Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Friday said that schools in Jammu and Kashmir are instilling wrong information into students’ mind by showing them a map of their state and not just one Indian map.

“In the schools in Jammu and Kashmir, what teachers are teaching should not be taught. In schools, there can be seen two maps – one of India another of Jammu and Kashmir. Why do we need a separate map for the state? What does it teach the children?” Rawat said addressing the media ahead of the Army Day on January 15.

On combating terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, General Rawat asserted, “We may have neutralised several terrorists but we have also caught 39 of them alive because we wanted to give them a second chance.”
