At a time when Jammu and Kashmir is battling the worst floods in nearly six decades, the Centre and state government and various NGOs are trying their best to provide relief to the flood-hit victims, separatist leaders are creating huge problems in rescue operations and distribution of relief materials.
A video of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) leader Yasin Malik surfaced on Monday in which he allegedly asked voluntary relief workers not to distribute food items, as only JKLF can operate in that particular area. Malik and his team later looted the relief materials and boats of aid workers and started distributing the items among the victims. The inhuman act of separatists is not limited to distribution of relief materials but they also threatened patients to avoid Army assistance despite strong protests by the locals. Meanwhile Dheeraj Shan, NSUI Gen.Secretary Kishtwar unit condemned this inhuman act and asked the government to take strict action against such bad elements who are trying to disturb the environment of the state.
