Militarization Of Government Schools Begins In IOK

Militarization of government schools begins in IOK

ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -24th Augst,2016) : Personnel associated with several paramilitary forces of India, especially called to quell uprising in the occupied territory, have settled in scores of government school buildings and are using them as their residential camps. Thus, India has virtually started a new phase of re-militarization in Occupied Kashmir, KMS reported.

The paramilitary Central Armed Protection Force (CAPF) troops have occupied the government school buildings barely a day after the puppet education Minister, Naeem Akhtar, announced the reopening of schools in the Valley. The schools occupied by the CAPF troops in Srinagar include S P Higher Secondary School, two schools in Nishat, Girls High School Kral Khud, Kothibagh Higher Secondary School both boys and girls, a school in Pantha Chowk, one school in Maharaj Gunj, one School in Safakadal, one school in Karan Nagar, one school in Lal Bazar, one school in Rainawari, Girls Higher Secondary School Rajbagh, one school in Police Lines, one school in Chanapora and one in Nowgam.

While the puppet administration is pressurizing children and teachers to attend schools in a bid to break the ongoing anti-India uprising in occupied Kashmir, it has handed over a dozen schools in Srinagar alone for accommodation of Indian armed forces, drawing massive flak from the stakeholders. At prime locations in Srinagar, Indian forces including BSF, CAPF, CRPF and SSB who have been called to handle the uprising that entered its 47th day, today, have been given accommodation in school campuses. Interestingly, the development comes at a time when puppet Education Minister, Naeem Akhtar, has claimed to hold examinations of Class 10th and Class 12th on time and had earlier asked school authorities to make their institutes functional to avoid academic losses of the students.

This helplessness of the authorities justifies Hurriyet leadership to term them as puppet authorities.
