Let separatists hear the voice of Kashmiri children

On Wednesday, when schools in Kashmir valley opened after a gap of nearly eight wasted months due to strikes and protests, school children voiced their concerns. These children clearly said they wanted politics to be kept out of education. Children want to study, but separatists want to keep schools closed. In some incidents, they even set fire to school buildings. Separatists in the valley may claim that they are fighting for the future of children, but they should understand that keeping schools and markets shut will not help children and shopkeepers. It is ironic that separatists fail to understand what the school children have realized. Let us hope the separatist leaders will listen to the call of schoolchildren, who want peace to be restored in the valley.
