I have an inner voice in my mind, not sure if its schizophrenia, but I am pretty normal for a person.

The problem is this voice keeps whispering me to wish for destructive things for certain people, so that there is an example set for others to not to do the same ( these people haven't done anything wrong to me ) but have done evil things to their parents or other helpless people. Even if I don't want anything bad to happen the the above guys my subconscious keeps telling me the opposite.

The actual problem here is that the things that I (subconsciously) wish for these guys to happen actually become true after some time ( couple of years). and then I have to live with the guilt.

How can I stop these negative thought?

Don't worry sometimes this happens to me too, it's just the elephant mind running in the 10 directions as the guru says. I think most people have this problem, but the way to deal with this problem is to constantly remember God (chant waheguru or chant waheguru in the mind), listen to kirtan (i recommend with english translation, so you can understand it fully) and contemplate on the awesomeness of God that Gurbani talks about. The Guru says that the constant remembrance of God in the mind, in the midst of a person's worldly life is the goal of a human being.

I myself have started to do this, i feel so much more connected to God, i feel i act more compassionately too. Guru Ji also says that when we forget God, we lose our virtues (Man Ek na chetas mur mana. Har bisrat tere gun galia).

There's a nice video on this by nanak naam on youtube:

our mind is not always thinking about worldly duties all the time, so when we have this free time. E.g. walking to school/work, having a shower etc, we should think about God in the mind. God resides in the body and in the mind, that's how we can experience his bliss.
