Don't send wards to schools: Geelani to Kashmiris
The hardline Hurriyat Conference leader appealed to people to strictly observe civil curfew on Monday.
Srinagar: With educational institutions all set to reopen on Monday in Kashmir Valley, the hardline Hurriyat Conference, led by Syed Ali Shah Geelani, on Sunday asked parents not to send their wards to schools and colleges.
"No right thinking person can deny the importance of education in society, but to think that they (government) are concerned about the future of our children is like a mad man's dream," Geelani said.
The Hurriyat hawk alleged most of the youths killed in the ongoing unrest in the Valley were students.
Many more were injured and hundreds were languishing in jails, he further alleged.
Geelani appealed to people to strictly observe civil curfew on Monday when schools and colleges would resume their normal functioning in the Valley.
The separatist leader also appealed to teachers and the non-teaching staff to stay at home.
Education system has suffered immense damage during the ongoing unrest and imposition of curfew in Kashmir.
Saturday, the hardline Hurriyat faction rejected the Centre's eight-point formula to de-escalate the current turmoil in Kashmir terming it as an "eye wash".
