observe the Hindutva ritual of ‘surya namasakar’ is nothing but to implement Hindutva culture in J&K (sic). Delhi has tamed Yasmeen Ashai-type stooges and traitors who follow every insane and controversial dictates (sic)," the TRF warning note said.

The TRF warned in its note that would not allow this "at any cost" and whosoever was involved in such "dirty programmes will not be spared".

It warned parents to refrain from sending their wards to such functions and told teachers to not follow such un-Islamic diktats
