Frislan (Islamabad), Dec 1: The chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front Muhammad Yasin Malik on Saturday visited Frislan, Pahalgam, where he distributed Rs 5.36 lakh to the fire affected families.
“The amount was raised for the purpose from some wealthy people of Pahalgam and other areas,” said Malik, while talking to the fire victims at Frislan village.
Thanking the people who provided money for the relief, Malik asked the general masses of Kashmir to stand up and help their brethren in this hour of need.
“In these days of intense cold the residential houses of our brethren have been reduced to ashes by a devastating fire. These people have lost everything and today they are even without roof and shelter and have even lost their clothes. These people need our immediate help so that they are able to face these cold days,” Malik said, adding “This is our moral, human and religious duty to help these poor people.”
Criticizing the government, and mainstream parties for ‘showing a cold shoulder’ to these affected people, Malik said, “These people come and ask for votes so that they can enjoy the luxuries of power but when people need them in their grief and sorrow they run away and show their back .”
Yasin Malik appealed to all people to join hands and help these people.
Malik was accompanied by other Front leaders including Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Sheikh Abdul Rashid, Muhammad Hussein Altaf, Bashir Kashmiri, Showkat Ahmad Dar, Muhammad Ishaaq Ganai and Muhammad Yousuf Mir.
Besides, senior advocate Zaffar Ahmad Shah and Dr Sajad Ahmad Reshi accompanied the delegation for providing legal aid and medical aid respectively to the affected people.
