Actions of an individual and subsequently a nation, the operations of businesses and interests can profoundly affect animals’ lives.

From human overpopulation to giving animals the property status and their mistreatment to unnecessary killing of animals even the extincting species for an individual’s amuse and need, the cruel practices of farming and harming animals for fun and entertainment, the day is meant to make human realize the worth of an animal, their need in every being’s life and the significance of their protection and welfare.

Human warfare is another reason which imposes a big threat to the protection and welfare of animals. War, military activities and insurgencies anywhere in the world is not disturbing cultures, societies, people and generations but destroying the eco-cycle as well. The warfare interests of humans are threatening for the well-being of valuable fauna and flora of the affected region, one such region is the Earth’s heaven – Kashmir. The Indo-Pak tension over the border has been usurping the beauty of nature and essences to stabilize the eco-system from the piece of land called Paradise on land.

Markhor, black bear, white leopard are the most endangered and considered extincting species of the region.

The land mines across the border and the aggression on line of control is badly affecting the lives of not only innocent locals but the valuable species of animals are also on the verge of extinction. Across the LOC, many valuable and precious species are affected by the day and night bombing and shelling on both sides especially in Azad Kashmir.

Though the measures to preserve the valuable animals are not substantial in the region but the intermittent misuse of ammunition and artillery from India’s side and contious violation of LOC is largely upsetting the lives and well being of the natural fauna in Azad Kashmir.

According to experts, India’s offensive attitude on border is responsible for the killing of nature’s valuable assets which fumes the horrible repercussion of environmental and climate change hazards.

Across the border firing and sheling is imposing a grave threat to the endangered flora and fauna of the Earth s Paradise.

The international organizations working for the protection and well being of animals are required to carry out their role in compelling India to discontinue the life-threatening continuous firing along the line of control to safe those valuable species of animals and plants to vanish from the Earth.
