Pakistan backed terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir, in yet another incident, set a school ablaze in the Parigam area of Kulgam town on Wednesday, November 6. This comes as the tenth-grade examinations are on their way. The ‘Mission High School’ which is one of the private schools in the Parigam area was set on fire. The fire department has been working on containing the fire. This is another attempt by the terrorists to disrupt the peace in the Kashmir valley as another school was the torched in Shopian on Saturday.
All of this comes either ahead or amid the ongoing examinations of various schools in Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier, Republic TV’s sources in Kashmir have said that a lot of parents have been getting calls asking the children not give the exams in the Valley. The school that was torched on Saturday was situated in the Kundalam area of Shopian. However, apart from the private ‘Mission High School’ targeted on Wednesday, the terrorists have targeted several schools in Kulgam before this. Ranging from various ceasefire violations to the killings of civilians, Pakistan backed terrorists have been attempting to inflict fear among the common people by targeting schools.
Apart from this, the terrorists have also been killing the non-Kashmiris in the valley. They recently killed the six innocent labourers from West Bengal’s Murshidabad district in the Kulgam region of Kashmir. Earlier, non-locals were attacked in Shopian & Anantnag as well. Last week, terrorists shot dead a truck driver in Anantnag district. Unidentified terrorists also fired six to seven rounds on a CRPF deployment at an examination centre in Kashmir's Pulwama district. On Monday last week, terrorists had lobbed a grenade in a busy market area, injuring 19 civilians. The attack took place near J&K Bank New Colony Bank, which is a few meters away from Sopore Bus Stand. Incidentally, the attack took place a day before the scheduled visit of a 27-member European delegation to Kashmir.
