  • Share

Rumour

A video is being shared on social media to claim that Indian forces have started cutting down trees and destroying gardens and forest in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370.

Minister for Human Rights in Pakistan government, Shireen Mazari tweeted the video with a caption "Indian occupation forces can't even bare to see fruit trees live in IOJK - lest the Muslim Kashmiris eat the fruit. Such is the barbarism of the Rogue Modi Govt's fascist hate-filled mindset. #Kashmir".

The video was also tweeted by journalist Ansar Abbasi with a caption "Who are these "killers"? Who will arrest them?". You can watch the video here:

A similar video was tweeted by a user @SAliGelani on Aug 27 with a caption "Article 370: After the occupation of occupied Kashmir, the Indian Modi government has started the atrocities of innocent Kashmiri gardens." You can watch the video here:

A Youtube channel Himachal Watcher had uploaded the video on Jul 6, 2018. According to the description, the video shows the slaughter of fruit-laden apple trees under the High Court mandated drive to free forest land from encroachers.

Here is another video of the same drive

According to a report by Indian Express, the Himachal Pradesh High Court had granted a week’s time to Special Investigation Team (SIT) to complete felling of the apple plants in the apple-belt of Shimla as part of a court-ordered drive to clear illegal encroachments on forest land.

 

 

Fact

The video being shared by several Pakistani handles is not from Jammu and Kashmir. It is from Himachal Pradesh. It was a High court-ordered drive to clear illegal encroachments on forest land in May 2018 in Shimla.

As far as Jammu and Kashmir is concerned, there are no media reports (or any other evidence) which can prove that gardens have been destroyed by Indian armed forces after the abrogation of Article 370.
