Srinagar, Aug 31: In a bid to boost morale of the youth and enrich sports culture in restive South Kashmir,
Jammu and Kashmir People Association’s Kashmir Coordinator and student activist, Syed Tajamul Imran distributed over 100 cricket uniforms among cricket lovers.
Tajamul Imran says there are almost no recreational facilities for the youth living in Southern districts. “I am doing my bit to encourage youth and all I do in the loving memory of my brother Syed Ruban who lost life in a gunfight with government forces in the dense forest of Central Kashmir’s Charar-e-Sharif area in January 2019,” he said.
Tajamul told news agency KNT that he has been distributed cricket uniforms in Southern villages like Nazeenpora, Pinjoora, Shopain, Kakapora Pulwama and other hamlets. “I distribute these cricket uniforms as this was my brother’s favourite game. He was a talented cricketer, admired by his friends for his love for the game and talent he had got,” he said.
Tajamul is supported by his family and close friends in this endeavor.
“My family has always been my hope and friends are the best partners you can ever have, they provide monetary assistance to me”, Tajamul added.
Tajamul is of the belief that the youth in Kashmir has potential in every field than in any part of the world but the conflict is taking away everything these people possess.
“We should encourage them lest they may fall for drugs and other social evils. Rest they are free to choose whatever field they like”, Tajamul further added.
“It’s really a nice feeling when I get phone calls from youth who need such uniforms. I am thankful to people who have been encouraging me. I will keep this going and whatever possible I can do, I will,” he said adding that his ultimate desire is to keep the name of his brother alive.
Tajamul hails from Nazneenpora village of South Kashmir’s Shopian district.
