Why? What happened with him? Who murdered his dreams? I waited for a while to know the reason of his for not attending the school. Well, He did not know.
I started thinking. Is that the Government which is pointed as corrupt? Is that ….can’t make out. Meanwhile I got the answer from Mehul. “Dhamakewale log”, he answered. I felt very sad.
This is the truth in States of Chattisgarh, Bihar, Jharkhand. There are nearly 260 schools have been destroyed in Naxal violence in Maoist-affected states in the last five years as per Home Ministry report.
Not only this, in another report on violence faced by educational institutions globally, UNESCO has cited various examples of Naxal violence including destruction of 11 schools in Jharkhand and nine schools in Bihar between January and July 2009.
Chattisgarh’s School children educational rights are affected as most number of schools are hit by Naxal violence. It is followed by Jharkhand. While the figure in Chhattisgarh was 131, it was 63 in Jharkhand. 46 schools were destroyed by the Maoists in Bihar between 2006 and November this year.
In 2009, a total of 71 schools were attacked by the Naxals in six Maoist-hit states -- Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Orissa, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. Altogether 59 schools were destroyed by the Naxals in 2006, 43 in 2007, 25 in 2008, 39 in 2010 and 21 in 2011 (till November), it said.
In its worldwide report--Education under Attack, 2010, UNESCO said that in the whole of 2009, at least 50 schools were attacked in Jharkhand and Bihar as part of Naxals violence.
But who is getting destroyed? Whose fundamental rights given by Indian Constitution are violated? Now who will file Public Interest Litigation against these ‘Dhamakewale log’. Who got the answer? I want a justice to Mehul Kumar.
