JKTF protests ‘intervention’ of cops in schools
Srinagar, Sept 30: Jammu and Kashmir Teachers’ Forum has protested, what it called, the undue and unjustified intervention of armed forces, political elements, numberdars and chowkidars in educational institutions.
“It is humiliating that SPOs and Chowkidars are asking for attendance of teachers and students from heads of the educational institutions including high and higher secondary schools in various parts of Valley. Teachers are familiar with their duties and responsibilities and do not need to be taught forcibly how to perform these,” said a spokesman of the Forum in a statement, appealing to the chief secretary S S Kapoor, the divisional commissioner, Kashmir, Dr Asgar Samoon, commissioner/secretary education, Naseema Lankar and the director school education, Kashmir, Shugufta Parveen, for intervention to ensure immediate halt to the interference of all the security agencies in the administrative affairs of schools. “The school education department is very vast with enough manpower to monitor the functioning of schools at zonal, district, provincial and state level and the men in Khaki and political elements are not required to meddle into their affairs,” he said.
Rejecting as false and misleading the media reports that schools were reopened in Valley after four months, the spokesman said all the schools in Valley functioned normally on normal days in these months. “The Education Minister, Peerzada Muhammad Sayeed issued statements and expressed satisfaction over the attendance of students in government schools of villages and cities,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Forum, at a meeting held here on Wednesday with its chairman Abdul Qayoom Wani in chair, condemned the arrest of three teachers in district Varmul, demanding their immediate release.
