Losing Ground: Yasin Malik Hampers Rescue Opertions In Flood-Hit Jammu And Kashmir

Perturbed over Indian Army’s unmatched rescue effort in Jammu and Kashmir the separatist leaders have been found hampering the on going relief work in flood hit Srinagar. Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik and his aides reportedly tried to hamper the rescue and relief efforts being carried out by the Indian Army, under Operation Megh Rahat, in a flood-hit area of the Kashmir Valley.

According to the reports, the JKLF chief and his aides hijacked a rescue boat in order to ‘personally’ distribute relief items. Malik and his supporters are seen in a video – available on social media as well as broadcast by an English news channel – asking relief workers to abandon a boat so that they could carry out the rescue operation themselves.

In more shameful act, the separatists are even seen allegedly forcing ailing lady patients to disembark from the Army relief boat. The JKLF chief reportedly said that Kashmiris do not want the Army rescue efforts to continue in Kashmir.

Earlier also, separatist leaders are believed to have provoked some Kashmiris to pelt stones at Army and NDRF rescue teams. In some instances, Army choppers bringing relief were not allowed to land.
