STOP CUTTING OF HINDU KUSH MOUNTAIN FOREST
The Afghanistan And Pakistan Should Stop issuing of permit For Cutting of Hindu Kush Forest To Their Citizens in northern provinces of Afghanistan ,khyber pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit Balthistan provinces of Pakistan
Why is this important?
These are Rare Alpine Natural Forests ,Not only guard the region from the North but a very rare species of animal and Birds are present,which are also near to extinction and beautiful scenery which are the source of attraction for Nature lovers. The Climatic Changes of Afganistan and Pakistan are also Associated with this large scale Cutting of these forests which are continue From 1980s. Both Governments were involved in this deforestation. Afghans provinces Konar and Badkhshan were completely Vanished and Now The NOORISTAN forest are under Extinction ,Same in Pakistan. SWAT DIR Bajwar and Boner Districts OF khyber pakhtunkhwa were completely destroyed and CHITRAL district forests are under Elimination ,same in Giligit Baltistan province of Pakistan is under danger. Pak government allowed cutting of forests and bring it to Pakistani market through korakorm pass. The floods of 2011 and 2012 were due to these cuttings which displaced millions of people and killed Thousands.
