Why are students in J&K resorting to stone-pelting?

Quodsi everti ancillae vim qui lorem persius petentium Why are students in J&K resorting to stone-pelting?

NEW DELHI, APRIL 26 (ENA) As the soon as the teaching work in colleges across Kashmir Valley resumed on Monday after remaining on hold for five days, students of the SP College, SP Higher Secondary School and the Government College for Women clashed with the forces in the city's Maulana Azad Road area.

The classes in all the colleges were put on hold last Tuesday following widespread student demonstrations a day earlier against the alleged high- handedness of security forces against the students of Degree College Pulwama on April 15.

Declining to join classes, the students came out on the roads to block traffic on the busy road.
The stone-pelters were seen waving Pakistan flags and shouting anti-India slogans. It’s high time the government took note of this flagrant usage of anti-India sloganeering and comes to some conclusion.

The vehicles of security forces were attacked by many youth with bricks and sticks.
Students brought down a brick wall inside the college campus and used the bricks to attack security forces.

Few students spoke against the stone-pelters, saying they want to study, but some disturbing elements are unnecessarily creating chaos.

Police showed restraint while dealing with stone-pelting students. Water cannons were used to disperse the protesting students.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti yesterday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi appears acquiescent to holding talks with stake-holders in a bid to arrest the deteriorating situation in the Valley.
