“There is potential in every youth of J&K but they don’t get the proper platform so I request them that they shouldn’t suppress them for not getting a platform and leave doing what they are fond of,” she said.


“Once they get depressed, they get involved in mental disorders which leads to drug abuse, suicides and other things which is not good for them, their family and society,” Naqati said.


“Our aim is to make Kashmir once again a paradise which it was but has degraded due to social issues. We want to take our youth out of social issues to make it paradise once again,” she added further.
