Good work of Indian Express for enlightening its readers on wild life of our region. – Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune Dated 13th October, 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that it is good report on the preservation of wild life by the Indian Express. We hope it will use its influence on the Chandigarh Union Territory to strongly fence in its small forests and release the smaller species of deer and other such wild animals.
In Abhor in Punjab, there is an unfenced wild life sanctuary which is looked after by the local Vishnoi community, which holds the deer close to its religious beliefs as Hindu’s hold the cow, elephant and Hanuman. Sometimes, poachers enter this sanctuary and hurt the religious feelings of this community, which our Party opposes.
We hope the Indian Express will run reports of all the wild life sanctuaries of our region – Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab, Union Territory Chandigarh, Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh.
