What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The truth is that these assertions are unfounded and fraudulent. Following a brawl between Kyrgyz and Egyptian students, the local Kyrgyz students are aiming their aggression against international students. In Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, miscreants have attacked students from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India. The Indian Embassy in Bishkek keeps an eye on the welfare of its Indian student population. So, the claim that Hindutva etremists attacked and killed a Bangladeshi student in Kyrgyzstan is not true at all. We visited India Today, which published an article on this incident on May 18, 2024 with the headline “Indian students in Kyrgyzstan asked to stay indoors after mob violence”. Pakistani and Indian officials advised students in Bishkek “to stay as violence against international students by mobs broke out in Kyrgyzstan’s capital city. While Pakistan’s embassy in Kyrgyzstan reported that some medical university hostels in Bishkek, where students from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India, reside, had been targeted during the unrest, the Indian Embassy in Kyrgyzstan declared that the “situation is currently calm.” Reacting to the situation, the Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry said in the wake of the violence, “law enforcement agencies took prompt measures to detain persons involved in the event, both foreign citizens and citizens of Kyrgyzstan”. It said the situation was “completely under the control of law enforcement agencies” and said “there are no seriously injured people among the participants of the incident”. For further clarification, we also went to gnnhd, which wrote on this on May 18, 2024 with the heading “Riots among students in Kyrgyzstan”. There has been a commotion among the local and foreign students of Bishkek—the capital of Kyrgyzstan—in which Pakistani students have also been hit. According to unconfirmed reports, three Pakistani students have been killed in the attacks of protesters, however, no deaths have been reported as yet. It added “The angry Kyrgyz students attacked and vandalized the hostels of Pakistani youths. Pakistani female students are also being harassed, on which Pakistani students have become concerned.”
