Jammu, June 12: Environment Awareness Forum condemns the attitude of the authortires of the Mata Vaisno Devi Shrine Board for taking no preventive or rescue operation to save wildlife from being charred alive a very henious crime . Environment Awareness Forum appeals the Chief Minster Mehbooba Mufti to constitute a high level inquiry which shall go in for the Animals charred alive in repeated recent fires in the Trikuta Hills. In a statement Bhushan Lal Parimoo, President Environment Awareness Forum condemn that despite concern shown by the local animal lovers no protective measures were put in to practice to save hapless animals from engulfing fire.

Recent fire locals witnessed with horror that Shirine Board accorded its main thrust to ensure yatra route safe rest other aspects were thrown to winds. It is alleged which needs probe to pin and fix responsibility, that Animals did try to save themselves but iron fencing , no routes to escape got them charred to gruesome death.Some big wild animals managed to escape and caused loss in the villages near by. Even those Animals with burn injuries calling for the aid were not attended to.
Mata Vaishno Devi is a strictly vegetarian Goddess, it is painful and sacrilegious find that the Shrine Board authorities made to get charred of Animals in Her abode. Animals cannot speak, protest or call for punitive action against the perpetuators of cruelty against them. These are very serious charges levelled by the Animal lovers which need scrutiny .Shrine boards stoic silence in these charges is intriguing one. Pressure has been excreted to remain silent the Animal lovers from raising the issue on wider scale, poor locals approached media booth electronic and TV but these media disappointed the Animal lovers.
EAF takes serious note that the Shrine Board has not evolved and put in place any disaster management plan to Save Fauna from the fire which has become a frequent affair with the increase of YatraThe Department of the Jammu and Kashmir Wildlife Protection should have intervened under Wildlife Protection Act 1978 amended up to 2002 , protection of wildlife falls in its jurisdiction under law.EAF demands those responsible this heinous crime to be a silent spectator , causing death injury pain to the animals be booked under Animal cruelty act, with immediate effect.
