Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said that the biggest challenge her state faces at the moment is ensuring that the Jammu and Kashmir police does parenting more than policing. “J&K police ko policing se zyada parenting ka kaam karna padega. Ye humara sabse bada challenge hai (J&K police need to do parenting more than policing. That is our biggest challenge),” Mufti was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

She also said that it’s the youth who have to face the brunt of the protests in Jammu and Kashmir, who are often used as ‘shields’. “Poor youth are being used as shields, no leader or his kin is ever injured in the protest, only the poor,” Mufti said. She also spoke about the human rights violations in her state and said that no one is a bigger human rights activist than her.

“Human rights ke thekedar jo Facebook pe purani photos daalte hain, unhe batana chahti hoon ki mujse bada HR activist koi nahi hai (To those self-appointed custodians of human rights who put up old photos on Facebook, I want to tell them that there is no bigger activist of human rights than me),” said Mufti.

Mehbooba Mufti had earlier spoken about the ceasefire violations by Pakistan and said that war is no solution to the problem and that Pakistan should initiate dialogue for peace. “Jung kisi masley ka hal nahin hai, ultimately humein dosti kar leni chahiye (War is no solution, ultimately we have to form a friendly relationship). Pakistan should initiate dialogue instead of indulging in cross border firing,” she said. “India and Pakistan need to sit together like civilised nations and talk, and I think there is a need for Pakistan to take the initiative,” she added.

    Ban pellet guns and shooting children, occupying of schools , and house to house search alienating people pushing them to stan and terrorists. Safety and guarantee of fundamental rights of the people, violation of private lives and house premises is anti people and anti national acts.

      Dreaming is good. But one has to understand that dreams most of the time do not become reality. What CM of J and K is saying in her statement is something which can be seen as a mission accomplished in dreams. India has been trying to see exactly what Ms. Mehbooba is saying, but all in vain. It needs two hands to clap. stani government's hands have been tied behind its back. Hence, one will not hear the clapping till their hands are set free to act to accomplish this objective. Instead I think Ms. Mehbooba should do everything she can to muzzle the separatists in her state, block their funding from across the border, monitor and control their activities.

        She must liberate those sentenced to death by 'stoning' by Islamic laws and enrich her police force, they can be stoned by her subjects to their hearts content and those( liberated) will enjoy it.

            Police facing Jihadists using children (who have been indoctrinated). Aim to cleanse state of kaffirs.

                I have watched several you tube videos and I feel that the JK police and CRPF jawans have overall shown - at times they have been heavy handed - remarkable restraint and patience with the stone pelting youth !lt;br/gt;They are already performing an extremely difficult job , you cannot ask them to do more !lt;br/gt;Parenting should be done by the REAL parents! lt;br/gt;Around 20 schools have been burnt , I am surprised there has been no strong protests against the Hurriyet leaders to stop destruction of educational insutes by the REAL parents !

                  Mehboba ask Muslim parents in kashmir to do their duty of real parenting by making sure young kids go to school, stop picketing and throw stones at security checkpoints to earn 500 rupees given by agents aka Hurriat in kashmir, it is not the job of law enforcement, who are duty bound to impose rule of law. You better quit than asking police not to do their sworn duty to implement rule of law. What a shame..

                    Most of the problems happening in JandK because of stupid and s Huriyat separatists, why Mehboba is not taking actions on these nuisance people? Geelani's g daughter has done the exam this matter is CM not known or what? She is not eligible for CM post.She should put these separatists to the jail otherwise should sent to stan.

                      Madam Mehboobalt;br/gt;.lt;br/gt;Parenting by police is easier said than done in a diverse society like India.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Let policing remain the primary duty of the police force.lt;br/gt;But, you can set an example by raising an auxiliary police force whose personnel are well trained in psychological counselling.lt;br/gt;Let personnel of this auxiliary force be attached to each police station and outposts where the arrested will be counselled.lt;br/gt;I think this will be a good way of balanced policing.lt;br/gt;It is unimaginable for a police personnel engaged in law and order situation to abruptly change his mode and enter into the counsellor/parenting mode and then again shift back to lathicharge mode in handling unruly protesters.
