Early Times Report

Kishtwar, May 8: After derailing the education system in Kashmir valley wherein school children are being forced into stone pelting as a result of which the entire education system in most parts of the valley got crippled, the Kishtwar administration in a bizarre decision endorsed the shutdown call given by Majlis-e-Shoura, an amalgam of various religious organization by ordering the closure of schools in Kishtwar town and its peripheral areas.
As per the details available with ET, Majlis-e-Shoura committee headed by Imman Jamia Masjid Kishtwar on Monday announced shutdown in response to the killings in Kashmir valley.
BJP leaders are seeing it as an attempt to derail BJP rally organized by the party to welcome the newly inducted cabinet Minister Sunil Kumar Sharma and MoS Shakti Raj Parihar scheduled to be held tomorrow at Kishtwar. Shoura committee asked the transporters, businessmen and educational institutions to observe a complete shutdown.
Following the shutdown call, to the surprise of many, in charge CEO Kishtwar late last night issued a massage on social networking site "WhatsApp" which read "It is hereby informed that as per the direction of District Magistrate Kishtwar all the institutions (Govt/private ) falling within the Proper Town Kishtwar and Baran town shall remain close tomorrow on 8th of May 2018".
"I don't know the reason-I was only told by the District Magistrate Kishtwar to issue the order and same was issued" said I/C CEO Kishtwar. Following the WhatsApp order, I/C CEO Kishtwar today issued a written order confirming the issuance of the order on Social media through WhatsApp; however in the order he clarified that the schools will remain close only for the students only and the teachers and other staff members to remain present in the schools.
Following the shutdown call, all the educational institutions, business and public transport belonging to a particular community remained closed while traffic plied normally and no untoward incident was reported from any part of the District. Some BJP workers told ET that they had already
conveyed their displeasure to concerned authorities and hoped that the government will take a view over it and assure that such things will not be allowed to repeat in future.
