The people of the local Muslim community have set an unsurpassed example of communal harmony in the Kulgam district of South Kashmir. An elderly Hindu woman living in Begum village of the district passed away. For his funeral, the Muslim community people living in his neighbourhood arranged all the necessary things. He did not let the bereaved family feel that he belonged to another community and was alone. On the cooperation of the people of the neighbouring Muslim community, the son of the deceased said that there is no difference between Kashmiri Pandits and Muslims here. There is an eternal bond between all communities. They have been helping each other in their sorrows and happiness.

Lajwanti Devi, a 75-year-old older woman who died due to illness in Begum village of Kulgam district, belonged to the Rajput fraternity. Seeing the family’s condition, the local Muslim community decided to perform the last rites. Local Abdul Rashid Khande said that they together started arranging the necessary materials for the funeral and, along with the family, performed the last rites of the deceased.

Abdul Rashid Khande said that this Rajput family has been among them for years. I never considered that family separate from society. He has also been seeing them as his family. So be with him in every sorrow. Lajwanti’s family also never let it feel like he was from a different community, and he felt isolated.

On the other hand, Rajinder Singh, son of the deceased, said that Kashmiri Muslims and Pandits are all equal. Both have been the hallmark of Kashmiriyat. Kashmir is incomplete without both. Here there is an eternal bond among all the communities. That is the beauty of society. Today, the Muslim community’s participation in Lajwanti’s funeral is a unique example of communal harmony.

JK Education Chamber Calls for Immediate Opening of Schools

Pendency of files at Fee Fixation Committee creating a state of chaos among parents and schools ‘Witch-hunting of schools need to be stopped. Right to reply of Schools is being buried under social media trial Jammu Kashmir Education Chamber – an amalgam of all private schools associations of J&K, today called on the government to reopen the schools with immediate effect as the continuous closure of schools is creating substantial social, psychological and academic problems.

The Chamber said that the schools in Kashmir had been closed since 2019, and to date, nobody in the government is coming out with any roadmap for the opening of educational institutes.

“Every expert and educationist says that there is no alternative to brick and mortar classrooms, and online classes create huge problems. If the schools are not opened any time soon, the future of our students is at stake,” a Spokesman of the JKEC said.

On the fee fixation issue, the Chamber said that the pendency of files at the Fee Fixation & Regulation Committee (FFRC) is creating problems and chaos among both parents and school administration.

“Recently, there was a statement wherein the FFRC has said that schools are not submitting the files. But the truth is that schools have been continuously submitting the files to resolve the fee, particularly the transport issue. Private Schools Association of Jammu and Kashmir has also met the committee number of times to resolve the issue. In the transportation sector, we have drivers, conductors and other fixed expenses. Considering all the aspects, we wanted the FFC to issue a general order so that the issue is resolved for once and all, but that is still awaited,” the Spokesman said. “The fact is that when several schools went to the office of FFRC to submit their files, the officials at the office refused to accept the files by saying that ‘first we will clear the old files, and then only we will accept the new files.’ So as of now, neither are old files being disposed of nor are the new files being cleared.”

The Chamber said that all schools are fully cooperating on the issue, but the slow work from the FFRC side is creating a huge backlog. “The statement that the schools are not submitting the files are not based on facts,” the Spokesman said.

The Chamber also raised questions over the composition of the FFC, saying that no school has any representation in the committee and the voice of schools is not being heard.

“They don’t have any Chartered Accountant or other financial experts to look into the financial aspect of private schools professionally. Secondly, the FFRC can be truly impartial if it has representatives of private schools associations in its composition. Otherwise, it becomes a one-sided affair. It seems that the fee committee is looking at the financial aspect of schools from the eyes of students and parents. But there are other sides of the coin too which could have been brought to fore if only the committee has representations of private school associations,” the Spokesman said. “FFC has to be impartial otherwise right from the judge, members to other committee employees, all are parents and no-one is from school management.”

The Chamber also expressed its anguish over the recent attempts to defame schools on social media. “Private Schools are being defamed and projected as money minting machines. They are being branded as a capitalistic class instead of educationists. As of now, private schools feel humiliated and owning a school is being termed as some crime,” the Spokesman said.

The Chamber also called on the FFRC to maintain a level of official protocol to the official orders. “All orders coming from Fee Committee should be regulated under certain professional conduct. Even before the schools get the order, the same order is splashed all across social media. Sometimes schools are named even before any irregularity is established against them. Schools are not given the right to reply, and they are subjected to media trials. When the same schools come out with facts and figures to reply to those allegations, nobody listens to them. The damage to the reputation of that school is already done. The accused are termed as culprits even before the jury comes out with the verdict,” the Spokesman Said
