Debatable issues in Society
Focusing on just a few is not going to work
DR. MUNEER AHMAD SOFI
The blood bath images on newspapers forced me to write a few lines on Dog Menace Vs Human Rights. Every one is giving his or her opinion on dog rage and finally the State Government came up with a sound policy to curb the issue which was a great threat not only to humans but our livestock in towns and villages as well which always goes unnoticed. Human Right weighs less than animal right in J&K. Every one talks about dog menace these days in the valley but no one dares to talk about day to day Human Rights violations all around. Some of the issues which are debatable are as under.
• There is uncontrolled price hike of all commodities including food items. Common man has to suffer a lot in managing all required expenses.
• Traffic jam, a very big problem, taken no serious note. The referred patients from district hospitals have to wait for hours at highways. Tourists, the backbone of our economy, have to wait in traffic jams and they carry their impressions back home. Recently an owner of a multinational company visited our valley and he got stuck in a traffic jam at Pantha Chowk on way to Pahalgam. He cancelled his visit to the resort and preferred to sit in his hotel.
• The incomplete/leftover drainage project has made life of common people hell in many areas like Buchpora, Malla Bagh, Elahi Bagh. The work is going on snails pace and no one is there to ask contractors about the delay in work.
• Private educational institutes are doubling fee every year. No one is taking care of this problem. Parents are talking about fee hike but separately not making a parent body that will discuss the matter and frame the modalities of fee structure.
• Crime rate is going high in cities.
• Social vulgarity has started to show its bad face in the valley.
All these are violations of Human Rights. No body seems to raise voice about these issues which are hiding behind the race of acquisitiveness. On the other side what I observe is that dogs are enjoying more rights than humans. They are being protected by Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) and Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
