Indian paramilitary forces occupation of government schools in Srinagar condemned

ISLAMABAD (APP): In occupied Kashmir, amid tall claims of the puppet administration to send children to schools, the prolonged occupation of Indian forces in the institutions is leaving little chances for revival of academic activities.

Around two dozen government and semi-government schools continue to remain under occupation of Indian paramilitary forces, which have been called to suppress the ongoing uprising in Kashmir, KMS reported.

Experts asked the administration to first set all the schools free from forces before compelling parents to send their wards to school.

Academician Professor Tariq Ahmad Chalkoo said it was difficult to isolate a child from the rest of the society and ask him to go to school. "Society is a web. Child can't be isolated as he is dependent on parents, network of traffic and condition of curfew. In view of the record of curfew, it is very difficult to ensure safety of children," Professor Chalkoo added.

He said parents are worried about the safety of children. "Before we thrust on people that they should send their children to schools we should give them assurance about their safety."

The schools utilised by the authorities for accommodation of forces include three model higher secondary schools of Srinagar as well. Declared as model school, Kothi Bagh Higher secondary has become a forces' training centre with vehicles parked in the play field.
