Kashmir: Children attend alternate schools as classes remain suspended for more than a month

curfew in the Kashmir continue for the 34th day

As the curfew in the Kashmir continue for the 34th day following the death of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, that led to severe protest in the Valley, normal life remains to be disrupted. Schools, colleges, business establishments, petrol pumps and private offices remained closed while public transport remained off the roads. 

The schools in the Valley have been closed for more than one and half months. The schools which were closed for the summer vacation never reopened as curfews were enforced following Wani's death on July 8 and series of protest that followed. 
Unable to attend normal classes for so long, the Kashmiri children now attend alternate schools in different parts of the city. 
Kashmir Valley schools were shut for almost a month and a half in 2008, and for more than three months in 2010. In 2010, the death of a school student, Tufail Mattoo, from a tear-smoke shell fired by security forces had triggered a fierce wave of protests against the government and the army. 
The past few weeks, especially, has seen childhood interrupted. With n schools to attend and protest and curfew outside, the children are forced to be indoors by their parents. The playgrounds and streets where they used to play have been surrounded and guarded by the Army.
The unrest that has claimed the lives of more than 55 civilians has been hard for the kids in the Valley. Many children too have suffered pellet injuries. 
Accepting demands from several Opposition parties, the government on Wednesday said it was convening an all-party meeting on Friday to discuss the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, and that it was ready to initiate political dialogue with mainstream political parties, “moderates” and “other organisations” in the state.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that based on his two-day stay in the Valley last month and the information he had been receiving, he could authoritatively say that the situation in Kashmir was not entirely being controlled by the local population. “Whatever is happening in Kashmir is Pakistan-sponsored,” he said. Singh ruled out any talks with Pakistan on Kashmir.
