Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday asserted that the state government will take necessary steps in next one week to identify and punish those who are behind recent incidents of burning schools in the Valley.
“When everything started moving in Jammu and Kashmir, some miscreants burnt our schools which impacted our education system,” news agency ANI quoted Mehbooba as saying.
The minister added that government was trying to ‘demotivate’ the children who had recently joined militancy and efforts were on to bring them back to their homes.
Mehbooba’s statement came at a time when unidentified militants have torched close to 30 schools in the Valley. The region is facing unrest since the last four months after killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani by security forces on July 8.
Reiterating the need to tackle Pakistan and its influence in promoting militancy in the Valley, Mehbooba said: “You can change your friends but you cannot change your neighbours. We need to adopt the ideas of Atal Bihari Vajpayee to tackle Pakistan.”
