Resolve unemployment problem to prevent youth joining militancy
12/10/2017 9:47:35 PM
It seems that the PDP-BJP coalition Government has left it to the educational institutions to brain was students so that they no longer indulged in stone pelting thereby derailing peace in Kashmir. Though the Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti,has ordered release of over 4500 youth who had resorted to, for the first time,stone pelting,the Government is not sure that this release may promote peace in Kashmir. That is the reason that the Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu, has appealed to the management and teachers of various educational institutions, especially the schools, to train the youth in a way they no longer resorted to stone pelting.And if they do it the exercise of Mehbooba could prove a failure. Chief Minister has granted amnesty to those first time stone pelters with the hope that after their release they may not resort to acts of violence which normally means stone pelting against security forces. And a mild retaliation by the security forces invariably gives rise to bigger violence leading to casualities. Like a philosopher Drabu has said that no child is born with the desire to pelt stones or resort to violence. "No human being has a desire for violence," Drabu has said . He said that schools are the best platform to address the "situation" of turmoil in Kashmir. "Schools need to be placed in a cultural context. You can't replicate a school of a different culture in another state with a different society," he said, adding that "every school must adapt to the local culture and dedicate some of its teaching for understanding the issues faced at large by the society." "Understanding behavioural actions will ultimately form the future. ''Finance Minister said that Kashmiris are going through difficult times. "Many unfortunate things have happened and I am not talking about politics or academics. No other culture is richer than Kashmiri culture in terms of liberalism, acceptance and diversity," he said. " There was a need to go back to the past to reclaim that identity." There is need for changing the current mind-set Kashmiri "society needs to rediscover the moorings of Sufism and Rishism. Following the 30-year long proxy war from Pakistan the Kashmiri society is faced with new challenges and these challenges could be surmounted provided the youth changes its mind-set. And it is not an easy for the state or the central Governments to transform the youth to lead a new wave of peace and progress. The few available social institutions like schools need to foray beyond academics and find solution to social issues. The conflict-ridden societies need to develop the sensitivity for finding a long term solution. Schools should focus about their future. And there is a major role for the Government to play in the shape of resolving the problem of unemployment. Once the problem of unemployment was settled it could provide jobs to youth who are being lured by militants. The unemployed youth is rewarded for each armed attack and this has to be tackled by the Government.
