It was appalling enough that matters had come to such a pass that schoolteachers feel so vulnerable.

Battlefield school

It makes no sense to arm teachers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. What about the others? The provision of security and protection to life and property is the constitutional right of every citizen of Pakistan. This proves that the federal and provincial governments have failed to discharge their constitutional duties and therefore have no right to remain in office anymore.

Guns and teachers

I find it quite strange to learn that the hands which are supposed to hold a pen or a chalk will now be holding guns. It is a pity to hear that, ultimately, the teachers of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) will be given training in handling guns in order to deal with any untoward incident in schools. Although this step may prove to be productive, one must remember that teachers are very sentimental and empathetic in nature and might just never go to the extent of using the gun.
