Burning of Schools, A Recipe For Complete Destruction: KCDS

SRINAGAR: Kashmir civil society pressure group, Kashmir Centre For Social and Developmental Studies, (KCSDS) Friday deplored the burning of schools in Kashmir.

“KCSDS  views with great anguish and concern the rising incidents  of burning of school buildings in the valley in which 25 schools have already been reduced to ashes,” a statement of the group said.

The statement warned all those elements— whether agents or social miscreants—involved in these dastardly acts of far reaching consequences asking them to desist from the shameful criminal acts.

“As if brutal killings, blinding and  maiming ,  destroy operations of crops  and homes  and  mass arrests were not enough  that the educational institutions responsible for enlightening , edifying and civilising young generation have to be burnt down to erase  the foundations of  enlightening  and nurturing  the young minds,” the statement said. “It is a recipe for the complete devastation of the young generation.”

The govt must depoliticise the opening of schools and conducting of exams. It must listen to the voice of students in massive protest demonstrations against holding of exams in November.
