Mission save Kashmiri children


Kailash Satyarthi should take help of Hamid Ansari

As a part of his on-foot rally across India to save children from abuse for sex and violence, Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi will visit Jammu and  Kashmir also.

It would be a very good idea if he takes along  ex-Vice President Hamid Ansari also to Jammu and Kashmir. Just before his retirement, Ansari had expressed deep concern for the Kashmiri children being used as stone pelters.  He had said: “…when young boys and girls come out on to the streets and throw stones day after day, week after week, month after month, it’s something to worry about because they are our children, they are our citizens.”

Perhaps, Ansari will be in a better position to talk to those young boys and girls of Kashmir and find a solution.

Disclaimer: Believe me, I am not being sarcastic. I genuinely believe that a former diplomat and experienced leader like Hamid Ansari should be given an opportunity to find a solution.
