Government Boys Middle School Tapper in north Kashmir’s Pattan area Pic courtesy: Sameer Yasir More than five hundred students of Tapper and adjoining areas are enrolled in this school It’s early in the morning and students mostly children have gathered in the premises of the school looking sadly at the destruction Smoke still emanates from the burnt cupboards half burnt chairs and tables The chairs in the Principal’s office have turned into a frame of charcoal Nida Hamid a Class 6 student of the school can identify her classroom even her desk which has been charred beyond repair Along with her friends she had recently visited the school which has remained closed since July 9 “This used to be my classroom There is my desk but it is gone now" the 13-year-old told Firstpost In the last six days six schools have been reduced to ashes in the Kashmir Valley According to officials 21 schools have been burnt to ashes or damaged mysteriously during the on-going unrest Schools and other educational institutions in Kashmir have been shut since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani in July Students have not attended schools for nearly four months now The unrest has killed 94 civilians and two security forces personnel while more than 14000 have been injured The police have arrested 7000 protesters so far Director General of Police K Rajendra Kumar told Firstpost that the Kashmir Police is pursuing these cases and trying to identify the miscreants behind the incidents "First it is a matter of concern for all of us because it will affect the education of our children We are in the process of putting in place security patrols around school buildings to ensure such incidents are not repeated" Kumar said However the DGP says that there are thousands of schools in the Valley and it is nearly impossible to guard all of them "so the locals have to take the responsibility of protecting schools in their neighbourhood" No one seems to have any idea who is burning these schools and why In the last three months of unrest in Jammu and Kashmir three higher secondary schools eight high schools eight middle and primary schools and one Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya school have been damaged State education officials say more than 6000 students are enrolled in these schools Director of School Education Kashmir Ajaz Ahmad told Firstpost that on an average a school is being burnt by miscreants every week and his department has increased the number of night watchmen in schools to prevent such incidents "These attacks started some six weeks back and police is trying to find the culprits behind them For the moment we have no idea who is doing it" he said Such incidents are now being reported with increasing frequency after the state government decided to go ahead with the exams in November ignoring the students’ pleas that they haven’t been able to cover even half of their syllabus The students and the Hurriyat as well as school heads are opposing the move The damaged signboard of Government Boys Middle School Tapper in north Kashmir’s Pattan area Pic courtesy: Sameer Yasir Naeem Akhtar Minister of Education J&K said recently that the damage to schools is "not just burning of an institution but it is a colossal loss for the entire society" "The biggest causality has been the loss of human lives which is irreparable We cannot bring them back but we can save our future generation" said Akhtar Now Syed Ali Geelani chairman of his faction of Hurriyat Conference has asked people to remain vigilant about such mysterious incidents “Recently in different areas schools and private vehicles have been burnt and we have reports that culprits do so in the vicinity of police and under their watchful eyes" Geelani-led Hurriyat Conference said in a statement on 26 October The Hurriyat Conference said that the "unknown" label is a "misnomer and these anti-people and anti-social actions are carried out in broad daylight with a well-planned strategy to malign the on-going movement and paint it with violence and anarchy” But the bigger question remains Who will benefit out of razing the educational institutions to the ground "We will never forget the people who died For the good of all we have to proceed constructively and dialogue is the only way forward" Akhtar the education minister said Indian ministers regardless of their political affiliation have always shown far greater keenness to lecture women on dress codes than hold the police accountable for not doing their job: that is ensuring the safety of women in all spaces at all times day or night Keeping firmly within this tradition Union Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma cautioned women tourists against wearing skirts and travelling alone in India’s small towns According to a report inThe Indian Express while addressing a press conference in Agra on Sunday Sharma said: “Paryatako ko jab wo airport par aate hain unko ek welcome kit di jaa rahi hai Ek card hai usme usme do’s and don’ts kya karein aur kya na karein Jaise chhoti chhoti batein hain humne unhe bataya ke aap chhoti jagah par raat-waat ke time akele na niklein skirts na pahnein… Doosra humne unhe bataya ki aap jis gaadi mein baithe us gaadi ki number plate ka photo le lein aur apne… kisi dost ko forward kar dein… (We give welcome kits to tourists when they land at the airport The kit includes a card with do’s and don’ts such as do not venture out alone at night in small towns do not wear skirts take a picture of the registration number of the vehicle you use and send it to a friend…)” A file image of Mahesh Sharma PTI It is a sad reflection on the state of the country that one of its cabinet ministers is considering announcing dress code advisories and restrictions on foreign women tourists This move only confirms what other countries have often suspected about India To recall in this context the travel advisories periodically issued by foreign governments about visiting India have reached a crescendo of course after the gangrape of the medical student in Delhi on 16 December 2012 In other words many international governments did not and often do not consider India as a safe destination safe for its women citizens Now our own government too seems to be admitting to this fact and almost conceding its failure in ensuring women’s safety across India If such an admission doesn’t embarrass us or the government then surely nothing else will After all what would “smart cities and bullet trains” be worth if women who access these places and transport systems have to dress according to government advisories and travel while constantly looking over their shoulders But the bizarre thing about all this is that the culture minister seems unaware that he has actually made a public admission of his government’s failure to ensure safety In fact on Sunday he appeared to suggest that the onus of safety falls on women tourists themselves One wonders why it never struck the minister that the onus should in fact rest primarily and decisively on the police and local administrations around the country Not a word was said about the police in this context The subtext of the minister’s proposed advisory instead reiterates the age-old misogynist belief that women are molested harassed and raped because of the way they dress “Provocative revealing” is how politicians – like many other men – are prone to describe any attire they believe to be an “invitation” to sexual predators Making matters worse Sharma later invoked his status as the father of two daughters to clarify that he has not proposed a dress code or banned skirts “I am a father of two daughters. I would never tell women what they should wear or not” This is not the first time that politicians have fallen back on their daughters to prove how aware they are of women’s rights and their concerns What that has to do with ensuring safety for women is of course anybody’s guess Last but not least Sharma intoned the government’s favourite advertising jingle He said Indian culture espouses ‘Atithi Devobhava’ (a guest is akin to god) “Such a ban (on wearing a skirt) is unimaginable but it is not a crime to be cautious Different countries issue advisories from time to time but I never said change one’s way of dressing” the minister said Clearly like his countless other colleagues across party lines Sharma doesn’t get the nub of the matter: that he is tacitly admitting that Indian men can turn into sexual predators at any moment if provoked This is hardly a flattering tagline for a nation jostling to get a seat on the world stage Shah Rukh was trying to ease his pain due to a knee injury.
