SRINAGAR: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) Thursday said that the menace of drug abuse in Kashmir has reached unprecedented levels and the situation has become explosive.
President DAK, Dr Nisar-ul-Hassan, said that drug abuse in valley is promoted in a well planned conspiracy to wipe out youth of the valley.
Drugs are new weapons used for destroying our young generation.
The hope and future of Kashmir is lost to drugs, he said. Youth are targeted by drugs to make them physically, mentally and psychologically morbid.
It is a wicked conspiracy to destroy our social fabric and cultural traditions.
It is shameful at the same time painful that law enforcing agencies are involved in drug trafficking and supply to the youth, Dr Nisar said.
