Impact of militarization on the children of Kashmir

A report by Mirza Saaib Beg

“All children in Kashmir grow as witnesses to the war around us. We go about our daily lives while an active war is raging in our backyards, our gardens, our schools, our hospitals. Despite the turmoil that engulfs us, our parents have prioritized education because they realize that this is a life-saving priority that will help us deal with the horrors that surround us and equip us with the most useful tools for our long-term well being.”
