Lal Bazar protests alarming dog population
‘Why is government so concerned towards canines than humans?’
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, July 21: A few weeks after the death of a poor man because of dog bites, the residents of Lal Bazar said their life was at risk because of the alarming canine population.
Accusing the state government of being more concerned towards the welfare of dogs than humans, the Mohalla committees from Lal Bazar said stray packs have made their lives miserable.
An old man shared the problem he faces because of the stray packs. “Over the years I had been going to Masjid at night to pronounce the Fajr Azaan. But now because of so many dogs outside, I am finding it inconvenient to continue with the tradition,” the old man complained.
He has a reason. “Just last week dogs pounced on me and I was wounded. Though my children have been getting me treated, they have been indifferent towards my endeavor of going to Masjid in the dark,” he said.
Elaborating his point, the old man broke down saying: “My children have asked me to stay indoors saying that I was putting them to undue inconvenience by going out in the dark when dogs often attack people.”
Meanwhile, the Lal Bazar residents have threatened to kill the stray packs should the government fail to act at an earliest.
Just a few weeks back, a poor Raida Wala was bitten by deadly stray dogs. And he subsequently died of incurable rabies.
