Students should focus on studies, let elders deal with bigger issues: J&K CM
The people of Jammu and Kashmir have to choose between peace and violence, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said on Sunday as she asked students to focus on their education by letting the elders address bigger issues.
"The people here need to decide...they need to think what they want and how they want it. (Whether) by pelting stones, by killing bright children like (young army officer) Ummer Fayaz or a bank employee or a youth working in police (who work hard for earning their livelihood) or by resorting to looting banks and weapons? "Are we not, God forbid, strangulating Kashmiriyat (by such acts)? I am hopeful that people here are fundamentally peace-loving and prefer brotherhood and would not forget the teachings of Kashmiriyat or co-existence with every religion," she said.
