Parents Stage Protest Against Army

KL Report


Scores of parents Saturday alleged that Army authorities did not permit their children to sit in classes at Army Goodwill School Hajin. They blocked the Srinagar-Hajin road and raised slogans against Army.

Pertinently, after killings of two youth in Markundal area of Hanjin Sonawari, protestors set a portion of the Army Goodwill School on fire in Hajin in July this year.

Parents said that Army is blaming their children for the incident. “Army is claiming that our children who study in that school are involved in fire incident. They are just class 3rd students how they can set a school on fire,” one of the parents told a local news agency, CNS.

Army is not allowing at least 43 students to sit in the classes. Police and administrative officials visited on spot and assured the protestors that matter would be taken up with the Army.

Tehsildar Sumbal told CNS that the matter would be taken up and hopefully till Monday the matter would be resolved.

Commanding Officer 13 RR told parents to submit a memorandum in writing and assure the Army that these students would not indulge in stone-pelting and arson incidents in future.

Parents said that Commanding Officer has told them that he would talk to Core Commander. Parents warned that if their children would not be allowed to sit in the classes then they would stage protest on daily basis in front of the Army Goodwill School.
