Budgam: Anjuman Shari Shian President and senior separatist leader Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi expressed concern over the drug abuse in Kashmir Valley.

  In his address during Friday congregational prayers at Imambara Budgam, Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi said that authorities should make sure that the smugglers and peddlers are punished severely.

He said lately the rampant drug abuse by Kashmiri youth has caused acute concern throughout the Valley. The problem is so steep that every parent is concerned about it.

Alarmed by the severity of the problem, he appealed to people to take part in “fighting this evil on a societal level” and told them not to wait for the government which, he said, is in a “deep slumber”.Jjjj

“I wonder why they are so sly and swift in arresting our youth when they protest and express their indignation on the streets” he said. “But when it comes to the actual policing, they are indifferent… ” he added.

Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi while welcoming the Amarnath Yatris said government should not halt the train service and curb the movement of the people.
