Arsonists Not Our Comrades: Trade Bodies

SRINAGAR:Condemning the burning of schools and other landmarks in mysterious fire incidents across the restive Kashmir, the civil society and the Kashmir Inc on Monday unanimously resolved that “schools are our national assets” and that “arsonists cannot be our well-wishers.”

The speakers resolved that there was a need for a “joint and tangible strategy to foil such nefarious designs,” said a statement issued here.

Kashmir Economic Alliance, Chairman Muhammad Yasin Khan said the “burning of schools has shaken the entire Kashmiri nation and the hidden faces behind this conspiracy aimed at destabilizing the mass movement, need to be exposed.”

Stressing on the importance of education, Khan, who also heads Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation, said fire incidents at schools and elsewhere including shrines have turned into such a big concern for the people that now mere lip service won’t do but that tangible efforts are needed from the people of Kashmir to bring an end to this conspiracy of dragging the Valley to darkness.
