Time to join hands to end drug abuse in Kashmir: Tarigami

July 12, 2019 | BK DESK/SRINAGAR

Expressing concern over the reports of a steep rise in drug addiction in Kashmir, CPI (M) leader Mohamad Yousuf Tarigami on Thursday appealed the society as whole to wake up from slumber to counter this menace which is destroying our young generation.
“Kashmir has been through the three decades of turmoil that resulted in an increase in psychosocial disturbances, he said adding according to experts, most numbers of drug addiction cases belong to a very young generation which is not only unfortunate but disastrous for the society,” Tarigami said.
In a statement here this afternoon Tarigami said the grim picture of drug abuse in the Kashmir has put a lot of challenges for the people of the valley in general and for Government agencies, Non-Governmental Organisations in particular. “The biggest challenge is the illegal trafficking and sale of drugs within the valley to which police and civil society have an important role to play,” he said.
Tarigami said that the law enforcing agencies, media, civil society, traders, students, teachers and everyone has to join hand and eradicate the drug abuse menace from the society.
“A drug to which a person becomes addict does not merely impair his cognitive skills and behaviour but also permanently damage certain abilities depending on the amount of a dose to the impairment of the brain, drug addiction also makes people vulnerable to other health risks,” Tarigami said.
Commending J&K Police for having taken the initiative by conducting awareness programs in different areas, Tarigami said that more work needs to be done to eliminate the menace.
“There are reports that some elements within law enforcing agencies are hand-in-glove with the drug dealers. They need to be identified, isolated and finally punished according to the law,” he said.
Tarigami urged the government to launch measures aimed at mitigating, and possibly eliminating, drug use by 2020. “The other challenge is the limited facilities available for rehabilitation of drug addicts. More drug de-addiction centres are needed to rehabilitate the victims,” he said.
Tarigami called upon the government agencies, educational institutions, NGO’s and other social work institutes to educate people especially the young generation about this problem. “The awareness on the part of parents and caretakers is also an issue to tackle so that they can detect this problem as early as possible and they can provide immediate help to the person,” he said.
