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.
