Inqilabi slams SASB
Srinagar, Feb 3: Chief Patron of Jammu Kashmir Mahaz-e-Azadi (MeA) Muhammad Azam Inqilabi Sunday alleged that the leaders in New Delhi don’t understand that “due to lingering Kashmir dispute entire South Asia is sitting on a powder-keg.”
On Amarnath Yatra, Inqilabi said: “We are not against Amarnath pilgrimage. It was a simple religious activity. But Delhi Durbar politicized the pilgrimage to browbeat Kashmiris.” He said the “Indian leaders don’t understand the sensitive Kashmir situation.
He said that extending Amarnath yatra duration by the SASB will badly affect Kashmir’s environment, ecology and bio-diversity. “Pahalgam glaciers provide drinking water to entire valley. Ecological imbalance in the area will severely affect its glaciers and deprive people of drinking water,” he said.
MeA patron said environmental experts should take “serious note of it and aware people of its fallout.”
