It was sad to note that the school kids in Srinagar were targeted by stone-pelters and that reveals the sad state of mind of the people in J&K. All along the stone-pelters were attacking the army and the police forces and now gone far ahead and targeted the young school kids and the action needs to be condemned. The incident evoked a sharp reaction from all political leaders and it is not in good taste. A couple of students got injured in the stone hits and that shows the militant nature of the people working against the government and playing against the life of young children. It is not correct to pelt stones on school children and tourists coming into the state to pelt stones and disturb peace and harmony in the state. The perpetrators of this senseless and cowardly act are to be condemned and the state government should take serious action to stop the menace of the stone-pelters.
