More than 200 private and public schools along the LOC (line of actual control) in the Jammu area have been closed due to heavy and continued firing and shelling from Pakistan army. This seems almost non-stop. Per reports similar shelling in not reported in Kashmir, which could mean that Pakistani army and terrorists are targeting schools in Jammu. In a another development, miscreants or terrorists in the Kashmir valley have set buildings of 27 schools on fire, and this is on top of the four-month shutdown of educational institutes ordered by the the separatists.

China seems to be creating problems or obstacles at every opportunity. If things are too quiet, it will embark on border violations, recently it strongly and publicly opposed India’s entry into the NSG (nuclear suppliers group), and it also opposed the UN sanction of Pakistani terrorist groups. This is unfortunate as India gave up its United Nations (arguably foolishly by then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru) on questionable grounds) in favor of China, gave up Ladakh territory to China and did not condemn or oppose Chinese occupation of Tibet. So, it is now time for India to get aggressive with China at any opportunity. Should we boycott Chinese goods to send them a message?
