Kids are suffering in Jammu and Kashmir crossfire after Article 370 scrapping
More than a month after the decision of scrapping Article 370 and dividing the state into two Union Territories was taken by the Centre, tension prevails in the Kashmir Valley.
Kashmiris have been suffering due to the prevailing situation in the Valley. The worst-hit of this situation are the students, who have been skipping school for a very long time.
For more than a month now, there is hardly any student in the school. As the annual examinations is nearing, the situation is becoming grimmer.
While the government has been claiming that it has asked all the schools to remain open, students are not attending the classes. Most of the parents are not sending their children to school.
“How can we send our children to school in this atmosphere. Nothing is working here. The government is making false claims,” said Barkat Ali, a resident of Tankipora in Srinagar.
Parents have been resorting to home tuitions or private tuitions. Ali takes his two daughters to one such community private tuition every day. He waits outside the centre for hours and then brings them back. He has been doing this for the last 15 days.
Ali Said, “Our kids have a dark future. How will they compete with the outside world? Just all of a sudden when everything was fine, we were thrown into this.” His daughters are also worried that they wont be able to perform in the annual examinations this year.
