Releasing of political leaders, and detaining of students in PSA act and other acts, in different jails of Jammu and Kashmir cannot heal the wounds, just after two weeks examination as per government is to be conducted with no curtailing of syllabus as said by the board of school education, is not able to decide what to do. Maximum students blinded, maimed, arrested, how to conduct exams for these students is an unanswered question from the education minister. On the other side students have openly said that they will boycott the examination, and sought time in March 2017, as per their saying less than 40 percent syllabus has been completed and even in some government schools nothing has been taught according to some students.
The situation across the valley is tense, volatile and voluptuous, and can anytime take unexpected changes, that can prove fatal for both government and the students. Where will they hold the exams? In jails, police stations, or in army cantonments, this is a simple question asked by parents to the state government.
The separatists have further more asked the government to open schools after withdrawing all the PSA cases slapped on Kids firsts.
The burning of schools, throwing petrol bombs, throwing stones on vendors and private vehicles to stop the movement during strike hours, has stopped much movement of traffic and vendors on the roads. The clashes between youth and forces has become a routine after 5 pm when forces are being taken back to barracks.
Kashmir still burning with smoke unseen, situation tense and at the risk of to be exploded.
