JK govt orders closure of coaching centres in Kashmir, triggers anger

Kashmir student protests Education minister orders tuition centres to shut for 90 days

Coaching centre owners claim the government was making them a "scapegoat" in motivating students to shun from protesting. Bukhari met the principals at a meeting held to work out ways to ensure normal functioning of schools and colleges. It is very likely that many of these educational institutions will remain shut Monday onwards as well. The diktat has sparked anger across the already restive valley.

The aftermath of the killing of Burhan is only one such incident that jeopardised students' academic year in the valley.

"I don't understand why are students protesting, when accused have been arrested and case is under trial".

Kashmir has been in the throes of spiraling student protests in the past month or so to seek justice for the Kathua rape-murder victim whose body was found in Rasana village on January 10.

Reacting to the closure of all private tuition centres in Kashmir valley for 90 days, Congress today expressed surprise over the move, describing it as the endorsement of the failures on the part of State Govt.

Education minister Atlaf Bukhari, however, insisted that student protests did not guide the decision.


Perplexed by the protests, Bukhari on Saturday had warned the students to return to classes or else the government will be constrained to shut educational institutions permanently in the valley.

The agitation on the streets is a repeat of the situation in April previous year when students took to the streets in nearly all parts of the Valley and the state government was forced to shut schools for weeks altogether. In view of the protests, the government had been shutting down schools and colleges. Instead, we are doing injustice with somebody to whom we pelt stones upon. "Human Rights Violations". A "Money-Minting Shops" with relation to Coaching Institutes by Education Minister and other government officials time and again is condemnable and unfortunate.

In a weird kind of its development, the Jammu and Kashmir government on Sunday ordered the shutting down of all Coaching Centers in Kashmir following the widespread student protests in the length and breadth of Valley.

The state government decision to close coaching centres in Kashmir has come under severe criticism with those running the tuition centres calling the move "dictatorial and illogical".

"When they attend private tuitions in the morning, they have no urge to attend the classes in schools, because it is just the repetition of their syllabus in the classrooms", Bukhari told Firstpost.
