Kashmiri Youth should have laptops in hand: HM

Union home minister Rajnath Singh gave advice to the Kashmiri youth saying education will help the state, not the stones in hand. He further blamed Pakistan for the ongoing unrest in Kashmir and how the country is continuously trying to derail peace in the valley.


"I am not hesitant to say that Pakistan is continuously trying to create unrest in Kashmir. The country wants to destroy the state by derailing peace in the valley," he said. Singh lashed out Pakistan while addressing BJP's Tiranga Yatra rally.


"I want to tell the people of Kashmir that we love the land of Kashmir and its people equally. I would like to tell them that we do not want to see stones, bricks or firearms in their hands but pen, computers and good jobs. We want to see the youth employed," Singh said.


He further added that a violent protest cannot be a solution to the issues that Kashmir is facing. There should be peace at first then issues can be resolved through talks.


"Recently, I went to Pakistan and you all know our neighbouring country's misdeeds. I don't want to repeat what happened over there but would like to say that I did not let India's pride go down there. I said that a country's terrorist cannot be the hero in one of the state," he said.
