Commenting on the present unrest in the Valley, Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said that the police in the state need to do more of parenting than policing.
“J&K Police will have to do more of parenting than policing. This is our biggest challenge,” a news agency quoted the J&K CM as saying. A bout of violence started in Jammu and Kashmir on July 9, a day after Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani was killed by security personnel. Thousands of youth have been protesting in the Valley since then.
While over 70 civilians have lost their life, hundreds have been injured in the unrest that has gripped the Valley.
Lashing out at the separatists in the state, Mehbooba also said that they were not allowing schools in the Valley to function because they want a new generation of uneducated youths who can pelt stones and can be used as “cannon fodder”.
“If the youth gets education they won’t pelt stones for them. The (separatist) leadership want a generation of uneducated youths who can pelt stones for them,” Mehbooba said in a scathing attack on separatists during a passing out parade of police officers here,” Mufti told media reporters in Udhampur.
Earlier in the day, she had also spoken on the numerous ceasefire violations by Pakistan and said that war is not a solution. Encouraging a dialogue between the two countries, she said, ” “Jung kisi masley ka hal nahin hai, ultimately humein dosti kar leni chahiye (War is not a solution. Ultimately we should have a friendly and harmonious relationship)”.
