Pahalgam, July 6: Islamic Fraternity Jammu and Kashmir organised a free mask distribution campaign at Pahalgam tourist resort.
Masks were distributed among the people in order to create awareness regarding the COVID19 pandemic which isn’t over yet. The volunteers of IF, following proper SOPs, distributed masks and created a mass mobilization regarding SOPs to be followed.
The gradual ease in Covid restrictions and opening of tourist places has led to the huge rush of people towards these places. Pahalgam being the most famous health resort is witnessing an immense rush of tourists. Some members of the public have complained that most of the visitors are not following COVID appropriate behaviour and seen roaming around without masks, putting their own and fellow visitors life at danger.
“It is indeed wonderful to see some responsible citizens here doing a fabulous job of distributing masks and creating awareness among people regarding Coronavirus,” said A Rameshwar, a tourist from the southern state of Tamil Nadu. “It would be much better if people come forward like Islamic Fraternity and do something for the society.”
“Most of the people visiting here are careless, irresponsible and are acting if the Virus is over which otherwise is not the reality. This is indeed is problematic,” said Mohammad Amir Chairman of Islamic Fraternity JK. “We are witnessing the huge gathering of people in the parks without masks and of course not maintaining any physical distance. We are organizing this programme to make people aware of the repercussions if they go on doing this,” he added.
