The Jammu and Kashmir government on Saturday lashed out at army chief Bipin Rawat over his remarks about Kashmir schools, saying the “well-decorated officer” should not give sermons on issues that are not his domain.

The state government’s retort was in response to Rawat’s statementthat schools in the state were teaching two maps — India’s and Jammu and Kashmir’s — to the students, which he said was radicalising youth.

“The army chief is a respected and well-decorated officer of this country. He is a professional. I have no doubt on his professionalism. But I don’t think he is an educationist that he will give sermons on education,” state education minister Altaf Bukhari said.

“I don’t think any society accepts sermons on education from non-academicians,” he added.

Bukhari said education was a state subject and “we know how to run our education system”.

“There are two flags, we have a state constitution (owing to the state’s special status) and maps are in every state. Every school in every state has a state map because you explain it to them,” Bukhari said.

Taking a strong exception to Army Chief Bipin Rawat 's remark on education in the state, Jammu and Kashmir education minister Altaf Bukhari on Saturday said that there was no need for " sermons on education from non-academicians".

“Separatism would not be anywhere” if army does its job well, he said.

“I will be very happy if they do what they are supposed to do and leave us what we are supposed to do. They have a responsibility. Let them do their responsibility (sic), I don’t think separatism will be anywhere. They do their job well, all problem will be solved,” Bukhari added.

Addressing the media on the eve of Army Day on Friday, Bipin Rawat had linked the two-flag issue with militancy.

“...Why do we need a separate map for J&K? What does it teach the children? Most misguided youth come from schools where they are being radicalised,” he had said.

The army chief had also said that some control has to be exercised over madrassas and mosques “that spread misinformation”.

Bukhari said there was no harm in getting education from madrassas. “Education has its own domains. Madrassas also give education. There is no harm. Education is education. People go to China to learn,” the minister said.
