The unseen valleys of kashmir are losing its scenic beauty either it was Tosmaidan or Bajpathri (Yousmarg) in future. Kashmir and kashmiris are going to suffer and face the serious enviromental issues in future.
King of the Meadows – Tosmaidan was leased to the indian army in 1964 for setting up an artileary firing range which ended on april 18 2014.Atleast 64 civilians lost their life due to
unexploded shells.Now the turn is for the people of BAJPATHRI in the vicinity of scenic yousmarg where army is seeking to establish new firing range.The legendary beauty of
Bajpathri is at risk and in its last stage. Natural beauty and pleasant enviroment is going to end and will be changed into war field and blood bath where the civilians will experience the worst days of their life.The battle is between the trainee of indian army
so called solidier and the innocent people of Bajpathri .WHO WILL SUFFER ,WHO WILL DIE ,WHO WILL LOSE THEIR EYE SIGHT, WHO WILL BE HANDICAPPED ,WHO WILL BE RUINED none another than the innocent people who are screaming for the help.
The people who calls for the BANDHS and CHALOS are passive spectators why dont they call any BANDH or CHALO against it.The people who call themselves as saviours of human rights in the cases like kunanposhpora
why dont they do something to avoid kunanposhpora like incedent in future.The peolple who claim themselves as enviromentalists do something to save the ecology of Yousmarg.The opposition parties are behaving like mute audiences why they dont take any inititaive for this noble cause if they rise unnecessary issues which fullfill their vote banks. Do they want to repeat the history of TOSMAIDAN in BAJPATHRI.
If we resist againt SAINIK COLONIES, NHPC PROJECTS, NEET ROW, PANDIT TOWNSHIPS and many other issues why can’t we take stand for the safeguarding of BAJPATHRI . The firing range will affect the natural vegetation and various drinking water supply schemes which will effect badly the people taking advantage
from these schemes . The people of CHARAR I SHARIEF and other adjacent areas will be the main sufferers of firing range.
LETS JOIN HANDS TOGETHER TO SAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL PART OF PARADISE
LETS JOIN HANDSTO SAVE INNOCENT PEOPLE

LETS SAVE THE BEAUTY OF PARADISE
LETS SAVE BAJPATHRI FROM BECOMING WAR FIELD
LETS SAVE YOUSMARG
