“Akhtar should desist from forcing people to end the strike,” it warned.

People of Kashmir are educated and “can differentiate between good and bad. The present struggle is not against education system but against Indian occupation. If Naeem Akhtar doesn’t budge, we will initiate action against him”, Shah said in the statement.

Akhtar has been constantly requesting everybody, including the separatist leadership, that since education concerns the future of Kashmir, educational institutions must be left out from the ambit of protests and shutdowns.
